Sensible Shoes by Sharon Garlough Brown


Brown tells a fictional story of 4 women who are all at a different intersection of their life. All four are faced with the internal struggle of choosing to let the past control them or embrace the redemption and new life Christ has to offer them.

Meg has found herself alone in her mother’s house mourning the loss of her mother and husband’s death after her daughter departs to go overseas to college. She is left living with the ghosts of her pasts and deciding if it is time to sell her home and put those ghosts to rest or continue to live in the comfortable present.  

Hannah, a church minister, has devoted her life to Christ and serving other’s in His name. She gave up everything to serve God including the idea of marriage and children. After being forced into a 9 month sabbatical by her lead pastor she has to face the loss of her entire identity and everything her life stood for….and all the pain her life represents.  

Mara has forever been the rejected child. Rejected by her family, her husband, her sons and her peers. All she has ever longed for is acceptance and to become one of the popular girls in school…or at least let them feel the pain she felt every time they made fun of her. Can she ever find it in her heart to accept herself if no one can?

Charissa lived her life making all the right choices. She was raised in the right family with the right social connections. She went to the right college and married the right man. Everything in her life was perfectly planned and she always had the right answer to anything she had to face. Until the day she was faced with not having the answers to her biggest fear and the one thing she did not want to be….becoming a mother. Can she find it in her heart to walk in the role she has been called to?

All four women are called into the journey of facing their past and the current circumstances they find themselves in. What will each of them chose and will God really help them to accept where their lives are headed despite their past?

This is a quick easy read and would give it a 3.5 out of 5 ⭐️
