Cats and Daughters: They Don’t Always Come When Called


Cats and Daughters is New York Times bestselling author Helen Brown’s heartwarming account of meeting the universal challenges we face in getting older and (sometimes) growing wiser. Just as Brown’s settled into a new home, the relished quiet of her life is interrupted by the arrival of Jonah, a troublemaking young cat who quickly causes the house to descend into chaos. Add to this her daughter Lydia’s announced desire to move to Sri Lanka and become a Buddhist nun, the upcoming marriage of her son, and a brush with her own mortality, and it’s a whirlwind of events and upset. Brown’s story of how she learns to let go and embrace change is both inspiring and moving.
