Summary

The spiritual journey takes unexpected turns for the women of Sensible Shoes in this third book of the series, continuing on from the events of Two Steps Forward. Having been challenged to persevere in hope, can they now embrace the joy of complete surrender? 

Mara: With two boys at home and a divorce on the way, can she let go of her resentment and bitterness and find a rhythm of grace in her "new normal"? 

Hannah: With Nathan by her side, can she let go of expectations - and even her reputation - as she charts a new course? 

Charissa: As her approaching due date threatens to collide with new professional opportunities, can she let go of her need for control and embrace the unknown future with trust?

Meg: With disappointment over broken relationships and unfulfilled dreams, can she let go of her fear and worry in the face of even greater challenges that lie ahead? 

Join the women of the Sensible Shoes Club in a poignant story that reveals the joy that comes from laying our lives at the feet of God and standing barefoot on holy ground.

An Emotional, Poignant Story

This one was so close to reality. I don’t you’ll have trouble identifying with some of the life challenges in this book - and see how you can invite and lean on Christ through it all.

It seems so real.

Brilliantly written so much so that when I finished “Barefoot” I was so sad as I wanted more. I identify so much with different ladies at different points in my life. A beautiful opportunity for reflections throughout the story.

I’d highly recommend this book.

I wanted to keep listening to this lovely book which was beautifully narrated, but also didn’t want it to finish. I’m so glad to be reading this series.
Thank you Sharon Garlough Brown for your gifted way of writing.
I’d highly recommend.

Beautiful continuation of a meaningful series.

The story is so well told and so good at pointing the reader to Jesus and the ways faith can be lived out day-to-day without being trite. Real, relatable characters. Life changing insights. I recommend it highly. The narrator is excellent.

Love this series!

I absolutely loved this book! The characters I fall in love with & I laugh & cry as I listen. I also love the biblical practices & I've learned things that I've put in place in my own life. The story line leaves me wanting more, and I literally cried out "no!" when the book ended. I truly care about these characters as crazy as it sounds. I cannot wait for the final book! I also love that some of it takes place in Michigan as it's where I'm from & live today. I think the narrator does a fantastic job as well. Very highly recommend this listen! I can't wait to check out more of Sharon's books. THANK YOU!!
