Book Review – Red Boots by Kate Willis

★★★★ 4 Stars

Genre: Short Stories / Fiction
Publication Date: December 6th, 2017
Publisher: Toward Home Press

Red Boots is a Christmas story with a lovely message about generosity. It has a very Dickensian vibe, the shopkeeper protagonist who is not so wealthy himself going out of his way to help a family with a young child.

There is no stress of anxiety over the holidays, it’s the kind of cozy short read that’s perfect for the frosty evenings on the horizon. Red Boots is optimistic and hopeful, and could’ve made a good short novel as well. I wish I had gotten to know more about the shopkeeper, like he doesn’t really elaborate a whole lot on his own situation. I suppose that shows his selflessness, but still would’ve been neat.
