Our Review

Reviewed by Gitte

I absolutely loved this book! I couldn’t and didn’t want to put it down. It is so well written and the characters make such an impression on you that you need to know how their journey ends.

It was an emotional and beautiful ride that packed “a punch” with its message through a heart-breaking and poignant story of domestic abuse, alcohol abuse, teen pregnancy, drug abuse, suicide and how to accept the love that is meant for you. So to say this story is emotional, well that may be an underestimation.  The dialogue was honest, real, fast paced and at times very funny.  There are complex characters in abundance, a scrumptious and frankly amazing hero; Jeremiah and of course our Harley a sweet yet tough and determined heroine.

I have to say the romance between Harley and Jeremiah (Miah) melted my heart. They started off as childhood friends and Miah would do anything for his Harley girl, he was her everything; he was her soul mate. Their journey was so intense, real and emotional and I fell in complete love with Miah. The man had the patience of a saint!

This story sees Harley, who has lived through a frightening and unsettled childhood; struggle to find that all important meaning of what her place is in the world; the thing she was meant to do with her life. This constant struggle of searching for what she was born to be is really quite heart breaking, I wanted to shake her and make her open her eyes and not miss what she had right in front of her. However, she needed to knock through the wall she had built around herself, all in her own good time. Harley’s journey is not pretty and dressed up; it is raw, gritty and at times downright frustrating. Yet it came across as real and believable. Harley showed strength and determination in her conviction albeit it misguided at times.

She got there, whilst wearing the boots her Mother gave her.

Synopsis

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to walk through life in someone else’s shoes?

Strong-willed tomboy Harley LeBeau puts you in the boots her mother gave her, as she takes you along her journey of escape from an abusive childhood and the desire to find herself as she comes of age. Made to feel a burden to her father simply by her gender, Harley is determined to prove her worth and independence, leaving the small town she grew up in and the one boy who gave her a soft place to fall, Jeremiah Johnson. Torn between saving herself and abandoning her mother and younger sister, Harley chooses her own life in hopes they will choose theirs, too.

A mature, candid read for everyone. A must for women. The Boots My Mother Gave Me explores the dynamics of abuse and dysfunction, the courage to overcome, the strength in sisterhood, and the ongoing conflict and unconditional love between mothers and daughters.

Climb into Charlene the Chevelle for a fast-paced story about a girl who is tough enough to survive and tender enough to learn to trust in love.
