Details about The Stranger in the Mirror by Liv Constantine
The Stranger in the Mirror by Liv Constantine ePub PDF download – We’re celebrating my engagement on this beautiful September day, and I’m surrounded by people who say they love me, but who is it really that they love? How can you truly know someone when their entire past is a mystery? Gabriel, my fiancé, is sitting next to me, looking at me in an adoring way that makes me feel warm all over. He’s one of those people whose eyes smile, and you can’t help but feel good when he’s around. He is the one who is helping me discover the parts of myself that feel authentic. I take pictures. Gabriel tells me that I’m an amazing talent. I don’t know if I’d go that far, but I love doing it.
When I’m behind the camera, I’m me again. I know instinctively that this is something I’ve done and loved doing for a long time. It’s the thing that has saved me, given me a living, and led me to Gabriel. He’s actually giving me my first break—a show at his family’s gallery—in October. Soon, they’ll be my family too. The clinking of a glass gets my attention. It’s Patrick, Gabriel’s best man. “As you all know, this clown and I have been friends since we were six. I could stand here all day and tell you stories. But since both our sets of parents are present, I’ll spare you the gory details and just say that we’ve had our share of good times and laughs, and our share of trouble. I never thought he’d settle down, but the minute I saw him with Addison, I knew he was a goner.” Patrick lifts his glass toward us both. “To Addy and Gabriel. Long life!”
