Gwen Cooper’s Curl Up with a Cat Tale series features humorous and heartwarming short stories about the ongoing adventures of Gwen’s feline family. I find myself falling a little bit more in love with Gwen’s cats with each story. This month’s installment goes back to the time Gwen and her three cats moved from Miami to New York City.
As Gwen and the cats adjust to living on the 31st floor of a high rise, dealing with a temperamental heating system, delayed delivery of her furniture and household goods, and feeling constantly cold, Gwen tries not to doubt her decision to move. And then she experiences her first snowfall in the city, and everything changes.
Gwen’s writing is always beautiful, but the passage about the snow is one of the most exquisite pieces of writing I’ve read in a long time. I found myself moved to tears by the lyrical magic of Gwen’s words.
And just when I thought I had recovered, Gwen brings the story to its wonderful conclusion, and I started to tear up all over again, but again, in the best possible way. You’ll just have to read the story to find out what I’m talking about.
Individual stories in the Curl Up with a Cat Tale series are available on Amazon, Nook, etc., or you can make a one-time payment of $14.99 to get all the stories for the whole year at a 60% discount off the retail price – and you know you’re going to want to read the whole series.
