Details

This is the third book in the moving and true story of what happened to the cats of Moon Cottage.

The author is happily ensconced within the safe haven of Moon Cottage with her husband, his son and their three cats Fannie, Titus and Pushkin, but things happen to enable a dream to come true for Marilyn and her husband, Michael.

A move to the country is on the horizon. However, the stuff that dreams are made of does not always suit the cats in one's life because, as all cat-lovers will recognise, cats hate change. As in the earlier books the author combines humour, a little sadness and her own particular brand of enthusiasm while studying the issues raised by cohabiting with felines. In this book she tackles too the problem of realising a dream only to find that the dream is not necessarily the perfection it was imagined to be.

Feline bereavement, reproduction, jealousy, passion, love, laughter, tenderness, wildlife in general and in particular village life in Cumbria are all discussed in Marilyn's wonderful and much-loved honest style. Above all she reminds us of the truth of why cats matter.

"I admire this book even more than its predecessors. I don't think it's exaggerating to say that in some ways it stands comparison with Tarka the Otter. The tone of voice is different, and so is the pace, but the observation and the empathy are of similar quality and these, I believe, are the most important things in attempts to interpret the animal world to the rest of us" - Geoffrey Moorhouse

This is a brand new hardback copy complete with dust jacket with illustrations by Peter Warner and signed by Marilyn Edwards specially for customers of Erin House.
