You know what they say: “The past is in the past.”
Is it, though?
It’s 2019 and Sara Sullivan, thirty-five and deeply scarred by a troubled childhood, is finally feeling pretty good about life in her new house with Bat, her beloved black cat and only companion. That is, until she investigates the abandoned house next door and mysteriously wakes up as a 19-year-old college student in 1989 — the only person who can stop a deadly campus bombing.
Sara learns quickly that connecting with people — not her strong suit — is going to be the key to discovering the bomber’s identity and preventing the tragedy. Along the way, lonely outcast Charlie Anderson develops complicated feelings for Sara and has a run of bad luck with the campus bully – which put him on a deadly path to revenge.
Sara and Charlie gradually find themselves on a collision course toward a horrific event that will rock a vibrant Midwestern city to its core and leave a legacy of death and destruction. Is their tenuous friendship enough to save the people who finally taught Sara to trust? Or will she fall victim to tragedy in the past, forever altering the future?
You know what else they say: “What is meant to be will always find a way.”

I was fortunate enough to get an advanced copy of Charlie’s Mirror. It is a riveting thriller. I am not a huge reader, but I didn’t put the book down. The descriptions of the settings made it easy to picture myself walking around Madison. I highly recommend Charlie’s Mirror.
I was fortunate to get an advanced copy of Charlie’s Mirror from Brenda Lyne! This read is quite a ride! It’s a compelling work of fiction that starts fast and never slows down. The story continually twists and turns its way to a marvelous end. GREAT READ!!
I was lucky and blessed with the trust of my dear friend “Goose”, aka Brenda Lyne, to read an early draft of Charlie’s Mirror.
I was enthralled. Sara’s self journey into the middle of a horrific campus tragedy was as captivating as it was tumultuous. This story asks, “what could or would you do to change the past, if the world threw you into the prelude of a violent catastrophe?” But the journey is, “could you change yourself? Would you alter your self image enough?” Because it was you and your voice that was needed to make that change for others.
I loved reading this story.
