This review is from: Shiny Green Shoes (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed reading this short story by Dana Taylor. I've just recently purchased a Kindle, and discovered her story listed in a Kindle thread on Kindleboards.com. Taking a chance on a newer author, I was drawn back into Depression Era America.
An actress, Mazie McDonald, finds herself reflecting on how as a child, she befriends the spinster-like Aunt Peach. Mazie quickly becomes the confident and salvation for her, and their friendship draws Aunt Peach out of her self-imposed imprisonment within her home. On the whim of following her dream, Mazie finds that the path to having the green shoes she's been dreaming about isn't always easy for a young, colored girl of the 1930s. But with determination and Aunt Peach's help, they both learn that sometimes instilling hope in others makes everyone's dreams come true .
I would recommend this short story for anyone who would like a good holiday story to enjoy while traveling or simply spending quiet time with the family.
