Rebecca James unveils a chilling modern gothic novel of a family consumed by the shadows and secrets of its past in The Woman in the Mirror. For more than two centuries, Winterbourne Hall has stood atop a bluff overseeing the English countryside of Cornwall and the sea beyond. Enshrouded by fog and enveloped by howling winds, the imposing edifice casts a darkness over the town. In 1947, Londoner Alice Miller accepts a post as governess at Winterbourne, looking after twin children Constance and Edmund for their widower father, Captain Jonathan de Grey. Falling under the de Greys’ spell, Alice believes the family will heal her own past sorrows. But then the twins’ adoration becomes deceitful and taunting. Their father, ever distant, turns spiteful and cruel. The manor itself seems to lash out. Alice finds her surroundings subtly altered, her air slightly chilled. Something malicious resents her presence, something clouding her senses and threatening her very sanity. In present day New York, art gallery curator Rachel Wright has learned she is a descendant of the de Greys and heir to Winterbourne. Adopted as an infant, she never knew her birth parents or her lineage. At long last, Rachel will find answers to questions about her identity that have haunted her entire life. But what she finds in Cornwall is a devastating tragic legacy that has afflicted generations of de Greys. A legacy borne from greed and deceit, twisted by madness, and suffused with unrequited love and unequivocal rage. There is only one true mistress of Winterbourne. She will not tolerate any woman who dares to cross its threshold and call it home. Those who do will only find a reflection of their own wicked sins and an inherited vengeance.

This is an extensive study of the history and literature of Jungian psychology, especially in relation to women's psychology. Dr. Douglas shows how 20th century psychology viewed the feminine most often as "other," the shadow-realm for man's projections, for the uncanny, the ambiguous and the immature. She recovers heretofore forgotten theory and writers who hold a fairer and more healing view.
Instant International Bestseller "Ferociously entertaining. A novel like a triathlon: part evil-twin thriller, part howdunit (or did-she-do-it?), part juicy family drama. Drop Knives Out and Double Indemnity into the blender, shake some Dead Calm over the froth, power it on, and you’ve got a cocktail like The Girl in the Mirror—fresh, flavorful, and utterly intoxicating." —AJ Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window Written with the chilling, twisty suspense of The Wife Between Us and Something in the Water, a seductive debut thriller about greed, lust, secrets, and deadly lies involving identical twin sisters. Twin sisters Iris and Summer are startlingly alike, but beyond what the eye can see lies a darkness that sets them apart. Cynical and insecure, Iris has long been envious of Summer’s seemingly never-ending good fortune, including her perfect husband Adam. Called to Thailand to help her sister sail the family yacht to the Seychelles, Iris nurtures her own secret hopes for what might happen on the journey. But when she unexpectedly finds herself alone in the middle of the Indian Ocean, everything changes. When she makes it to land, Iris allows herself to be swept up by Adam, who assumes that she is Summer. Iris recklessly goes along with his mistake. Not only does she finally have the golden life she’s always envied, with her sister gone, she’s one step closer to the hundred-million-dollar inheritance left by her manipulative father. All Iris has to do is be the first of his seven children to produce an heir. Iris’s “new” life lurches between glamorous dream and paranoid nightmare. On the edge of being exposed, how far will she go to ensure no one discovers the truth? And just what did happen to Summer on that yacht? Only Iris knows . . .
Many women-regardless of income, size, shape, ethnicity, and age-are uncomfortable in their own skin. We fixate on our body image and try endless diets, implants, hair extensions, and new shoes, but it's never enough. The problem is that girls and women have been socialized to mistakenly conflate body esteem and self-esteem. Body esteem refers to how you think and feel about your physical appearance: your size, shape, hair, and features. Self-esteem refers to how you think and feel about your personality, your role in relationships, your accomplishments, and your values-everything that contributes to who you are as a person. The Woman in the Mirror goes beyond typical self-esteem books to dig deep into the origins of women's problems with body image. Psychologist Cynthia Bulik guides readers in the challenging task of disentangling self-esteem from body esteem, and taking charge of the insidious negative self-talk that started as early as when you first realized you didn't really look like a fairy princess. By reprogramming how we feel about ourselves and our bodies, we can practice healthy eating and sensible exercise, and focus on the many things we have to offer our family, community, and job. Bulik provides us the tools to reclaim our self-confidence and to respect and love who we are. Praise for Crave: "More than 7 million Americans struggle with binge eating disorder (BED) . . .

Before devoting her life to helping global victims of violent crimes and social injustice, author Evelyn Mejil was a survivor. Despite the challenges, she didn't allow her past to hold her back. Instead, she let it fuel her to push through and make a difference. In The Woman in the Mirror, she provides a vivid portrait of her courageous mind meeting her painful memories, her valiant heart overcoming her shameful unworthiness, and her bold spirit overpowering her relentless fear. In this account, Mejil shares an uncensored description of how she overcomes her past when she discovers an inconspicuous truth while traveling the world in search for answers to silence her nightmares and heal her pain. Hidden in the eyes of the woman reflected in the mirror, she sees the answers stood where she buried her painful past, and to find them there is only one journey left to take, a journey within. The Woman in the Mirror tells how once she goes beyond the memories and faces her demons, she finally discovers her true being and vividly recounts how her false self, the identity birthed in the lies of her past, collapses. Shattering the iron grip of her past, she heals and brings forth a new story. Mejil presents the unadulterated expression of her most powerful self, the authentic self.

Learning to Love the Woman in the Mirror is a raw and authentic recounting of my testimony from the bondage and shackles of a life lived trying to earn acceptance and prove my worth to the freedom I found when I placed my identity on who God says that I am and on what Jesus did for me. It's for every woman that has gotten stuck in the cycle of trying to earn acceptance or prove her worth. Every woman that has allowed the storms of life, past mistakes, or the shame of abuse to steal her joy, rob her of the freedom she has in Christ, or feed her lies until she looks in the mirror to see words like worthless, unloved, or ruined reflected back at her. It's these woman that I invite to come along on a journey with me as we learn to stop striving for acceptance and worth by acknowledging that God already bought our freedom and bestowed us with purpose and adoption through His son, Jesus. We do this by seeing ourselves through the eyes of Christ. Once you truly see yourself through Christ's eyes, there's no going back. His love propels you forward. He gives you the courage to live life loved, without fear, and full of God-given purpose. This is the story I want to share. The story of God's transforming power in my life and how knowing that I am a daughter of the King changed absolutely everything.
