It was at the back of her mind as she went through the routine of her day: breakfast with a now-irritable Roger, choosing a gown for the morning, practicing her music and Italian, a walk in the gardens with Hyacinthe and the puppies, reading the latest playbills and scandal sheets, perhaps something of a novel, or her books on architecture and history, changing her clothes for dinner, sitting through it knowing the charm Roger showed was only for his guests-once.

Through a Glass, Darkly. Mrs Lightfoot lifted her eyes again – colourless eyes bright as glass. Like glass, they seemed to shine by reflection, as if there were no beam of living light within

My mom has been looking for this book for over 50 years, because she couldn't remember the title... We finally figured out what it was, and now she's very happy that her search is over! lol I'm happy you had it to sell! :)

Bought for my sister, who had read this in high school (1960's) and wanted to read it again. She is very happy!

Kathleen Norris really shows in this work that she was an extremely forward thinking writer, well ahead of her time. She was an author who wrote novels about strong women meeting big challenges. That being said, both of the mothers in this book were complete nightmares!!!

This is a two part book about reincarnation, though I don't know that they called it that back when this book was written. The first part is about Cherry, a young woman living in a much more perfect world than we live in. It is a world that could easily be a modern suburb of today. A lot of thought went into what this world would be like with no wars, everyone doing their fair share and no one going hungry.

Cherry's story is told from Gil's point of view, a young doctor who has come into this world after losing his previous life in a war.

The second part of this book takes place in the Bronx, New York. It is the story of Shirley Plummer, who does not know any other life beyond the complete poverty into which she was born. From the age of six months on, Shirley's mom, Millie has left her alone in their tiny apartment a great deal of the time so that she could go out partying. Today that kind of neglect would land someone in jail! Regarding her three marriages, the feeling was that "Having satisfied convention to this extent, Millie had regarded her respectability as established, and dealt now with casual affairs in a purely financial spirit. " An interesting spin on the fact that Millie was a prostitute.

This part of the book is told completely from Shirley's point of view, from the time she was a toddler on through her early 20's. The theme of reincarnation is not as much a part of her story, though it is noted that she makes strange comments occasionally. Shirley's story is beautifully told and I can't recommend this book enough. Hopefully it will be available at some point through Project Gutenberg as many of Kathleen Norris's other works are. It is available to check out online at OpenLibrary.org to read for free on your computer or Ipad. I love Shirley's story!
