Meet & Greet with Jill Hall Saturday August 18 2pm
Beach Books is excited to welcome author Jill Hall to the store August 18 at 2 pm. Jill will be meeting and greeting customers and chatting about her newest novel The Silver Shoes as well as talking about her creative process.
In The Silver Shoes, San Francisco artist Anne McFarland has been distracted by a cross-country romance with sexy Sergio and has veered from her creative path. While visiting him in New York, she buys a pair of rhinestone shoes in an antique shop that spark her imagination and lead her on a quest to learn more about the shoes’ original owner. Almost ninety years earlier, Clair Deveraux, a sheltered 1929 New York debutante, tries to reside within the bounds of polite society and please her father. But when she meets Winnie, a carefree Macy’s shop girl, Clair is lured into the steamy side of Manhattan—a place filled with speakeasies, flappers, and the beat of “that devil music”—and her true desires explode wide open. Secrets and lies heap up until her father loses everything in the stock market crash and Clair becomes entangled in the burlesque world in an effort to save her family and herself. Ultimately, both Anne and Clair—two very different women living in very different eras—attain true fulfillment . . . with some help from their silver shoes.
Buzzfeed named The Silver Shoes one of the five books you should read if you loved Jane Austin. In her first novel, The Black Velvet Coat, Jill also connects two women across the ages. Both books would make great book club reads.
