Deeply romantic and poignant, 'Running Barefoot' is the story of a small town girl and a Native American boy, the ties that bind us to our homes and families, and the love that gives us wings.
Josie and Samuel meet on a school bus and an unlikely friendship develops between them. On the outside, they are a 13-year-old and an 18-year-old, a blonde girl and a Navajo boy, a musical prodigy and an outsider. But underneath the surface are two souls who understand each other. What ensues are years of life lived not quite together, yet not far from each other's minds, and an incredible journey of friendship, misunderstanding, honor, heartache, compassion, and a deep love that can overcome anything if given the chance.
I cannot, or will not, go into great depth into this story because it is such a wide-sweeping journey that I'm afraid to give too much away. This is one of those special stories you will want to read and experience for yourself. And like me, be prepared to fall in love with Sam and Josie and their incredible love story.
