Jill G. Hall whose second book “The Silver Shoes” hit the Warwick’s bestseller list its first week on the shelves.

Chateau Bel Age, the Mission Hills treasure trove of elegant, quirky styles for women recently started offering something new: silver shoes – but not the kind you wear! The boutique hosted a champagne meet and greet for bestselling author Jill G. Hall whose second book “The Silver Shoes” hit the Warwick’s bestseller list its first week on the shelves.

If you think that a boutique is an unusual place for an author event, then you haven’t read Hall’s historical fiction novels. Both “The Black Velvet Coat” and “The Silver Shoes” are about women from different eras whose lives are intertwined by an item of clothing discovered at a vintage shop.

In her latest, Hall, an International Book Award finalist, crafts a sparkling tale set in both New York’s Roarin’ Twenties and modern-day San Francisco. The story follows two women bound by a pair of vintage dance shoes worn by their original owner, a fallen debutant who tries to save her family from post-stock market crash ruin by becoming a burlesque dancer. Weaving seamlessly from past to present, the novel explores what it means to be a woman, artist, and lover in a world filled with expectations that are often at odds with one’s true self.

More than a hundred guests attended the event at Chateau Bel Age, some in the “paglamas,” glamorous pajamas, or funky kimonos and bold headbands they purchased at the store. “I adore this shop, which is why it was so meaningful that they invited me to have an event here,” says Hall. “Like the modern-day character in my books, I am an artist who wonders about the lives of the people behind the fashions, so this event was really life imitating art.”
