From Manhattan high-society to warn-torn France, Mirror Image is a compelling story about the mysterious bond between twin sisters. For twins Olivia and Victoria, their bond was mysterious, marvellous, 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 escalates overseas, a fateful choice changes their lives forever...

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » With 370 million books in print, Steel's 45th novel arrives even while her last four titles wait like gold bricks in Dell's paperback inventory. Mirror Image tells of Olivia and Victoria Henderson, identical twins born in 1893, such close look-alikes that even their bewildered, widower father can't tell them apart - an unlikelihood one must just accept. Toss out grammar as well; the first paragraph, describing Edward Henderson's home and family, tells us that "Nestled as they were in Croton-on-Hudson . . . his attorneys came to see him fairly often." But Steel's golden drone captures readers and laughs at criticism. The story here opens with the twins at age 20, Olivia caring for the house while Victoria flies about, rides horses, smokes boldly, drives cars, and stumps for women's suffrage. Olivia carries herself like the shy young spinster-heiress of Washington Square; Victoria goes out and gets pregnant by married Toby Whitticomb, then has an abortion. Meanwhile, among the guests at the Hendersons' is widower lawyer Charles Dawson, whose wife went down on the Titanic. Olivia feels a deep attachment for him, but Edward Henderson chooses Charles to marry Victoria and save her reputation. Even so, married Victoria still carries the torch for that bastard Toby, while Charles can't forget his first wife. As for Olivia, whom Charles can't tell from Victoria, well, if you can't guess what happens next you haven't been alive for a very long time. Cliche follows ever bolder cliche as the Steel style grinds out its mellow surprises for the blissfully half-asleep. (Kirkus Reviews)
