In a world of magic and mystery, cats are paired with witches at the age of maturity. These pairings are often powerful and sometimes even fated. When a fierce thunderstorm blows through the land, a litter of kittens are born that will eventually change the world…..
Shadow has lived all of his seven years in the comforting presence of Granny Willow, an aging witch who spends her time helping villagers and strangers alike. When Shadow came along, she found his love and strength a welcome gift, yet she knows deep in her heart that Shadow was not born for her. On a cold, blustery night, a new storm rages, and with it comes a new revelation. A young woman, distraught and devastated, stands at Granny Willow’s doorstep with her broken and bleeding daughter in her arms. This young child, Sophie, had found herself the victim of malice and spite at the claws of an alarmingly powerful cat. Granny Willow, with magic in her veins and kindness in her heart, heals the girl, and discovers the child’s fated connection to her own cat, Shadow. When Gorlan arrives and tries to take Sophie again, Granny must save them both with her own sacrifice.
Shadow is left out into the world, uncertain of himself, his gifts or even his very nature. Untrained in the ways of magic or witches, he has no understanding of what has transpired – or what he can do about it.
In an epic journey that spans years and friends, Shadow will learn and grow, discovering who he is and what he is meant to do… and somewhere out there, far beyond the woodlands and hills, there is a young girl who just might make a Fine Witch for A Cat.
A Fine Witch For A Cat explores the issues of growing up after bereavement, in a world where friend becomes foe and family has become the enemy. Suitable for ages 9 and up, this is the first children’s novel from author Catherine Callie.
