Product Description

Product Description

Maybe everything has already happened, but only some of us can remember the future as well as the past.
Maybe if we die in a car crash, we slide into another universe where the accident didn't happen.
Maybe if we imagine horrible things vividly enough, they won't come true.


Sarah McLeod is put into a canoe on the Columbia River and sent to Red River to become the Victorian Era's vision of a lady. She is a half breed (their words). Her transformation is a raging success — so much so that she marries up-and-coming Hudson's Bay Company officer John Ballenden and becomes the leading lady of the settlement. 
You’d think that would be a good thing.

Robert Foss lives in present-day Red River. He wants to learn about the pair of ancient cottonwood trees on the riverbank outside his downtown condo. When he digs around a bit, he unearths Sarah's story.
Finally, he has something to do.

The Girl in the Boots meets Robert when she stops to fuss over her baby beneath those cottonwoods. She plays the fiddle, is extremely attractive, and even Robert's wife, Jane, likes her.
But she’s got her own reasons for that.


As for God... he isn’t finished yet.
And that really is a good thing.

A really engaging read - not always a fan of fiction that ping pongs back and forth from past to present, but the intertwined stories here held me from start to finish. A fascinating look at life in Manitoba in the 1800's, ans great storytelling built on solid historical research makes following that arc really enjoyable - and the present day narrative spins an interesting and complementary story about finding connections and coping with loss in the present day. Well worth reading.

I know the author. That's why I decided to read this book, kind of an obligation within the society of authors. But, between the start and the finish I fell in love with it. The story, the sadness, the beauty of life and the tragedy of relationship. That haunting hollowness of longing. All set against the backdrop of a Winnipeg that I had no clue existed, covered now with its modern facade. This was a thoroughly enjoyable, but yet tear-evoking book.

I loved this book and not just because I'm from Winnipeg and this book is about Winnipeg. Take a skein from a tapestry of local history and pull it free to the light of day and you have the Girl in the Boots. It's the 'peg's past and this author nails it. There's a delicious interplay of past and present: The stories get flipped over and the quirky characters slap 'em upside the head. With humour.

HASH(0xa54dc2ac) out of 5 stars Who is she really? Feb. 20 2013
By Beth Reimche - Published on Amazon.com

Loved this book because the author was able to take me from past to present and back again, weaving the lives of so many fascinating people into a story that stretches over a couple of centuries. It is never said in so many words but the author had an intriguing way of letting the reader know that the characters in the different centuries are somehow related! And whatever happened to the little carving of the lady that seemed to appear in various time frames? I sure hope it is safe and secure somewhere! It is very easy to connect with the characters, ride the waves of their lives, and feel like maybe you could also be part of this story somewhere.
