Fugitive Shoes (Five Star Expressions) Hardcover – April 1, 2006
This desire leads her to form an unlikely rock-n-roll band which she uses as a front to conceal her perilous plan to smuggle a Mexican family across the border. But her task is complicated by her budding romance with an Immigration officer. . . .
The deeper she lets this man into her life, the closer he gets to the truth. Her days become a minefield, where one misstep will cost her everything she holds dear. And if that werent enough, a group of so-called patriots is scouring the area for signs of unlawful aliens; their justice is cruel and swift. Sally and her friends come into direct contention with these armed bigots, and as their popularity as musicians grows, so does the enmity between them and the men who would expose their Mexican stowaways.
Fugitive Shoes is a story of three womens efforts to let go of the past, to find unexpected love, to mingle with dangerous people, and to thwart the law when the law seems wrong. Most of all it is a story of libertad: Freedom.

Sally concludes the Juan Doe was seeking freedom. She also learns from Immigration Officer Leigh Surry that some patriots seek out the desperate Mexicans to provide their own brand of justice. Needing to do something and now part of a band called Radio due to a foolish bet by Sally with their adopted teen Jazmyn and her two best friends, she decides to help families cross the border even if it means the vigilantes come after them.
FUGITIVE SHOES is an interesting thriller that takes a close look at border justice with the author making no apologies for defending the basic human rights of illegals trying to sneak into the country against adverse environmental conditions, hostile governments and lethal zealous patriots. The exciting story line seems implausible at times and the flashbacks to the female friends' youths feel disjointed. Still fans of strong caring women risking their lives to do what they feel is right will appreciate the three amigas and their "daughter" as they sing their way to fame and fortune while Sally assists those sneaking into the country.
