Book summary

For those who appreciate storytelling at its finest, The Lighthouse, the Cat, and the Sea is a delightfully suspenseful tale of feline adventure. Dowager cat Mrs. Moore reflects on the days when she was a castaway kitten, cruising the straits of Florida in 1899. It's a world of riggings, sails, swaying hammocks, and a raucous crew, until a terrible storm lashes the ship and sweeps everyone overboard into the violently churning sea. Mrs. Moore washes up on the shore of a mysterious island, where her unlikely savior is a boy named Griffin, the lighthouse-keeper's son. Embraced into the warm, tropical confines of the lighthouse-keeper's bungalow, she finds that her new home is a place called Key West. There she enjoys her newfound happiness, until a ragged stranger comes calling--and reawakens memories of Mrs. Moore's seafaring life.

"Anyone who has ever loved a cat will treasure this heartfelt volume."--Dear Abby (on Cat Love Letters) [via]
