Angels and Demons
Crimes and Charisma
Children stolen for the Millenium
The beautiful, charismatic Petra Penfold-Knight, accustomed to her own way from birth, grows up to lead a religious cult whose devotees wear old red shoes. The cult attracts members through Petra's magnetism, as well as by more sinister means, such as stealing children born to unmarried girls.
Imbued with ancient narratives, myths, music and dance, Red Shoes is told by Petra's guardian angel, who has a unique slant on the nature of reality and on the darker side of female sexuality. the angel's perception is subversive, playful and sublimely witty, and illuminates Petra's surface allure, which disguises a complex yet brutal personality and a moral vacuum.
