When 17-year-old Alma Jean finds her mother dead, she must pack up her life and move in with her mother's ex-lover, a woman she doesn't know. Her new guardian, Bird Wilson, is the town pariah and unused to sharing her home. Will mourning the death of a shared loved one bring Alma Jean and Bird together or push them further apart? Set in the sleepy Mississippi town of Etheridge in the summer of 1960, MIRRORS depicts the lives of three African-American women bound by love and loss and family, and the secrets of their shared past.
