Eternally stubborn and fiercely independent Miss Geneva, the crotchety but lovable matriarch of one of the founding families of a small town in North Carolina, refuses to move into an assisted living facility. Her family persists, concerned and smothering, until she relents and hires a live-in caretaker. Carolina is years younger and decades less experienced than Miss Geneva, but armed with an old soul and a tattoo on her foot, she forges a profound connection with the woman and her family.

Stories of teen and middle-aged romance pepper this warm tale of family, love, and the joys and heartaches of growing old. At turns funny and heartbreaking, with a constant undercurrent of love, Blue Shoes and Tattoos will keep you turning pages until the very end.
