Today, I’m proud to present to you River Maria Urke, founder & editor of The River Journal, poet, artist, and author of a new collection A Woman’s Obsession with Shoes
Real life Stories!
A woman’s love for shoes has no boundaries. Million’s of women from all lifestyles and ages, crossing borders around the globe, care not of the necessity of shoes as much as they care of the aesthetic quality of them. If you are not one of those women, I am sure you know someone who is crazed about shoes. Either way, Women’s Obsession with Shoes is a book about life told through the words of women and a pair of shoes. A book of memoirs women will relate to or will be entertained by.
Women’s Obsession with Shoes is a collection of memoirs by women telling their stories through a pair of shoes. The stories range from a lost pair of moccasins at a Pow Wow to a six-foot woman making a claim on a man’s chest in stiletto boots. They will take you to China where laughter carries cross-culturally and back to the 1970’s America in a sticky situation.Every story is told in the woman’s voice as if you were sitting next to her while she told the story. Some of the stories will spark memories while others will be entertaining in their own way.
