A beautifully written novel with long-lasting friendship at its heart and two elderly women search for their missing cat, and uncover a mystery at the same time. In the genre of such classics as Tom's Midnight Garden and The Secret Garden. Two old ladies living in a tall old house, are finding life increasingly dull now that the houses in their square are all office buildings. No more families, no more children to brighten their lives. So when their beloved cat, Nicholas, disappears they are distraught and are determined to find him no matter what. In their quest to find Nicholas, something rather mysterious happens and their lives are never quite the same again...A touching story which will delight younger readers, written in the author's quiet, literary, accessible style.
