Riveting story about time travel. Thanks to everyone who mentioned this book on the paperbackswap forum. I never would have read it otherwise. This is one I would not have wanted to miss.

This is one of the best books I have ever stayed with me forever...I lent my original copy to a friend and never got it back. I was thrilled when it was rereleased....a true keeper for me!

Well written and satisfying, the first part (Shay's life in Brandy's body) was by far the most interesting of the three sections. The last part -- Brandy in Shay's body -- really dragged during the time at the old coot's farm, and was less interesting because it was generally all taking place within a year. It picked up steam when the family started to belive the incredible tale in the diary though.

This book has stayed with me for years, I re-read it every once in awhile, the concept is grasping, a bride looks into a mirror and becomes the last bride who looked into it, anyone who loves time traveling will be sucked into this one. Especially, imagine what it would be like to actually have to stay there and live out another's life!

This is one of my all time favorite books. I have read it over & over. I once lent my copy to someone & never got it back. One day browsing a used book store I found it. I have never lent it out again! It's about a girl who travels back in time & lives as her grandmother. It's mostly about Shay's life as Brandy. You'll love this book if you like time travel type books

This was recommened to me by the head librarian and I loved it. IT is still one of my favorites and a rare book that I read twice.

I agree with some other reviewers who stated the beginning is best. I did not enjoy the end at all. I wish it could go the opposite direction because the way it ended had me glad it was over.

A chilling story of a haunted mirror and the havoc it wreaked in the lives of those who possessed it... and those yet to possess it.
