Book Summary of The Stranger in the Mirror

'I looked in the mirror one morning, and saw the face of a stranger. Who was she, this haggard, bun-faced woman with the softening jawline, the downturned mouth, the world- weary air of a woman who hasn't had what she wanted from life, and knows she isn't going to get it now? Why, it was no one else but me, myself and I.'

Middle age took Jane Shilling by surprise. She hadn't seen it coming, and she certainly wasn't ready for it. Living a flawed, bittersweet version of the idyll she dreamed of in her twenties, in a tumbledown urban cottage by the Thames, with a son, a cat and a horse in a livery fifty miles away, she wondered whether middle age was the beginning of the end. Or was there one last great adventure to be had? The Stranger in the Mirror is one woman's attempt to understand what middle age means for her and whether, as a new generation of women turns fifty, a revolution is under way. It definitely won't reverse the signs of ageing - but it will make you laugh, it will make you think and it could just make you look in the mirror in a slightly different way...

About the Author
Jane Shilling writes on books for the Daily Telegraph, Sunday Telegraph and Daily Mail, and on television for the Evening Standard. Her first book was The Fox in the Cupboard, a critically acclaimed memoir about her mid-life love affair with fox-hunting. She lives in Greenwich with her son.

Patricia April 14, 2013 review from Goodreads

Self indulgent piffle. I rarely give up on a book but this one defeated me. Very boring and blandly written. Give this one a body-swerve.

Sarah September 18, 2011 review from Goodreads

Quite intelligent musings on middle age for women. I dip in and out of this book inbetween my preferred ficiton, the honesty is good for me.

Sarah April 16, 2013 review from Goodreads

An interesting read from a woman grappling with middle-age. Well written, it is an honest look at some of the mixed feelings including no small amount of anger and frustration connected with ageing from a woman (and mother's) perspective.
