It will make you wonder about life, love and the existence of a higher power. It will break your heart in half and put it back together again.

 From Mrs.D.

Sometimes noble things slip through our hands for a reason, just like in this sweet story, “Charm: An Amazing Story of a Little Black Cat,” written by Leyla Atke.

Who doesn’t like stories about cats? These furry creatures always bring a smile to my face and brighten my life. I’ve had cats ever since I can remember. I enjoy their strange behavior and the power they have over humans. Most of us think that we adopt cats, but the reality is that cats adopt people. My cats always knew how to wrap me around their magic paw and teach me how to be their servant for life.

When I purchased “Charm: An Amazing Story of a Little Black Cat,” I immediately knew that this award-winning children’s book would capture my soul. The story is based on true events, and the author takes us on a ride full of both happy and sad emotions. As they observe the unique bond between humans and cats, young readers will learn that God always works in mysterious ways by sending us something special when we least expect it. That is what happened to the girl when she found an abandoned kitten. Two pals quickly fell in love with each other and developed a great trust, which leads us to believe that animals should be set free, regardless of the danger awaiting them in the outside world. I share the girl’s belief and let my cats wander as they please. Luckily for me, none of them shared Charm’s fate, and they still enjoy their freedom.

One day the girl’s beloved cat disappeared. Devastated by her loss, the girl would not give up on her friend until she found what had happened. Searching the entire neighborhood, sadly, she only found his remains. The loss and guilt broke her heart, but a year later, something remarkable happened. Another special kitten came into her life almost the same way that Charm did. Would the girl heal from her loss? Were they destined to meet? Or maybe Charm miraculously came back as a little kitten to help heal the girl from her pain? Would she set her new kitten free as she had Charm? Not to disclose more of this heartwarming tale, I can say that this story is filled with love for animals, mysticism, and positive messages. This charming book can definitely spark a needed conversation about life and death, loss and acceptance. Full of contrasts and contradictions, it has great educational value for children and parents. The text is easy to read and understand for any age. Readers will enjoy the simplicity of the storyline and fantastic accompanying illustrations, done by the author, who poured her heart and soul into her delightful tale. I am convinced this poignant story will touch many hearts, as it touched mine. Remember, there is always a second chance to make things right.

From the Author

Charm: An Amazing Story of a Little Black Cat is the gripping account of a remarkable experience in author Leyla Atke's life. It is a story that tells how things are hard to acquire and easy to lose when even slightly neglected. It is a story that makes the reader think about the existence of a higher power and the other world. It is a story about how anyone can be entrusted a certain mission from above...Or simply, it is a story about a miracle... Sometimes miracles do happen in our lives and Atke's miracle begins when she finds and saves a little black kitten from the middle of a busy road, where cars speed by almost hitting him. She takes the kitten home and named him Charm. But one day, Charm goes missing. When Atke finds him, it's too late. But then something amazing happens and restores Atke's faith. You'll have to pick up a copy of the book to find out what that is!
