My Slippers are My Best Friend
Ivy Caine’s modest slippers protect her feet as she harvests rice, when she stands all day decorating cakes, and when she goes to college on a scholarship in the Phillippines. She moves to Taiwan. Her friend emigrates to Canada, leaving a pair of multicoloured slippers. A note inside says, “see you in Canada soon.” Those slippers are with her when she arrives in Leduc, Alberta.
