This is a book that I re-read often. It is both cathartic and inspirational.
In this beautiful, wonderful book, Ms. Roth learns to come to terms with herself and life, with the help of a cat named Mr. Blanche. She learns to overcome fears and obsessions that hold her back, restricting her growth as a human, and keeping her at a distance from love itself. With the help of her cat, she learns how to open up to love without the fear of loss. It is here that her cat teams up with her father, who is also her lifelong hero.
This is a very special book. I recommend it highly to those who love reading, writing, cats, and to those who want to live life fully.
