The character, Jacob, enjoys his job and he has great friends, but everyday he comes home to turmoil and dark thoughts.
Like Jacob, we ask ourselves, “Does the average person obtain peace in life?”
HOW CAN PEACE COME OUT OF CHAOS?
In Mirrors the reader is challenged by questions and observations of the characters’ lives. Emotional issues such as codependency and addiction are recognized as unhealthy behaviors. Basic emotional concepts revealed through the characters may help mirror aspects in your own life. As the reader identifies with the characters they will have the opportunity to reflect on issues in their own experiences.
Identification with these reflections make Mirrors a different kind of self-improvement book. Through self-examination hopefully the reader can catch a glimpse in the mirror and see a healthier future of greater peace and joy in life.
