Serendipity’s Footsteps by Suzanne Nelson
Sometimes a necklace, or blanket, or even a pair of shoes can tell a story — a story of love, family, dreams, and heartbreak. In “Serendipity’s Footsteps”, you travel through time and learn about a single pair of shoes and their meaning.
This story features three special young women — Dalya, Ray and Pinny. Dalya’s world is torn apart as a young Jewish girl who is sent to a concentration camp. She leaves behind the things that she thinks matter the most to her. Ray and Pinny are both orphans on the run, both seeking more. Ray dreams of making it to New York City to attend Juilliard, and Pinny dreams of finding her mother again.
The author, Suzanne Nelson, does a superb job of bringing history alive. You feel as if you are transported back to Dayla’s era. I think there will be a great number of teens captivated by the special pair of shoes and the young women whose stories are woven into their legacy.
