Mirror Image

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 twins Olivia and Victoria, coming of age at the turn of the century, their bond was mysterious, marvelous, and often playful - a secret realm only they inhabited. Shy, serious Olivia, born eleven minutes before her sister, had taken over the role of mother in their lush New York estate. Free-spirited Victoria wanted to change the world, and embraced the women's suffrage movement, dreaming of sailing to war-torn Europe. Then, in the girls' twenty-first year, as the First World War escalated overseas, a fateful choice changed their lives forever. Handsome lawyer Charles Dawson came into their lives to try to save the reputation of Victoria, whose life was about to become a public scandal.Still mourning the death of his wife aboard the Titanic, struggling to raise his nine-year old son, Charles was determined never to lose his heart again. An irrevocable step took one of the twins to the battlefields of France, and the other into a marriage she longed for but thought she could not have. From Manhattan society to the trenches of war-torn France, Mirror Image moves elegantly and dramatically through a rich and troubled era. With startling insight, Danielle Steel explores women's choices: between home and adventure, between the love for family and the passion for a cause, between sacrifice and desire.
