From Gwen Cooper, author of the New York Times bestselling memoir Homer’s Odyssey, comes a tender, joyful, utterly unforgettable novel, primarily told through the eyes of the most observant member of any human family: the cat.
Loves Saves the Day sounds like just the book for us! Not only is it about a cat, it’s mostly “written” by a cat! Plus, we absolutely fell in love with Cooper when we read her book about her blind cat, Homer, so we’re extra excited to dive into her latest novel.
When Prudence the irresistIble tabby cat met a woman named Sarah in a deserted construction site in Manhattan, she knew she had found the woman who she was meant to adopt as her forever mom — and so she did.
The two of them had the happiest, lovingest, best life together for three years, until one day, Sarah didn’t come home. Instead, her daughter, who Prudence hardly ever saw at the apartment, showed up with boxes. The good news is that they took Prudence to live with them. But the tricky part is that it took Prudence forever to teach them all the things they needed to know about cats … like how cats should be feed before the humans and at the same time every day.
Loves Saves the Day is a book for anyone who’s ever lost a loved one, wondered what their cat was really thinking, or fallen asleep with a purring feline nestled in their arms. Prudence, a cat like no other, is sure to steal your heart.
