'We're not going to get a kitten, we're just going to look at them. . .' Helen Brown Gentry wasn't a cat person, but her nine-year-old son Sam desperately wanted one. So that day he chose a beautiful little black kitten to be delivered to their home in a few weeks' time. A week later, Sam was killed in an accident and his family were torn apart by grief. Struggling to cope, Helen forgot about the kitten until, one day, it was delivered to their door. Traumatised by Sam's death, Helen didn't know what to do with it. But Sam's younger brother Rob wanted to keep her, as she was after all, Sam's cat. And for the first time since Sam's death, Helen saw Rob smile. Cleo the kitten had to stay. And stay with the family she did, going on to become the family's high priestess and guardian. Cleo's personality was immense, and she became witness to the family's life through times of joy and sadness, sharing everything with them. CLEO is a beautifully written warm and often funny book about love, loss and redemption.
