Suddenly Prudence finds herself living in a strange apartment with humans she barely knows. It could take years to train them in the feline courtesies and customs (for example, a cat should always be fed before the humans, and at the same exact time every day) that Sarah understood so well. Prudence clings to the hope that Sarah will come back for her, while Laura, a rising young corporate attorney, tries to push away memories of her mother and the tumultuous childhood spent in her mother's dusty downtown record store. But the secret joys, past hurts, and life-changing moments that make every mother-daughter relationship special will come to the surface. With Prudence's help, Laura will learn that the past, like a mother's love, never dies.
Poignant, insightful, and laugh-out-loud funny, Love Saves the Day is a story of hope, healing, and how the love of an animal can make all of us better humans. It's the story of a mother and daughter divided by the turmoil of bohemian New York, and the opinionated, irrepressible feline who will become the bridge between them. It's a novel for anyone who's ever lost a loved one, wondered what their cat was really thinking, or fallen asleep with a purring feline nestled in their arms. Prudence, a cat like no other, is sure to steal your heart.

I bought this book because I adored the author's previous non-fiction book Homer's Odyssey. I wasn't sure I would enjoy the story of Love Saves the Day, but it turned out to be totally delightful!
At first, the story from Prudence's perspective (the cat) grew a little tiring. However, a bit into the story, the chapters began alternating between three different perspectives, and that was a perfect way for it to progress. On the surface, this book seems to be the story of Prudence the cat, but it is truly a sweet story about relationships--mother/daughter, husband/wife, and yes, Prudence and her people.
The story was very well written and narrated well too--definitely worthy of one's time and credit. I hope she continues writing--I'm looking forward to more books from Gwen Cooper!
