An artist, a grandmother, a painting, and an art gallery: mix them together and you have a recipe for some exceptional, inspirational, and flavor some soul food. When Harriet entered through the glass door of a local art gallery, little did she know that the fabric of her being would soon change dramatically. Harriet, a successful business woman, is mysteriously drawn to the red shoes that are in a painting she discovers in the gallery. The woman's fixation with the shoes surprisingly transports her into a world of metaphors, which consistently, and patiently, knock on her door of inner truth. But will she answer? Through the art of storytelling by the artist, Harriet vicariously experiences the bands of truth that stem from other individuals, like herself, that also connected strongly with the painting. Their stories (based on the images in the painting) mirror truths in her life. As the artist shares tale after colorful tale, Harriet struggles internally with her own emotional war on life, love, and happiness. Here's an idea: Light a candle, get a drink, get comfortable, and get ready for a magical whirl on an emotional, sensual, and spiritual ride of unearthly proportions. The Red Shoes are walking your way! A review: 'Visually rich and captivating, The Red Shoes is a multi-layered emotionally rewarding read. The author both leads and challenges us to participate in the journey her characters take as they become one with the painting, The Red Shoes. Cutting across generations to basic truths about men, women, relationships, and the world in which we live, this is a book to cherish and share'.
