Review by: BobbieFoedisch on Jan. 20, 2016 :
“This story creates a flood of emotion as Lytle brings us along this vivid journey through time and space over 60 years and across 2 continents in an effort to bring to life the written word of the struggles and joys endured by the strongest woman I have ever known. Captivating the existence of a soul so determined to change her world is no small task. A Mile in Her Shoes is truly compelling, captivating, maddening, saddening, joyous, and humorous. Evoking all of these emotions could leave the readers confused if it wasn’t orchestrated so perfectly, instead these emotions leave the reader fulfilled and wanting to know the woman herself. This is a truly captivating story of one woman’s indomitable spirit, whom I personally strive to emulate every moment of every day. One woman. Our mother. My hero. I love you, Mom… and I think about you every single day. Love,Your Bobbie, Daughter of the Most Exceptional Woman in Life and Death.”

Review by: Gregory Emch on Jan. 20, 2016 :
"There’s debate about whether we dream in black and white. Well, whatever this was, it was in high-definition technicolor. On acid. My head trauma opened up new reality, a journey through almost sixty years and across two continents in a matter of minutes."

In a novella filled with vivid imagery, Judy Lytle captures the essence of her mother's engaging history while taking the reader on a journey through the beginning of her life in 1950s war-torn Korea to eventually finding true love with a U.S. Air Force sergeant and following him to America to create their own American dream. The reverent story effortlessly describes a uniquely human experience through the decades: a life filled with happiness, triumphs, and of course, struggles. Dr. Lytle transports the reader directly into the life of a captivating woman, beautiful in her strength and fierce in her expressiveness and love.
