The Silver Shoes

The Silver ShoesThe Silver Shoes by Jill G. Hall

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Two women, separated by two coasts and almost ten decades, looking for love and independence.

During one of her romantic visits to New York, Anne McFarland comes upon a pair of rhinestone shoes in an antique shop. Mesmerized by the unique shoes, Anne unable to say no to a new purchase. Once at home, our leading young lady opens a box, and besides the beautiful and shiny shoes, she finds a few more interesting items in the box that draws her attention to its original owner.

And that’s the part when Clair Deveraux makes her grand entrance to the story. The young debutant is about to make her official appearance to the wealthy New York society, after the successful event, she receives a marriage proposal, which she very much like to refuse. Clair sees a much different future in front of her, which includes further education instead of arranged marriage.

The future changes quickly, and Clair & Anne must very carefully choose the next steps that will lead them to their goals.

Loved Clair’s story, her fight for freedom, and the future only she could build by being honest, determined, and open to all kinds of opportunities no matter how difficult those were. Great character, definitely someone to admire. On the other hand, I found Anne’s character needy and whiny. Looked like all her focus was on getting a shiny ring on her finger to match her newfound rhinestone shoes.
