a must read.

In her debut offering, THESE SHOES HURT MY FEET author Shelly L. Brooks compares two hot topics among women, shoes and relationships. Let’s face it most women love shoes and will rock a hot pair of shoes no matter how much pain they may inflict. They do the same with relationships. Some w omen will hold on to toxic relationships, despite the hurt they encounter. Brooks takes the various shoes and uses them as an analogy for the various types of relationships women encounter. Each shoe is described in great detail. The author makes each story personal by including several anecdotes and real life experiences that she has encountered or known of. Each chapter ends with a checklist of characteristics describing the pros and cons of the shoe/relationship and allows for readers to take an introspective look as to why they may have been in that type of relationship. The latter section of the book deals with the ultimate shoe, the one that everyone seeks, but only a few elusive couples are able to find.


Shelly L. Brooks has created a rare gem of a book - part self help, part educational, the work is thought provoking and very inspirational.

The book is extremely clear and concise, providing a wealth of information in down to Earth, related way. When reading this book one can’t help but recognize themselves or people that they know in each of the stories. This reader often found myself laughing, crying, or simply nodding my head in agreement. Many may believe that this is a book solely for women, but men will be able to appreciate what type of shoe they may be and can take stock of who they are and use that knowledge as a tool for growth. THESE SHOES HURT MY FEET is a must read, not just once but many times. I have found myself constantly using it as a reference. This is NOT a book for sharing, do yourself a favor and get your own. I eagerly await future works from this up and coming author.
