Publisher's Description

Jake Wilkerson, a disillusioned young pastor who is an expert at hiding his fears, takes on a new assignment at a small rural church in Coudersport, Pennsylvania--which is a far piece from anywhere and full of curiously odd and eccentric people. His first day on the job, he is adopted by Petey--a cat of unknown origins and breed--but a very sentient cat who believes that he is on a mission from God to redeem Jake and bring him back to the truth. Jake must confront his doubts early on when he meets Emma Grainger, a single woman and a veterinarian who dismisses all Christians as "those people." Then, Tassy, a young runaway with a secret, arrives at the door of the church looking for a place of refuge. How does Jake deal with this runaway and his interest in Dr. Grainger? More importantly, can Jake rekindle his faith? Petey does his best to lead all people to the truth, in a most subtle and feline way.

    I love this book! Imagine a Pastor struggling with his faith, losing all he thought he valued and sent on to pastor a small, struggling congregation in a small town. Then a stray cat shows up and adopts him - a beauty of a cat - and begins to sit in on the weekly sermons. It is amazing what happens next. And what is really amazing is that, from the things that the Lord has done in my life, this could actually happen! A delightful book of faith, life, and discovering truths about the Lord from our hearts, not from our minds...God can use anything in His creation to make a change in our lives!

    Who doesn't like a good cat book? I love animals, and we have 14 cats, so this book resonated with me in a very special way. This book has it all. Realistic stories from a small, country town, animals, romance, loss of faith, and even some emotionally-charged scenes. I have to say that I even cried during this book--that is saying something. This book is filled with humor, and I honestly believe there is something for everyone. It is clean and uplifting.

    The most important thing I learned is that God can and will use anyone. This includes people and animals. After all, is God can use a donkey, why can't he use a cat? The Christian message is cleverly woven into the story, and this is one that I would recommend to all. There are some hard issues in the book that many people will relate to.

    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    This was an enjoyable book. I liked the main characters, and the plot was unique. The only problem was that the theology was rather unclear. They talked about having faith, but they really never said what they had faith in. That part was weird! This book did have a good climax, though. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian fiction.

    I really enjoyed this book very much. I truly believe that animals do know what you are saying. I also love cats too.

    I want to get the book about the dog and God. Once I started reading it was very hard to put down. Hope everyone enjoys this book as much as I did.
