To some, being the owner of a few cats earns the title of crazy cat lady, but to those of us who share our lives with them, we know that the relationship with our four legged friends runs deeper than that. Inspired by a true story and the cats in her own life who love to sit on her knee as she writes, The True Story of a Not So Crazy Cat Lady follows the tribulations of Harriet, a young woman who tries to rebuild her life following her divorce from the man she thought she would be with forever. Finding an abandoned litter of kittens, she discovers that caring for them helps to mend her broken heart, but doesn’t realise until it is too late that in doing so she is also labelled a crazy cat lady.
In this contemporary romance, Harriet travels to the depths of the English countryside and her own heart, as she learns that the companionship of a pet can be just as meaningful as that of a man. But when she meets Dan, who seems to be everything she could have ever wished for, she discovers how hard it is to juggle her affections for both.
A story for every woman who has a cat either at home or locked within the most tender memories of their past, and knows, whether they like to admit it aloud or not, that they have the capacity to touch our hearts.
