"Humans best understand the truth of things if they come at it indirectly. Like how sometimes the best way to catch a mouse that's right in front of you is to back up before you pounce," notes Prudence, the feline at the center of this tender, unforgettable novel from the author of Homer's Odyssey. When five-week-old Prudence meets a woman named Sarah in a deserted construction site on Manhattan's Lower East Side, she knows she's found the human she was meant to adopt. For three years their lives are filled with laughter, tuna, catnaps, music, and the unchanging routines that Prudence craves. Then one day Sarah doesn't come home. And when Laura, Sarah's estranged daughter, and her husband arrive with boxes, Prudence knows that her life has changed forever. Poignant, insightful, and laugh-out-loud funny, this is a story of hope, healing, and how the love of an animal can make all of us better humans. Through Prudence, through Laura, and through Sarah, Gwen Cooper tells the story of a mother and daughter divided by the turmoil of bohemian New York, and the opinionated, irrepressible feline who will become the bridge between them.

"The interspersed viewpoints ... enrich Cooper's sensitively told novel that unravels a story (based on actual events) about a century-old tenement building—and the inhabitants therein. That story ultimately serves as the basis to understanding the emotional subtexts of these authentic, well-drawn characters."—Shelf Awareness

"In this poignant tale of loss and regret, Cooper ... once again demonstrates her compassionate fluency in felinespeak and proves equally adept at conveying complex human emotions with flair and sensitivity."—Booklist
