I received a copy of Solomon's Tale by Shelia Jeffries from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Solomon's Tale is a gripping story with strong emotion, humor, and gritty relationship themes. Sheila Jeffries has also woven a thread of spirituality throughout the tale, which focuses on reincarnation, angels, and how the soul survives death. Solomon, a cat who can see angels, who is chosen to be born again to help a family endure traumas of separation and poverty, narrates the quirky but heartwarming adventure. Solomon embarks on a perilous journey to find his home. He falls in love with another cat, Jessica, whose outrageous behavior brings life and humor into the challenging situations he must face, including the repossession of his family home, relocation to a cramped caravan, and a lonely, desperate time of surviving the wild. A tear-jerker with an interesting twist at the end, Solomon's Tale will make you laugh and cry and lift your spirits. It was inspired by two real cats and will appeal to fans of cats and spiritual fiction.
This is a different book than I've read before. It's written from the perspective of Solomon. We hear about how cats can sense how people feel and if they're good or bad. Solomon has a very good sense of where his Ellen lives and finds a way to her. He has an angel and sees other angels along the way. We learn how hard it is for Solomon to full fill his mission and promises. Solomon and Ellen have so much in common that helps them each to cope with the situations they find themselves in.
