Who are you when you are forced to walk in someone else’s shoes?

She’s not got much, but she’s grateful for what she has: a job she’s just about clinging on to and a family who depend on her for everything. She knows she’s one bad day away from losing it all – and just hopes today isn’t it . . .

She’s got everything she always dreamed of – and more: a phenomenally rich husband; an international lifestyle; and . . . she’s just been locked out of all of it after her husband initiates divorce proceedings . . .

Sam and Nisha should never have crossed paths. But after a bag mix-up at the gym, their lives become intertwined – even as they spiral out of control.

Each blames the other as they feel increasingly invisible, forgotten, lost – and desperately alone.

But they’re not.

No woman is an island. Look around. Family. Friends. Strangers.
Even the woman you believe just ruined your life might turn out to be your best friend.
Because together you can do anything – like take back what is yours . . .

‘[A] captivating new blockbuster. Once you step into the lives of Sam and Nisha, you’ll be racing through the pages. Relatable, memorable and engaging’ DAILY EXPRESS

‘A paean to women’s solidarity wrapped up in a very funny revenge-fuelled caper’ THE TIMES

‘A warm, witty and uplifting novel . . . It’s a joy to spend time with Jojo Moyes’ flawed, likeable characters. Another winner from a fabulous author’ SUNDAY EXPRESS

‘A love letter to the strength of female friendship and how women can really be there for each other’ GOOD HOUSEKEEPING

‘Hard-hitting and laugh-aloud . . . Two women’s lives intertwine and change profoundly in this story full of richly imagined characters’ THE TIMES

‘Empathy and an extravagant plot collide in Moyes’s big hug of a novel’ MAIL ON SUNDAY

Someone Else’s Shoes: No 1 Sunday Times bestseller February 2023

Publisher Review

Do shoes make the woman... or does the woman make the shoes? Jojo Moyes' new novel is a delightful reverse-Cinderella story of two women who seem polar opposites - until circumstance forces them to experience each other's lives. Nobody writes women the way Jojo Moyes does - recognizably real and complex and funny and flawed - which is what makes her novels an auto-buy for me -- Jodi Picoult, #1 NYT bestselling author Someone Else's Shoes is a fantastic novel about the power of female friendships that hugely resonates with me; I'm such a big fan of Jojo's work and of her brilliant, joyful writing. It was an honour to be asked to narrate the story and I hope listeners enjoy the audiobook as much as I enjoyed recording it -- Daisy Ridley A compelling, full-of-heart novel about the power of female friendship * Kirkus * Praise for Jojo Moyes * - * Moyes is on dazzling form in this big-hearted story * Daily Mirror * Raw, funny, real and sad, this is storytelling at its best * Marie Claire * Blisteringly good * Sun * This truly beautiful story made us laugh, smile and sob like a baby - you simply have to read it * Closer * Entertaining, immersive and moving * Sunday Times * Dazzling * Sunday Express * Moyes somehow manages to break your heart before restoring your faith in love * Sunday Express * A genuinely entertaining book, a really cracking story * Stylist *
