This story hit very close to home for me on several levels and I am two generations removed from the Holocaust. What a truly moving story! Reading about the life of Marika and how she struggled through her many trials only to fall and rise again was heart wretching! I was truly looking for the same happy ending that she was around every corner, and cried and laughed along with the book. She did a wonderful job bringing the color of all the characters to life. Each person seemed so alive, as if I had actually met them in person, from her sweet and beautiful mother, her devoted father, and horrid relatives. At times you wanted to hug her saviors, and to deliver judgement to her enemies. A truly wonderful book, and a very special one to add to any collection of Holocaust or History lovers' shelves.

I was mesmerized from the very first page of this book and couldn't put it down until I'd finished. Even though Marika Roth experienced such heartbreak and inhumane treatment in her childhood and continued difficulties in her early adult life, this was an inspiring story in that she prevailed, she never gave up, and in her later years finally found joy and happiness. Her writing is so beautiful that I felt as if I was living Ms. Roth's life with her as I read each page. I bought 5 copies and sent them to my closest friends who all told me how moved they were by her story.

Marika's story is more than a Holocaust story. It is the story of a child alone who managed to stay alive and to endure more than most adults could have borne. Even after all the horrors she suffered, she emerged as a strong, determined woman who could still dream and love. All the Pretty Shoes is the most compelling book I've read.

It is truly amazing what Marika Roth had experienced, and what she had to endure. Despite the cruel hardships of family life, war, and wrong marriages, she survived them all! This very well written book is a must read. Once you start reading it, you won't be able to stop.

There are many books written about the Holocaust, but good autobiographies, like this one, do not come along very often. She was such a brave, and smart, child/person to have gone through all that she did and survive. There were many times that I held my breath while she was describing some of her life-threatening experiences, even though I knew she survived. I definitely recommend this book.

Marika's story is compelling every step of the way. This is one woman who obstinately refuses to play the victim. Inspiring on many levels.

This story is not just a holocost story but one about survival. To imagine a twelve year old having to deal with these life threatening issues, alone, is heart-breaking. The story is told well and is difficult to put down once you start. The illustrations and photos help make it real to the reader and some of the situations this woman finds herself in will make you weep. What a strong woman she is to not only have survived but to come out of this a beautiful and talented person.

This is one of those books that you simply cannot put down and have to read straight through. Marika weaves her story in a way that tells of her survival and strength as well as educates the reader about the holocaust. I highly recommend this book to anyone at any age. We can all be inspired by Marika's strength and endurance as a child as well as Woman and Mother.
