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!

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 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

One of my favorites that I've read 3 times over the years & highly recommend. Shay/Brandy delves into many fascinating areas of her life as she time travels back into her grandmothers body after looking into the "mirror".
How many of us have patiently listened to our ancestors rattle on & on about their past while only half listening? Imagine going back in time & reliving their lives, while trying to remember who was who and what had happened to them at what point in their lives along the way. All the while knowing we were trapped in their body & now had to live that life. This wonderful book makes you feel like you are right there! LOVE IT!

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.
