In Her Mothers Shoes Book Cover

“This will resonate with New Zealand women readers in particular.” – Weekend magazine in The Press and the DomPost

5_starsFelicity Price is the mistress of the light, fast read. But in this book, she goes deep to tell her own story of adoption. Although the story is fictionalised, so much of it is true. And this makes the story very poignant. A really good read.

5_stars“Amazing to read a story that could very well have been about so many girls (myself included) and babies if they were not fortunate enough to be born in a more enlightened and less conservative era. Well done Felicity, sensitively written honoring all aspects of your past.”

5_stars“It was a privilege to read this personal journey of Felicity Price and her two families. Who says we haven’t made progress over the past decades. However, it is chilling to look back at the cruel, Victorian attitudes held by society and the ongoing ramifications of these on future generations. “
