SPIRITED AWAY

SHOES 3Five-year-old Finn Cleary, an irrepressible passenger on Titanic, has tough shoes to fill, trying to compete with his older brother, but his death delivers a tougher quest.

Finding Finn’s lost shoes may be young love’s only chance to stay together.

EXCERPT from ‘THE UNTHINKABLE SHOES’

[Visitors come to marvel at the miracle of my shoes, awed that a pair of innocent shoes survived the terrifying chaos when hundreds of people perished. The little shrine of the shoes celebrates a moment in time. But not what they imagine. I know their secret. You’d think a dead child’s shoes would make them grief-stricken, entirely. But then I’ve known miracle shoes before and I know how they can capture a soul with magic. I’ve seen them cast a spell. I’ve seen them break a mother’s heart. I can’t go back to Mam shoeless. Sure she’d skin me alive. Losing my shoes is a sin and I lost TWO pairs in the one day.]

    Now, Veronica Knox, THOSE little shoes (above) do not look new.

    • Well, new shoes would no longer look new after going through a marine disaster, stolen from the broken body of a Titanic victim, and stored for years in someone’s attic. The picture is generic, as they might appear in a museum. However, Finn’s ‘boot-style- shoes would have had a higher top. They would have been saturated in saltwater, dried under questionable circumstances, and (I won’t divulge more information as it would be a spoiler) but eventually they were roughly stored (hidden) for many years in less than ideal conditions for conserving an artifact.
