THE MAGIC MIRROR, by Susan Hill Long


The story: Margaret has always been the orphan girl with a crippled foot. Her future isn’t exactly rosy, but it takes a turn for the worse on the day her caregiver, Minka, makes a deal to marry her off to the local hunchback. But that’s also the day Margaret trades her crutch for a magic mirror and gets far more than she bargained for: what she sees in the mirror sends her on a journey that helps her find adventure, love, and even a most unexpected family–as well as a squirrel that picks pockets. She certainly never saw that coming!


Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If you like a story that reads like a fairy tale, complete with happy ending, this one’s for you!
