If you’re familiar with our Bristol Vintage blog then you’ll know Sarah Baker, even if you didn’t realise!  Sarah interviewed and wrote about all the lovely people who’ve featured on Bristol Vintage over the last few years, whether on the blog or at the Wedding Fair. Now Sarah’s got a bit of news about her very own book!

You see when she’s not writing for Bristol Vintage, Sarah’s been writing a children’s book for 8-12 year olds. It’s called Through the Mirror Door and here’s a little bit about it:

Since the accident, Angela has been alone. When she is invited on holiday with her cousins, it is her chance to be part of a family again if she promises to behave herself. But secrets lie in the walls of the crumbling French holiday home and the forbidden rooms draw Angela in. Soon night-time footsteps, flickering candlelight and shadows in windows lead her to a boy who needs her help. To save him Angela must discover the truth about what happened in the house all those years ago . . . and face the terrible secret of her own past.

We love the cover and we’re thrilled for Sarah, especially as she’s combined her two passions (writing & vintage). The main character, Angela, is a big fan of vintage clothes and she even makes her own; that’s a girl after our own hearts.

I’ve always been an avid reader and, with her interest in children’s fiction, Sarah introduced me to lots of books I wouldn’t ordinarily have looked at, including Harry Potter and The Hunger Games, and now I can’t wait for my first peek of her very own book!

So if you love middle grade books or have kids who’d love a timeslip adventure with plenty of mystery, some spooky goings on and a fair amount of sewing, Through the Mirror Door is out on 7th July.

You can connect with and find out more about SARAH BAKER in the following places:

Happy Reading and don’t forget to let us know what you think of the book!

  1. The food and service at this place were spectacular. I was at an amazing event here recently. The event was outdoors along the water and against a beautiful sunset. As the party moved indoors of Los angeles wedding venues, I was struck by the decor.
