THE BAREFOOT GHOST is driven to find his lost shoes in a final attempt to win the affections of the troubled mother who ignored him in life, grieving over the untimely death of his sainted older brother, who died before he was born.
But tasked with saving a surviving girl on the doomed liner, meant to be his future wife in America, distracts Finn from his lonely mission to posthumously heal his unchecked sibling jealousy and restore his mother’s sanity.
‘THE UNTHINKABLE SHOES’ is a work of fiction by V Knox inspired by a pair of salvaged children’s shoes in a Titanic museum exhibit.

SNIPPET from page one of ‘THE UNTHINKABLE SHOES by V Knox’:
[I drowned three times. First, in the relentless rain of Ireland, second, in the deep gloom of mourning that settled over my mother, and third, in the freezing waters of the North Atlantic.
Even when the sun blazed down fierce as the devil there was the bleakness that settled in our bones like a great damp. Once in a blue moon Mam would pull me into her lap, rocking and singing and hanging on to me for dear life, calling me Michael, her wee angel, and ask me where we were going because sweet Jesus she was lost at sea.
It’s sad, how in moments of despair when all a body wants is hope, a still small voice will tell you the truth you don’t want to hear. Because, you see, I’m NOT Michael! I’m Finn, and it’s sad how precious-few blue moons there are.]
