Cats & Daughters from Bestselling Author Helen Brown

Readers have been eagerly awaiting Helen Brown’s sequel to Cleo. Filled with joy, tears, and witty prose, Cats & Daughters is going to leave readers wanting much more.

With CATS & DAUGHTERS: THEY DON’T ALWAYS COME WHEN CALLED, award-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author Helen Brown presents the perfect follow-up to CLEO, her memoir about the kitten who helped heal her family in the aftermath of tragic loss. With the same irresistible wit, wisdom and heart that made CLEO a phenomenal success, Helen Brown returns to tell the story of how one cat leads to another, and how rebellious felines and daughters have more in common than one might think. Already an international bestseller, CATS & DAUGHTERS has just been released in the United States by Citadel Press.

Helen Brown swore another cat was the last thing she needed. But soon after she was diagnosed with breast cancer and recovering from surgery, a feisty Siamese kitten called Jonah bounced into her life and proved to be a healer in his own right.

Jonah’s arrival coincided with the completion of her internationally bestselling memoir, Cleo, as well as preparations for the wedding of her son and struggles with her daughter’s determination to embark on a spiritual journey. Jonah, as it happened, was just as headstrong as Helen’s daughter. So while Helen attempted to deal with her own mortality and help arrange a wedding, her daughter took off to become a Buddhist nun in war-torn Sri Lanka and Jonah fled down the street.

In CATS & DAUGHTERS, Helen Brown writes with honesty and humor about family life, its serious setbacks and life-changing events, and the antics of a rambunctious cat called Jonah. She also learns that sometimes the best thing a caring mother and cat slave can do is step back, have faith in those she loves, and be grateful nothing’s perfect.
