“Someone Else’s Shoes” Book storyline felt a bit lengthy and stretched out, but the ending made it worthwhile. Would have rated it 4 stars, but the lovely twist bumped it up to 4.5. Despite being an easy read, I enjoyed the characters and found the book to be a pleasant experience. Easily Recommended especially for the audiobook ( First I Read Myself but one another go with Audiobook I think the long story of the book perfectly experienced with audio version)
Description of the Book:
Someone Else’s Shoes Book Synopsis:
A story of mix-ups, mess-ups and making the most of second chances, this is the new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jojo Moyes, author of Me Before You and The Giver of Stars.
Who are you when you are forced to walk in someone else’s shoes?
Nisha Cantor lives the globetrotting life of the seriously wealthy, until her husband announces a divorce and cuts her off. Nisha is determined to hang onto her glamorous life. But in the meantime, she must scramble to cope–she doesn’t even have the shoes she was, until a moment ago, standing in.
That’s because Sam Kemp – in the bleakest point of her life – has accidentally taken Nisha’s gym bag. But Sam hardly has time to worry about a lost gym bag–she’s struggling to keep herself and her family afloat. When she tries on Nisha’s six-inch high Christian Louboutin red crocodile shoes, the resulting jolt of confidence that makes her realize something must change—and that thing is herself.
Full of Jojo Moyes’ signature humor, brilliant storytelling, and warmth, Someone Else’s Shoes is a story about how just one little thing can suddenly change everything.

Strength is being in that terrible room hour after hour even though every cell in your body is telling you it’s too much for you to cope with.”

“You have self-respect. You have friends. You have satisfaction every day, of a job well done. You have agency over your own life. These are not small things.”
