Mirrors

Publisher: Holland House Books

A letter from a mother to her daughter reveals a life changing secret…Thousands of miles away, a woman is trapped in a loveless marriage…

Shika has lived in the shadow of her sister’s ghost all her life. The death of her father compels her to search for the answers to questions she had buried long ago. Determined to recover a scattered past and make sense of herself, Shika undertakes a journey which leads her across the world, to the heart of Kolkata.

Mirrors is a story of identity, truth, and uncovering who we truly are.

“But you won’t forget. And you mustn’t. This is a part of you, the strong part, the part that made you want to change things.”
