 About the Book 

Although the closet was dark and damp, it was a safe haven for the little girl hiding inside. Do you hear Gods wrath, girl? the monster raved. Hes punishing you for not doing as youre told. Liz covered her ears, trying to block out the screamsMoreAlthough the closet was dark and damp, it was a safe haven for the little girl hiding inside. Do you hear Gods wrath, girl? the monster raved. Hes punishing you for not doing as youre told. Liz covered her ears, trying to block out the screams coming from the other side of the closet door as lightning shrieked and thunder roared through the mountains surrounding the old farmhouse. In Child in the Mirror, Liz is torn between the excitement of a fresh start in the Big City and an ever-present black cloud looming overhead. Desperately she tries to fit in, but her imagination is relentless, playing tricks with her mind until she finally contemplates the possibility of going insane. The reader is exposed to the scars of an abusive childhood, a little girls cry for help, and a young couples desperate attempt to save their newborn son. Join Liz on her journey into a world of black flowing gowns, rosary beads, and crisp white habits. Join her on trips to New York City in the 1930s filled with colorful characters, family traditions, culture, and an examination of religion versus spirituality.
