Blima Weisstuch is an ordinary woman who works in a bakery in a small town in Poland. But when the worst happens and she is suddenly torn from her family and everything she knows, Blima is swept up in the horrors which we have come to know as the Holocaust, and the impact of this heartbreaking and catastrophic event not only transforms her life, but generations to come. My Mother’s Shoes is a moving memoir which spans over fifty years, depicting the unbreakable bonds between a mother and daughter living in Brooklyn after the mother flees from the ashes of the Holocaust. The novel expands upon the successful The Story of Blima—A Holocaust Survivor, and answers the question of what happens to Blima when she forges a new life. This riveting, beautifully written memoir alternates the voices of Blima, her American alter-ego, Betty, and her daughter, Shirley. Ultimately, My Mother’s Shoes conveys the resilience of the human spirit and is a testimony to the power of family.

I met the Author at a writers workshop. She was very nice and I just had to buy her book. The book is amazing!!!! I stayed up all night to finish the book. It was such a good read. Thank you Ms Wachtel for sharing your mom with us. She was an awesome woman. This is a book I will keep forget in my heart.

My Mother's Shoes is a compelling book and very good human interest story. This luring read exemplifies the triumph of goodness over evil. The story flows from past to present flawlessly with constant reminders of great inner strength and conviction of character.

It particularly captured my interest and motivated me to read on as the style is unique. I now feel as if I know Blima to a small degree, after the author has invited me into the very personal life of this most wonderful woman.

Everyone should put this book on their 2012 to read list. I look forward with great anticipation to Ms. Wachtel's next literary undertaking.

I met this very talented writer (well, actually for the second time) at a college book signing (where she works) and was the first in line to get her autograph. The book is written from 3 different perspectives from 3 strong ladies. I don't want to give away too much--- please buy the book. This time I was SATISFIED SAL.
