Soulcat: A feline memoir Amy Vaughan-Spencer 4*#Review #Soulcat #FelineMemoir #SoulcatMemoir @RandomTTours #BlogTour #BookReview #Cats

Amy wrote a love letter… a note to the love of her life.

Only Molly never read it. Even if she’d been alive when it was written, failing eyesight would’ve prevented her from making out the words.

Besides which, she was a cat. And cats can’t read.

No ordinary feline, Molly lived a life full of challenge and adventure, determined not to let gradual blindness hold her back.

This is that letter and – against all the odds – Molly’s long-lost memoirs….

Soulcat is a delightful furrytail of a unique friendship, filled with amusing anecdotes and touching moments. The first half is Molly’s story told from the author’s perspective, including a glimpse into the life of a touring theatrical stage manager. Each chapter is punctuated with a photo of Molly and an apt cat quote.

Part 2 is life through Molly’s fading eyes, told in her own words (translated into English). Beautifully illustrated by Ellypop Illustration.

I received a copy of this book from the author.

My Thoughts…

An emotional memoir of the author’s life with Molly the cat, readers who share their lives with animal friends and particularly cats, will find much to enjoy in this. The book is in two halves, the first a memoir and the second an imagined memoir from Molly the cat’s viewpoint. Photographs and cat quotes accompany the memoir and lovely illustrations, Molly’s feline memoir.

I enjoyed both parts of the book, but I like the originality of Molly’s version. It’s easy and emotional reading and a lovely present for anyone who has loved and lost an animal companion.

Amy Vaughan-Spencer Author Bio

I have been writing for most of my life, in various forms, although Soulcat is the first completed project that has made it to publication (with the exception of 2 poems printed in anthologies half a lifetime ago). Although I always loved the idea of writing a book, I only became brave enough to share my work in recent years, discovering it might just be good enough to let loose on the general public. My love for Molly, and my determination to keep her memory alive, motivated me to get her memoir written and shared, and I thoroughly enjoyed exploring the world from her perspective, blurring the lines between fact and fiction.
