"A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one."
-George R.R. Martin
I take solo road trips fairly often and enjoy listening to audio books. On my last road trip, I downloaded Mimi Foster's book Maisy's Mirror. I'm not exactly sure how to describe it other than a "delightful read from an author skilled in creative story and character development".
Curious what other readers had to say, I went to Amazon and read several reviews. I found this one by Anne Marie Smith particularly good:
"This was such a beautiful story told by a creative author! This is undoubtedly her best book yet! The story captured life and captured me. Sometimes I feel weak when others see me as strong. How I felt so vulnerable many times in my life. Mostly Foster captured how many people are when we are alone, when no one is looking. When we cry or am allowed to fall apart within the safe harbors of our homes. When we don't like what or who we see when we look in the mirror but someone else can see our beauty. And the ending could not have been more perfect! This book is absolutely one of the best books ever. Loved Foster's storytelling .... right up there with Nicholas Sparks, and is actually in a league of its own. This is her best work yet! "

An accident took her husband's life, but has her decision to live in seclusion taken her mind?
Trying to escape the secret that was exposed when he died, the young author wants no entanglements with anyone who might intrude on her solitude. Maisy Hollis is convinced her sanity is slipping when she "meets" the handsome Wills Raines, a World War II hero whose reflection speaks with her through an antique mirror she brought home from an estate sale.

Whether you enjoy reading a real book, Kindle or via Audible I recommend Maisy's Mirror by our very own ActiveRainer Mimi Foster. I will definitely be reading (or listening to) more of Mimi's books. Mimi has entered the ranks of my favorite authors. I've already started on another Mimi Foster book, Madeline's Mansion. Hopefully, I'll have a report on that soon.
