Mirror Image is the story of a bizarre relationship between two elderly, neighbouring women. It is also a statement of the anonymity of many folk living in the suburbs and an observation of the lasting effect of hurtful childhood experiences.
It is a story too of envy and desire that leads one woman to murder, in pursuit of her dream, with a callousness that shocks. The reader follows the gradual growth in some areas of her placid life, none of which is able to change her basic damaged personality.
This story could be happening in the street where you live.
