visions of the story in their heads. Years later, they would tell these tales of life to their own children, and so on through the generations. Welcome to my back porch. Please make yourself at home. By the way, I remember when…
But how’s he supposed to turn down fresh cinnamon buns? And Robert hasn’t bargained on his neighbour’s innocent, probing questions. They erode his faith in naturalism and collide with his assumptions about life, love, and truth. Have his foundational beliefs been the cause of his personal losses? As he searches for answers, Anna's example of loving integrity keeps him coming back. Or maybe it's her homemade pies. Yet to risk re-thinking his core convictions for a chance at personal peace would expose his soul and tear open an old wound.
Others in the neighbourhood, too, are under Anna’s thrall – a teacher facing a crisis pregnancy, a crusty cat-lady, a cancer-ridden conspiracy theorist, a Cambodian immigrant family. Each is touched by the power of her obscure and ordinary life.

This was such a rewarding and lovely book to read that I’m getting one for my mother, too! The stories and even lessons learned are just what any heart needs. Funny antics, sweet moments, heart breaking times and all through it are comforts of animals we sometimes take for granted. Everyone would love reading this – I highly recommend it! This author puts her heart out there and tells us how her world was changed by these two fabulous felines. Even the secondary characters grabbed my heart and made me smile. (Alberta!) Loved every minute of it and is now a bookshelf keeper.
