Loved this book! Small town (or church in this case), big hell. Especially when dealing with not-so-holy family and church members. Leona has to find her way through the biggest crisis of her life, and realizes that God has had her back all along.

This author needs to study people more. The story stressed that the pastor's wife was a people pleaser and very unsure of herself. It turns out, however, that she successfully ran women's committee meetings, dinners and about everything else at the church. Then, after after her husband died, people told her that she shouldn't be so insecure (like people would have noticed that she was!), and she turned into a loud and rude person who told people exactly what she thought - which wasn't good. Even yelling matches when there was a houseful of church members. God, of course, approved and encouraged the new her. AS TO HER MOTHER A more rude, selfish and hateful person you would ever hope to meet. To everybody. Mature (older) wealthy women do not forget who they are and act with dignity - at least, in public and in Alabama. Never would she scream hateful things at her daughter and threaten violence in a crowd of people. ROXIE's calling Leona 'girlfriend" all of the time got to be old and annoying. She was a loud, hateful person, too. SO was the restaurant owner and the office worker. Not one person in the whole book acted like a Christian and sought peace. ALL in all, the book was a slam on Christianity. Churches do have conflicts amongst their members just like every group of people do. But, I have never, and hope to never, ever witnessed such a group as that one. GRAMMER is about average for this century's writers - poor with missing words that make sentences confusing. The book is confusing in places and contradictory in others. THE AUTHOR is a pastor's wife. Or, was. I wonder if she still is. I'M SORRY I PERSEVERED AND FINISHED THIS BOOK. I WILL NOT READ ANOTHER.

Alittle bit of...it's life. Being the good little preachers wife..doing what she can at the church, raising her children,to watch them walk away. Leona has her plate full when her husband dies it throws everyone for a tailspin. Will she stand the heat and come out as refined gold or will it be to much? I laughed, I cried. I thought about my own family. What if..? Could I really be as strong as I hope to be? The characters were easy for me to put a face to, I have been to church with many of them. I dont understand why everyone just ' looks' at the preachers wife..we are all human. We all make mistakes.We all should be good examples. I highly recommend this. Eye opener.

Lynne Gentry is a gifted storyteller, and I loved meeting the colorful characters she brings to life in Walking Shoes! Leona Harper is a lady you’ll not soon forget, and her story will make you laugh out loud and tug at your heartstrings in equal measure. Brimming with humor and hope, Walking Shoes is sure to leave readers begging for more Mt. Hope Southern Adventures!

A good question, asked by the author to conceive this story line. Most chapters are a little dry and boring.
