it was amazing

Absolutely loved this book. It was extremely painful to read in parts, had me in tears forever, and at the same time had me in stitches at the behaviour of this little furry intruder..

I have a sister in law who was bereaved in the same way as this family, and reading this made me appreciate her suffering in the years following. I felt so sad, the author had an excellent style of portraying her feelings, the hopelessness and emptiness.

I was impressed by the way periods of sadness were swept away watching the kitten play, and then how they crept up on the author when she was least expecting it.

The whole novel was a great read, and I've now passed the book onto my own mother to read..she's enjoying it too, I believe.
