This was a great story. Willow has thrown herself into her job and doesn’t have much of a personal life. She purchases a magical pair of shoes secondhand that make her look and feel more attractive. Her former step-daughter shows up pregnant. She wants to stay with Willow. Willow is forced to confront and make peace with the past.
I love watching Willow’s character grow and develop in this book. It had a great message about not letting the past define you, but not burying it either. This was a heartwarming story, although it definitely discussed some serious topics as well.
