Cat's Pilgrimage

HarperCollins Canada

The author of the acclaimed To All Appearances a Lady has done it again—produced a magical, multi-layered page-turner of a novel that scales vast imaginative heights. Cat’s Pilgrimage is the story of 14-year-old Cathreen, who, estranged from her mother and fleeing the consequences of a schoolmate’s murder, escapes to England to live with her father. There, she is swept up into a place where good and evil, justice, vengeance and enduring love vie for a place in the human heart, a place where the present brushes up against mythology and an all-seeing cat named Cutthroat watches over them all. A powerful modern-day fairytale, Cat’s Pilgrimage will appeal to lovers of contemporary literary fiction with a fantastical touch.
