Dottie and Abby’s Grandmother worked on set with Judy Garland in the making of The Wizard of Oz. Dottie is happy keeping the family’s Kansas farm going, but Abby has her heart set on becoming a “star”.
When Dottie suffers from a head injury during a tornado, Abby moves her to a nursing home in California. With a bit of amnesia, Dottie takes awhile to realize that Abby is going to or has already sold the family farm. Then a pair of rubby slippers are left for her by her father, whom she hasn’t seen since childhood. Sophie, one of the residents at the home, encourages Dottie to search for her father. The two of them take off on an adventure with Sophie behind the wheel. As they travel, they soon realize someone is after the shoes, which are believed to have been worn by Judy in the movie. When Sophie’s son joins the group, there is trouble around every corner, but there is romance in the air. Ruby’s Slippers by Leanna Ellis is a fun story of adventure and love.
