It was called (I think) "The Mirror"  .   I thought it was by Barbara Michaels, but it's not on her published list.  I read this in the 1970s.  On the cover it has a girl looking into a strange mirror with hands all around the mirrored surface.  The synopsis of the book is that a girl exchanges souls with her grandmother and grows up in the early part of the century instead of the latter part of the century where she was born.   I would love to know if this is still in print or if anyone has it.

Thanks!

Funny you should post this, I traded my copy of The Mirror a few months back and regretted it.....today I found another copy at the local thrift shop and brought it home with me :) Great book.

I don't have a copy, but couldn't resist posting...I remember reading that book when I was a kid.  I know I loved it then.
