The Mirrors at Barnard Hall

By Jenny Hickman


Hello stopping by once again. Hope everyone is well and that the sun is shining where you are!! It will be spring soon!! I am looking forward to the snow melting and the birds returning and the spring flowers popping up!! Today’s book is a short book about time travel through mirrors.

I received this as an e-galley from Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. It was published in 2012 and is only 312 pages.

When Callista Franklyn looks into the mirrors at Barnard Hall, she sees reflections of the present… and visions of the past.

This was a good first novel attempt. It actually is a good story line with interesting characters that travel back and forth in time. There are elements of love, magic and fantasy. I would have liked the parts about the 1900’s to be a tad more descriptive. It didn’t always feel like a different time period. The past and the present periods both could have been elaborated on more and possibly a more seamless passage back and forth of the characters between time. I like the idea of time traveling back and forth and changing history, but it was not very realistic in it’s transitions. I give this one a 3 out of 5.
