…And we are off on another romantic journey to the past that proves love knows no boundaries, not even time itself. The Mirror by John Heldt seems to put the final bow on Northwest Passage series with a few loops and knots that change up the field a little while keeping the feeling of love and warm romance alive.

Before we go back in time, Mr. Heldt takes us forward, to 2020 when the twin daughters of Joel and Grace, (other time travelers from previous books) are celebrating their nineteenth birt

This is a novel that continues a story found in earlier books of the series. I enjoyed remembering some of the characters from that one and the progression of their lives. It becomes challenging to go along with the author when it comes to the movement in time and how it affects those doing the traveling. The story of what takes place whilst the characters are in the past seems to be one that would be more appealing to teens or young adults. As such, this novel has something for all different ki ...more

I really enjoyed this book

I really enjoyed this book. Twins Katie and Ginny travel back in time 56 years and have to settle into 1964 with no support system and different cultural expectations. Rated PG

Each Book Is Better than the Last!

The story of Ginny and Katie's amazing trip to 1964 is such a trip for a baby-boomer!!! And John Heldt makes you feel like you are there once again!

Heldt makes it all seem so plausible and real... A wonderful ride!

I have been getting a lot of review requests lately but have found myself skipping over most (at least for now). But when I saw the description for The Mirror by John Heldt I immediately said yes.

The Mirror is a stand alone book in the Northwest Passage series. Ginny and twin sister Katie Smith were born on September 11, 2001. It is now September 11, 2020 and they are celebrating their 19th birthday at a fair in Seattle. They have a great time till they encounter a strange fortune teller. Ignori

I have to say that I almost wanted to not open this book. Not because I wasn’t looking forward to it but because I knew that this was the last book that had been published. I didn’t want to read it and then find myself wishing it could go on forever when it came to an end. But I couldn’t help it. I just had to know what happened.

Like the previous books things are different in The Mirror. Nothing is really the same except that some of the characters remain as old friends. While they’re not the

When Ginny and twin sister Katie ignore the warnings of a carnival fortune-teller and enter a house of mirrors, they find themselves time-traveling back to the 1960’s. Exiting into a *very* different world, they use their wits to survive. Along the way, they meet their great-grandmother, experience some serious culture shock, and even find love.

“Two time travelers with knowledge of the future could make a big difference in this world – or make a big mess.”

Quick and easy read with some fun nostalgia thrown in for good measure! This story is about 19 year old twin girls who travel through time from the year 2020 to the year 1964. The pop culture references -- popular music (The Beatles, for example) cars, hairstyles, slang -- as well as the current events of the time (dealing with the aftermath of the Kennedy assassination and U.S. involvement in Vietnam) were really interesting for someone who grew up in that era.

Journey into the past.
This was the second time-travel book I'd listened to by this author, unfortunately from two different series. I preferred The Mirror (Northwest passage 05) to Class of '59 (American Journey 04), mainly because it was less confusing in the early chapters. I also favoured the narrator of The Mirror.

Ginny and Katie Smith, nineteen year old twins, have come from a family of time-travellers, and while they never expected to find themselves in another time, they seemed to have so

The Mirror is the fifth book in the Northwest Passage series and sequel to The Mine and The Show.
The first John A Heldt book I read was The Mine, also the first book in this series. Not being a sci fi fan I was reluctant to accept the request for a review, but I was seriously hooked on this author from the start.
Like his other books I was drawn into the story from the first page of The Mirror. Heldt does not write your average time travel science fiction. He writes adventure, romance and histor

Nice ending

I don't know if there are more books planned in this series but, if not, this is a fine place to stop. Each book has explored time travel a little differently but none of them relied on science - just some sort of strange occurrence that could sometimes be predictable. But the stories were cute in a young adult kind of way.

Great Book!

I loved reading this book,once I started I couldn't stop till I had finished it! The only regret I've got is not having more on what happens with mirror that was made and sold.I was hoping that the family would get it then more time travel would continue. I hope the author writes another book on "The Mirror".

The Mirror

In all the Time Travel Romance books I have read this one tops them all. It is funny, heart rending, entertaining. In fact I couldn't put it down once I started reading. Love it.

Shelves: sci-fi
I have read several of John Heldt's books and found all of them enjoyable. This is the exception. I slogged through this sexist stereotypical fluff. The Chara tears are co fusing because they just aren't all that well developed. The story is dull. I wish I would have read something else.

This is exactly what you'd expect from a free time travel book about teenage girls written by a middle-aged man.

It was entertaining, but a bit slow for me. The were a lot of characters in this book. Maybe if I read the other books before this I might have liked it more.

Now this is the type of series where you can jump into any one of The story's. And your not lost because it starts with different generations.

This story is about Ginny & Kate, Joel and Grace's children who go back in time at a fair and meet their "loves". One of them falls in love and becomes pregnant while the other falls in love but doesn't act on it. They meet their grandmother while they are back in time and she helps them out.

I have to say that throughout all of these books, the characters are very selfish and none of them seem to have any idea what love is. They seem to fall in love with whoever is placed in front of them at

If you're a fan of science fiction dealing with time travel woven together with a touch of romance, history and a bit of mystery, you might just want to pick up John Heldt's Northwest Passage Time Travel Series.

John A. Heldt gave me an e-copy of The Mirror because I enjoyed The Mine and The Show so much.
He did not ask for a review, but I'm going to anyway.

John Heldt immediately joined my list of Indie authors who deserve more attention by publishing houses when I had the pleasure of reading his first book in the series, The Mine . Another of those authors who make me glad I was introduced to indie books.

Kind of bittersweet today, The Mirror is the fifth and last installment (as far as I know), in the N
