Tunnel of Mirrors, Ferne Arfin’s debut novel, began 2023 with a bang. As the last year ended, Reedsy Discovery, a US book review website and blog, named it one of its best indie books of 2022. Here’s what they said:
“Ferne Arfin’s literary fiction novel, Tunnel of Mirrors follows two outcasts, a spirited young Jewish woman and a charming Irishman, as they unexpectedly fall in love. Arfin’s poetic writing style perfectly suits this wistful tale that brims with beauty and the promise of new beginnings.”

Almost at once, interest in the novel on Amazon started growing. It quickly rose in the sales ranking in its category. By the very next day, it had jumped from a rank somewhere in the thousands to #45. For the rest of January, it has flirted with the top 100 books in the category Gothic&Romantic Literary Criticism, climbing into the top 100 several times. That category, frankly, had us scratching our heads until we realised that Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte were in the same category, as is Margaret Atwood from time to time.
