Pre-Order Filling Her Shoes

A spirit of tenderness, compassion and profound love shines through every page of Filling Her Shoes.  Betsy Graziani Fasbinder’s beautiful memoir will inspire not only stepparents, but anyone seeking to build joyous, lasting relationships. I’m in awe and amazement at the generous spirit and loving heart that shine through this book. – Samantha Waltz, Editor of Blended: Writers on the Stepfamily Experience

Fasbinder’s exquisite prose describing love and loss weaves its way into the deepest part of your soul. You’ll laugh, cry, and reflect on your own journey with the same paints she expertly uses throughout her memoir—compassion & honesty.
