I enjoyed this book a lot. It deals with a young woman about to get married. She receives a present of a strange mirror. The mirror has powers and shows strange things. The mirror causes the girl to switch bodies with her grandmother, transporting her soul back in time about 70 years to her grandmother's 20 year old body.

Anyone who had read Michael Moorcock's "Behold the Man" or has seen the Twilight Zone episode where an Elvis impersonator goes back in time to look for Elvis can guess what happens next. Mainly the young girl is forced to live out the life of the grandmother based on what she knows about the grandmother and thus creating the grandmother. What makes this book so good is that it returns to the present and we see the grandmother living out her life in the body of the granddaughter. The author does a marvelous job of showing us the present time through the eyes of someone from the past. It makes us want to re-examine our own lives for wonders we took for granted.
