Jonah entered Helen Brown's life not long after she was diagnosed with breast cancer and had begun recovery from a mastectomy. His arrival coincided with the finalisation of her previous book, Cleo, as well as preparations for the wedding of her son and struggles with her daughter's determination to embark on a spiritual journey. Jonah, as it happened, was just as headstrong as Helen's daughter. So while Helen attempted to deal with her own mortality and help arrange a wedding, her daughter took off to war-torn Sri Lanka and Jonah fled down the street. In Cats and Daughters, Helen Brown writes with honesty and humour about family life, its serious setbacks and life-changing events. She also learns that sometimes the best thing a strong mother and cat slave can do is step back, have faith in those she loves and be grateful nothing's perfect. As Helen writes in her dedication, this book is 'to cats and daughters who don't always come when called'.

The 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. Don’t Miss Helen Brown’s Beloved Bestseller, Cleo “A remarkable memoir . . . I realized that Helen Brown didn’t break my heart at all—she opened it.” —Beth Hoffman, New York Times–bestselling author “The next Marley & Me. Even non-cat-lovers will be moved.” —Good Housekeeping “A buoyant tale, heartfelt and open.” —Booklist “An absolute must.” —Cat World

Whispers from the mirror fill her home and what she sees is not her reflection but a man named Ian trapped inside a glass prison. “It was left in front of my shop by this old woman who claimed that it was cursed.” “Finally someone who can see me without screaming... Oh, you have no idea how relieving it is to actually talk to someone other than myself.” “You couldn’t save her before, and you can’t save her now.”

Dirty, dangerous, pristine, and opulent. Welcome to West Marque. The Call has gone out, summoning the Fifth Wheel to the Holy City, Jonah’s Sword. There, they prepare to take their sacred oath as knights-of-the-realm. The Marshals, the Marshals’ Men and even the High Marshal himself, Ablechance Mainhouse, will attend. The oath swearing occurs only once every twenty years and is often accompanied by change…and sometimes war. The realm has enjoyed peace for nearly two decades under Mainhouse but the bitter taste of defeat still lingers in the mouths of his old rivals. Many would like to see the old man removed from the High Seat, including Genevieve Goodregard, the Lady of Seawall. Genevieve desires to see her husband as High Marshal and herself as High Lady. She has worked hard to this end with the help of the scheming and powerful bishop, Michael. For Genevieve, the Call is much more than the swearing of an ancient oath. It is a call to action. The chips are down, the important players are gathered, and it is time for her to play her hand. It is a time for her to go All In.
