Debjeet Mukherjee-Readers' Favorite Five Star Review

A touching drama that tackles its sensitive subject matter very well, this is a story in which a young girl deals with the tragedy and trauma of losing her father when she was four years old. Trapped between her past and her future, we follow Violet closely through her emotional journey to the discovery of the titular shoe box in the attic. Author Robert M. Moores has crafted a beautiful and emotionally intelligent work that deals with grief and loss in a caring fashion. One of the things which most impressed me about this story was its commitment to character and close narrative style, which not only gives us an accurate portrayal of the thoughts and feelings of the young heroine, but also a highly relatable account of how trauma and loss can haunt us from our youth.


I love the way this book is written. From the beginning, it takes you on a journey with a young girl, Violet.It is one of those books when you start reading, you won't put down until you finish it.It's a very captivating story and I love how Violet's emotions are so well described. I could also see this made as a movie! Recommended!
