About this title


From the front flap of this 288 page book: "Perhaps Thomasina did not really have divine powers. Possibly she was only an ordinary cat. But it cannot be denied that she changed three lives in a near-miraculous manner. There was Andrew MacDhui, Scottish veterinarian, whose bristling manner matched his fiery beard. Dour and withdrawn since his wife's death, he had little patience with wooing sick animals back to health and was said to be a wee bit too quick with the chloroform. There was Andrew's seven-year-old daughter, who brought her ailing cat, Thomasina, to her father to be cured - only to be bitterly disappointed by Andrew's hasty and unfeeling disposal of her beloved cat. And there was Lori - beautiful, 'daft Lori', whose gentle and mysterious powers of healing caused some of the villagers to call her a saint - or a witch. How Thomasina, taking full advantage of a cat's nine lives, brought these three together in a story which may be enjoyed for its face-value excitement and whimsey, but in which the more discerning reader will find both trenchant allegory and spirit-lifting philosophy. Set in the rugged and picturesque Scottish highlands, Paul Gallico's latest and finest work, while it retains the elements of faith and enchantment which have long delighted his many devotees, is primarily a novel of romance, character, and high adventure. With superb artistry, the author blends fantasy and warm humanity into a poignant tale of the natural and supernatural in 'Thomasina'."
