View: 6603The New York Times–bestselling author of Cleo “reprises her first book’s theme: cats have the power to help heal human suffering” (Publishers Weekly, starred review). Some say your previous cat chooses your new feline. If so, what in cat heaven’s name was our beloved Cleo thinking when she sent us a crazy cat like Jonah? Helen Brown swore she’d never get another cat after her precious Cleo died. But that was before a cute Siamese with an intense blue gaze wrapped her around his paw. Demonstrating the grace of a trapeze artist—and a talent for smashing anything breakable—Jonah seduced the household with his daredevil antics and heart-melting purr. With her son getting married, her daughter setting off on a potentially dangerous personal quest, and a recent brush with her own mortality, Helen faced a whirlwind of joys and challenges. Yet Jonah proved just the thing to ease the busy household’s growing pains. Uplifting, witty, and wise, here is a story of love and family—four-legged members included.
