I have read this book twice, and even the second time, it's one of those books I couldn't put down! The author balances tension with reality, and skillfully treads a Christian message through the book in a captivating style. Christian issues are explored without confrontation to the reader, provoking me to thought even days after I had finished the last page. The main character, Miriam, has an endearing, whimsical gentle nature. The inner battles she and those close to her face are 'everyman' struggles. The way the book is cleverly set out - with situations running parallel - means that the reader has time to think, and come back to what is happening in the next segment or chapter. Even the epilogue has an endearing quality, implying that life may not always work out the way we plan, but it does work out. I recommend this to any woman - young or older - who has a love of reading. This is not a soppy story. It has a bit of drama and excitement, so it is perfect for someone who may be beginning her Christian walk, or, at the other end of the scale, well on her way with God. Mirage is a great read! Well done Jeanette Grant-Thomson.
