The third book by author Stephanie titled Mirror Mirror: A Collection of Memoirs and Stories, is a riveting collection of fast-paced stories from her childhood, ancestral background, youth, and family life. With her keen eye for detail, the author shines a light on varying experiences, events, and personalities that have colored her life. Intimate, heart-wrenching, and at times comical, the book’s composition is almost poetic, and yet highly engaging for any reader. The author’s evocative yet accessible style makes her story distinctly relatable. This memoir by Stephanie Hart, though unique, opens up channels where readers can’t help but see their personal narratives in her words. The reminiscent nature of the book compels the audience to revisit old memories and re-imagine their lives with family and friends. Mirror Mirror: A Collection of Memoirs and Stories gives us insight into how the writer progressed through her life to get to where she is today. She takes us back to her childhood by the sea where her parents’ marriage dissolves, onto her adventures as the only Jewish girl in a Presbyterian boarding school, to urban Brooklyn, where she spent her high school trying to differentiate herself from her volatile and charismatic mother. Next, the author widens the portals of the past by taking us to Moscow and Odessa of the 1800’s to introduce us to her grandparents and great grandparents. Finally the writer shifts to the twenty-first century, where as an adult, she is able to acknowledge the power of the past, forgive and transcend it, inviting love, magical moments, and intimate friendship into her life. The author’s expressive imagery invites the reader to experience each one of Hart’s stories in its entirety. Photographs of her family further enhance the reading experience.

Author Stephanie Hart brings her detailed lifelong experiences to vivid life with her beautiful expressive writing style and splendid descriptions of the people in her life and the scenes from the places where she lived and visited. What impressed me the most about her stories was the reminiscent authentic narrative along with the absorbing time-line she portrays from her childhood to her adulthood. Her childhood years were haunting and poignant, as she basically grew up with unloving parents. Her struggles and triumphs over her lifetime are very real and will be fully relatable to many readers. She writes with beautiful fluidity and gently imposes it all vividly into the reader’s mind with compelling, powerful images and intimate prose. This unique memoir is written with such affection, touched with humor and wit. The author emphasizes an understanding that all of life’s experiences, good and bad, are all one vast journey as a whole, which readers will definitely be inspired and encouraged by while savoring her words to the very last page. I was captivated, fascinated and deeply touched by Stephanie Hart’s incredible stories of sadness, hardship and courage, as well as her times of fulfillment and joy, but especially by her gracefully written poetic writing style.
Mirror Mirror is a deep reflection of emotion, life and one woman’s extraordinary ability to endure life’s adversities, and then brilliantly write her remarkable story that is both riveting and beautiful. Artisan Book Reviews highly recommends Mirror Mirror: A Collection of Memoirs and Stories by Stephanie Hart.
