The Boot 1. The Boot The Boot

   (2 reviews)

This fictional story shows how people from different backgrounds can try to support others in a time of desperation, few real tales of homelessness have a happy ending.

It is written as a tribute to those who in the past and present have given and continue to give either time, money or other support to homeless shelters across the globe. Also in the hope that it will inspire others to do so in the future in whatever small way that they are able.

Can you help?

A brief period of events in a fictional night shelter for the homeless.

Most homeless people have been robbed of their hopes and dreams for the future. No matter what the reasons for homeless everyone is still entitled to have their hopes and dreams, to lose them is to lose the last thing of value that any of us can have.

Read weep and enjoy.

Most stories about homelessness are told from the point of view of the homeless themselves. This story, however, is from the point of view of one who is simply doing what he can to try to help the homeless, making it perhaps unusual for the genre. It is, as Backwoods Boy has already said, an excellently crafted story, which draws the reader in from the very first opening sentences. It is well worth the read, and I would recommend it wholeheartedly. I look forward to reading more of Mancunian's writing.

This is an excellently-crafted story about homelessness and the silent compassionate heroes who do what they can to help.  The author has a gift for character and setting detail that brings colorful life to the tale.  The conversation and interactions produce a reality that connects the reader closely to each very-unique character.  One exits the adventure with as much hope for the future as Ian and Kevin have found.

Response from the author:

Our hopes and dreams are the most precious thing that we all have, I wanted to show that we can help return them to those that have lost them. Thank you for the kind review.
