Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to spotlight upcoming releases that we are excited for.
It’s been a while since I read Jojo Moyes (I still haven’t forgiven her for the heartbreak that Me Before You all those years ago), but there is something about this upcoming novel, Someone Else’s Shoes that is calling to me … hopefully, my heart can withstand whatever Moyes is about to dish up, because we know it’s going to amazing.
Expected Publication: 2nd February 2023

A story of mix-ups, mess-ups and making the most of second chances, this is the new novel from international sensation Jojo Moyes, author of Me Before You and The Giver of Stars
Who are you when you are forced to walk in someone else’s shoes?
Nisha Cantor and Sam Kemp are two very different women.
Nisha, 45, lives the globetrotting life of the seriously wealthy, until her husband inexplicably cuts her off entirely. She doesn’t even have the shoes she was, until a moment ago, standing in.
That’s because Sam – 47, middle-aged, struggling to keep herself and her family afloat – has accidentally taken Nisha’s gym bag.
Now Nisha’s got nothing. And Sam’s walking tall with shoes that catch eyes – and give her a career an unexpected boost.
Except Nisha wants her life back – and she’ll start with her shoes . . .
Two women suddenly forced to walk in another’s shoes. But having done so, can either ever return to the life they had? Are they changed for ever?
Someone Else’s Shoes is a funny, moving and heartfelt story about how, for any of us just one little thing can suddenly change everything.
