Reviews

A beautiful and inspiring tale that celebrates friendship that I am pretty sure will touch many hearts, it definitely touched mine * Alba in Bookland * I love that the best and brightest characters were older women who had refused to live the life society would have dictated to them. The joy they offered in just being unapologetically themselves is a great invitation to us all. * Create Hope Inspire blog * A powerful story about coming alive . . . Ruth Hogan depicts Masha's life with grace, eloquence, melancholy and this elegant writing is even more exquisite than in The Keeper of Lost Things * Apple Tree Antiquarian Books * Sally Red Shoes has completely stolen my heart . . . Gentle, quirky, hopeful. So clever, so beautiful. LOVED it * Books and the City * Another beautiful story from an author who writes like a dream * Random Things Through My Letterbox blog * Brilliantly written * Clem Loves * A highly original and quirky novel, it was well written and managed to balance moments of darkness with sensitivity, as well as light humour * Mrs B's Book Reviews * This book is brilliant, absolutely brilliant, I loved it * Wilde Reads * Thoughtful and moving ...

Once again she has proven that she has an uncanny ability to create a perfectly balanced, cosy and comforting read ... Her books are full of love, life, and human perseverance * The Bookish Bundle * A book that will tuck itself into your heart * Emma's Bookish Corner * Emotional * Love it! * A lovely, gentle, uplifting read * The Book Scoop * One of the stars of "up lit" - a literary trend with friendship and small acts of kindness at its core * Radio Times * Gloriously gorgeous in every way . . . Ruth Hogan has the very special ability to look beyond the veil of unremarkable to find a sometimes painful, yet beautifully quirky existence . . . The Wisdom of Sally Red Shoes is a must-read, and I enjoyed every single second of it * Lovereading * Thorny issues are explored with a sensitive humour that takes nothing away from what people are feeling * BookBag * The Up-Lit Queen * Sunday Post * Beautiful and unique * Take a Break * Hogan establishes a slightly left-of-centre world that's just a little more brightly coloured than the real one and deploys a host of eccentric characters to soften what is a wrenching story of recovery * Metro * This book has plenty of spirit and heart * Daily Mail * A novel that looks at how to live life to the full, even if you have suffered tragedy * Daily Mail * Vibrant -- Nina Pottell * Prima * An adorable heartfelt story -- Nina Pottell * Prima * From the author of breakout hit, The Keeper Of Lost Things, this is a book to really love. Exploring the aftermath of grief and the ways people carry on (with humour, with solace, with lidos ...) Hogan writes welcoming prose that makes reading a joy * Stylist * The Wisdom of Sally Red Shoes will soften even the hardest of hearts * Red * This is a work that packs in plenty of substance alongside the sweetness....Despite tackling such huge topics as bereavement and cancer - Hogan's work is filled with hope and the power of friendship -- Best uplifting books to read this summer * Evening Standard * Subtle and poignant * Good Housekeeping * We were huge fans of Ruth Hogan's The Keeper of Lost Things, and her second book is just as brilliantly written - though you may need tissues at the ready! * Sun * A whimsical, wistful affair * Sunday Express * Warm and wise ... With her bestselling 2017 debut, The Keeper of Lost Things, Hogan won fans for her astute portrayal of grief and the human capacity for recovery. It is territory she revisits here, adding to her themes that of community and its power to heal. Her passages on loss are vivid and visceral ... But hope is never lost and catharsis is to be found in unlikely places' * Guardian *
