Mirror Image
Author: Danielle Steel
To look at one was to see the other. For family, even the girls' own father, it was a constant guessing game. For strangers, the surprise was overwhelming. And for the twins Olivia and Victoria Henderson, two remarkable young women coming of age at the turn of the century, their bond was mysterious, marvelous, and often playful--a secret realm o...  more »

Great book - this was a book about twin women set during WWI. I felt this was a better DS book since it had two main characters. It never slowed down like some of the DS books seem to...RECOMMENDED!

This was the first book I have read by Danielle Steel. I really enjoyed it. I didn't want to put it down and wanted to stay up all night to finish it. I can't wait to read more by this author!

"Mirror Image" is one of those books that you just wanted to keep reading, no matter what else was going on around you. Steel did a fairly good job of keeping the reader guessing as to how and when certain characters would find out certain things. Remember, folks, that this story was not taking place in the 21st century. You have to put a character's actions and attitudes into perspective!

Steel's 46th heartbreaker delves into the seemingly inexhaustible dramatic depths of Titanic lore, idyllic love, and delectable stars. Olivia and Victoria Henderson are beautiful, young, wealthy twins who live in upper-crust Croton-on-Hudson in upstate New York at the turn of the century. Despite their life of ease (playing tennis with the Astors, being courted by a Rockefeller), they do face the daily grind of caring for their beloved Pa, who has never recovered from Mrs. Henderson's death. Then along comes another forlorn widower, sexy Charles Dawson, whose wife perished at sea. "Damn shame she came back on the Titanic," says Mr. Henderson--who doesn't know what the Lusitania has in store for his family. As the plot thickens with the onset of World War I and the suffrage movement, Victoria--the demon seed of the dynamic duo--gets into a spot of trouble. Big enough that dutiful yet daring Olivia must bail her out in a way that it would spoil everything to reveal. If A Farewell to Arms was adapted to an ABC Monday night movie, it might bear a resemblance to Mirror Image. But in Hemingway, or on TV, there were never such devoted sisters. As the narrator puts it, reflecting on the feelings of one sister for the other, "She was her partner, her confidante, her friend, her cohort in all mischief ... the other side of her life, her heart ... the other side of the mirror
