Salt to the Sea - Ruta Sepetys

“The shoes always tell the story,” said the shoe poet.

 

“Not always,” I countered.

 

“Yes, always. Your boots, they are expensive, well made. That tells me that you come from a wealthy family. But the style is one made for an older woman. That tells me they probably belonged to your mother. A mother sacrificed her boots for her daughter. That tells me you are loved, my dear. And your mother is not here, so that tells me that you are sad, my dear. The shoes tell the story.

 

I have a strong feeling this book is going to end in an ugly cry.
