When Ann Carbine marries Larry Best in the Salt Lake temple in 1961, she's certain their marriage will last forever. Eleven years later, she learns that he's been having affairs with men. She wants to help him. She wants to save their marriage. However, powerful emotions pull Larry away from his family, just as AIDS begins its relentless march through the gay community. As a single parent, Ann is faced with four grieving children who don't want to leave their father and their home in Utah. But Ann needs to start a new life in a new place. In the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, she at last makes peace with the past. "Ann Carbine Best portrays herself, and those who shared her journey, with unflinching honesty. That's no easy task for the memoirist. Her paucity of description and her generous use of dialogue keep the story moving. In the Mirror is a must-read for anyone who thinks they can't handle what life offers." Diane Marcou, The Smuggler's Ghost
