Overview

Fiona is a gifted violinist who plays her music in the town park before crowds of delighted listeners. The people sway, they dance, they smile, and they often weep when Fiona runs her bow across the strings of her violin because her music so enchants them!
Though Fiona is loved by her humble audience, she dreams of leaving the town and traveling the world with her little dog Myrna, there to play her violin in grand music halls, where wealthy fans will throw roses at her feet.
Hubert Minkle is a talented silversmith who would give all he owns to make Fiona happy-but he is too bashful to even speak to her. He spends his days in a charming shop creating beautiful jewelry with glittering silver filigree, and wishing he could tell Fiona how he feels about her.
One day, Hubert realizes that he might be able to help Fiona become a famous violinist, but can he bring himself to offer her that one extraordinary gift which will allow her to leave the town-and Hubert-forever?

'The Filigree Slippers appeals to young people's best emotions. My grandkids were clearly touched and inspired by it. It's an endearing story.'
-Virgil Jose, Author of The Examined Life, a Gil Rodrigues Mystery
