DNF at 20%. I thought this book would grasp me emotionally, but I struggled with the POV and I felt as if Sarah's death came too quickly for me to get any form of attachment to her. I think that lack of emotional bond massively pulled me out of the story.

Unreadable. I really couldn’t get beyond the first 20 or so pages without losing all my brain cells, this book is so twee and saccharine. Horrible!

Princess Fuzzypants here: This was a hard book to read, not because it was bad but because it was very good at tugging at my heart and making me feel so sad for the kitty, Prudence. The book opens with her wondering why her human, Sarah, has not come home. She keeps thinking that Sarah will return, even after a neighbour comes in to feed her and even after Sarah’s daughter, Laura, puts her in a carrier and takes her to a new “country” - the other side of Manhattan.

There are three different view points throughout the book but Prudence’s loyalty and love and hope are so painful because she still wants to keep Sarah close to her. But Sarah is gone and both Prudence and Laura have to come to terms with it. Laura, in particular, has been estranged since one tragic day in her early teens. Mother and daughter never really communicated after that.and Laura bears the wounds of that rift. Now it is too late for either of them to say the words that might have reconciled them. Throughout the days when she is unable to mourn, there are other changes being thrust upon her and bringing her to the breaking point. Almost.

But Prudence will teach her some important lesson and love will save the day. It is an emotional rollercoaster for the characters and the reader; I did not expect it to be quite as heart wrenching but by the end of the book, I was glad I stayed the course. The fact that some of the events related in the story actually did happen makes it even more devastating. Four purrs and two paws up.

In this sequel to Dear Prudence, Cooper weaves the stories of Prudence, a cat, Sarah, her owner, and Laura, Sarah's daughter who inherits the cat. Unable to grieve, Laura and Prudence begin to love each other and to heal.

This is such a beautiful story it will forever remain at the top of my favorites list. You can't help but fall in love with Prudence as she trains her humans in a cat's way of life and love. You will enjoy this book regardless if you're a cat lover or not. Thanks to author Gwen Cooper and NetGalley. The opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
