Steele takes the reader on a journey of both laughter and tears while learning even the smallest of gestures can make a significant and lasting impact.

Shoes On The Stairs

Claire Blackwell can’t find that damn white light. Thanks to a mishap at an intersection, she’s dead and stuck somewhere between Heaven and what seems like Hell as she is forced to watch her husband and children unravel without her. While she struggles to find answers for her limbo state, her family begins to see her ghost, offering what she believes, is a gift of second chances.

 

As she navigates through this new, untouchable world and the challenges it creates, she is forced to face some sad and potentially dangerous truths. Determined, she works to mend her relationship with her family, but her stubborn teenage son refuses to acknowledge her, and when tensions escalate with his long-time bully, her inability to control the physical world around her leaves her fearing for her family’s safety. With her time running out, she must find a way to save them before the progress she has made is lost and she fades from this world forever.

5.0 out of 5 starsAmazing Touching Tale! Huge 5 Stars!

July 28, 2019

Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase

 

Amazing tale and definitely deserving of 5 stars! I truly loved this story and really felt the pain and sorrow that Claire was going through. Really a unique look at the after-life and what might happen if one does not go on but hangs around, yet still can't truly touch their family; however, Claire soon does start interacting with them and although she knows she can't "Be" with them she is with them in a sense and it's phenomenal how the author gives us this angle. This is my first book by Ms. Steele and I must say I am now a true fan and will be definitely getting more of her books. I would highly recommend this book if you're looking for a really deep, feel-good book.

4.0 out of 5 starsUplifting story with a lesson!

July 29, 2019

Format: Kindle Edition

 

A well crafted and well written story! As it began, I kept hoping what appeared to be happening, wasn't, but it did. (You'll have to read it to understand!). The story is compelling and uplifting. While there were plenty of times when I found I had sand in my eyes (must have been a sandstorm in my living room!), it was a happy read. I enjoyed Claire's release of her worldly cares and loving understanding that her family needed to move on. The story touched me; all of us who are parents have found ourselves in Claire's shoes, juggling schedules and trying to maximize the efficient use of time, forgetting why we're really here. As I read, I found myself letting go of some of those "things" that keep me from being in the moment with my teenager. When I finished, I went upstairs to her room and hugged her. Ms. Steele has crafted a sweet fable that gets her points across in a meaningful, but almost subliminal way. I applaud her! I also recommend this book, not just for parents, but for people who care about other people.

5.0 out of 5 starsA real page turner

July 18, 2019

Format: Hardcover

 

This is a novel about death and the impact it has on a typical, middle-class family, but the writer gives the material a devilish, entertaining, and original spin. This is a page turner from page one. Over three nights, I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen next. You’ll recognize the football star who happens to be a horrible bully. And the pompous principal, eager to protect his players from any scandal. And the victims —a sister and brother— who love and hate each other at the same time. Sibling rivalry at its normal. What makes this tale of San Diego life particularly unique, however, is its ghost, whose acute observations give us clever insight into the problems her family faces every day. I especially loved Claire’s sense of humor. Her vivid take on people she thought she understood when she was alive and now sees them from a strange, physical, surreal perspective, and though the villainy gets a bit much later in the story, as the family finds itself in bigger trouble, I was rooting for them all the way, hoping Edward and Ivy and Jazzy would survive the crazy mess they’re in. An entertaining and ultimately inspiring tale of bullying and jealousy and rage, very relevant to what we see at our schools and watch on our TV sets.
