'A triumphant debut. A magical and absorbing read.' Angela Jackson, author of The Emergence of Judy Taylor
Old Rosa the bag lady shuffles along the streets of New York, stinking, silent and shunned.
After she suffers a terrible accident, her nephew Michael is called upon to visit her squalid apartment and there, in among the reeking piles of junk, he unearths a sparkling treasure that hints at a Rosa he can hardly imagine: an original pair of the ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz.
The slippers soon become an irresistible beacon to the misplaced hopes and darkest desires of friends, family and foe. But who will stop to learn the remarkable story behind Rosa's 'Ruby Millions'?
Bursting with atmosphere, invention and an unforgettable cast of characters, The Ruby Slippers is a sweeping tale of hidden treasures, forgotten histories, lost connection and the search for real meaning.
