Product description

Product Description

On September 11, 2020, Ginny and Katie Smith celebrate their nineteenth birthday at a country fair near Seattle. Ignoring the warnings of a fortune-teller, they enter a house of mirrors and exit in May 1964. Armed with the knowledge they need to return to their time, they try to make the most of what they believe will be a four-month vacation. But their sixties adventure becomes complicated when they meet a revered great-grandmother and fall in love with local boys. In THE MIRROR, the sequel to THE MINE and THE SHOW, the sisters find happiness and heartbreak as they confront unexpected challenges and gut-wrenching choices in the age of civil rights, the Beatles, and Vietnam.

I have read all John Heldt’s Northwest Passage “Time Travel” stories. Rather than provide a synopsis on each and every one, I’m instead going to simply state my assessment of these novels as a whole and include it as a review on each one of the of the series.

Every story is about traveling into the past and setting the stage for the future. If you like time-travel, you’ll love this series. If I had to pick my favorite, for now I think “The Journey” would be it, but that’s just me.

Every story is a stand-alone novel. Occasionally there will be a subtle reference to one of the other novels, but that too is sufficiently explained to make it germane to the current story without requiring one to read any of the other stories.

Because every story is stand-alone, they don’t have to be read in any order. However, reading them in the sequence of being written will enable the reader to make most of the “connections” no matter how subtle they are. (“The Journey” is the only one that doesn’t appear tie in to the others – unless I missed something.)

What impresses me the most is how the author managed to tell five different stories, yet have them tie together in so many subtle ways. How was he able to keep track of everything? And, bless his heart, he doesn’t introduce too many characters to keep track of (I hate getting most of the way through a novel only to wonder “who’s Fred?” when he shows up long after being forgotten by myself).

The only “negative?” comment I might make is that the protagonists exercise “wisdom” way beyond their age when dealing with others. And, that’s not really a negative, but a wish that I might have shown such wisdom at that age instead of “acquiring” it the hard way.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent excellent time travel series. 17 May 2014
By Gloria Reiser - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Rarely ever do I reread a novel (so many books, so little time); however, I've enjoyed this series so much, I might just reread all five of them.

Others have more than adequately detailed the story line; I feel no need to repeat that. I can say that I thoroughly enjoyed the brief romp through a part of 1964. The life styles and mores of the time were accurately portrayed. And I feel that IF this series MUST end, this wrap up is a good one.

I am left with some dangling questions (tiny spoiler alert): How did Steve's life turn out? I sensed potential with him, to perhaps become much more than was exhibited at his last appearance. Did the new time stream alter Virginia's later life, and/or her cause of death? What was the true significance of 5/2 and 9/11 and all the Michael's and Katie's? Not to mention the original intent of the special mirror Grandpa Michael had built. Did he know/intend it to be a time portal? I suppose I will never know.

The writing is excellent and I eagerly await the launch of John Heldt's next series!

5.0 out of 5 stars READ IT! 31 May 2014
By Mtngal - Published on

The previous reviews tell enough about the plot of this book, so I just would like to share my thoughts about why I like the book. Although each of John Heldt’s books can stand alone, it really enhances one’s understanding and enjoyment to read the others in the Northwest Passage series first. All of them have romance, but involve time-travel, so, of course, one has to suspend belief to delve into the story. The characters in each book have some relation to the characters in the other books, and that adds to the appreciation of the characters. Time traveling brings us into another place and time, and Mr. Heldt did his research, bringing the culture of that period to life again. If the reader has either lived in that location or has lived through those years, it brings back memories and stimulates the imagination. Or we learn more about a different era. Good characters help us view the human condition from different perspectives. Time travel necessarily brings up dilemmas, both situational and moral. So the reflective reader may often ask, not only, what will that character do, but what would I have done? What are the possible consequences of these decisions? Because I had read the other books in the series I thought I could guess the ending. But, I was surprised! All in all, I have really enjoyed these books and John’s writing style. One last thing—some of his creative metaphors and similes make me laugh out loud! Good work, John Heldt. Are you going to start a new series? I look forward to more!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fitting finish to a wonderful series. 23 March 2014
By Jim Morgan - Published on

I have enjoyed John's novel from the beginning. I found The Mirror to be an excellent conclusion to the series. As always I found the characters to be very believable and easy to like. Growing up in the 60's I enjoyed the accurate historical references. The plot was easy to get lost in and as always a very interesting ending. Thanks John for the many hours of enjoyable reading. I look forward to the next series. :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun read ~ Time travel historical romance 11 March 2014
By Ann Gram - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
John Heldt excels in his chosen genre. I enjoyed reading about the characters' excursion back in time. In fact, I think this story, and perhaps his earlier stories as well, would work well in film. Anybody out there wanna take on a screenwriting project? Well, for the time being, let the silver screen be inside your mind as you delve into another fun, yet sometimes serious, time travel story that examines family bonds and historical events and attitudes in 1964.
