I was very excited when I found out Marie Phillips had just published her story about her life working as a saint for the feral barncats at Umass Amherst. Growing up in Amherst, I got to know Marie during some of the 16 years she spent helping the feral cats on campus, and truly believe her to be the most caring, selfless, dedicated person there is. As a person, she is truly one of a kind; intelligent, well spoken, with a heart of solid gold. What I found out after starting to read her book, was that her writing talent was equally as remarkable. The story she tells is immersive, heart wrenching and heart warming at the same time. She takes the reader into a secret world of barncats at the Umass Amherst campus, one that very few people have ever been privy to. If you are a cat lover, or want to discover a fascinating place and story that has never been told, I would highly recommend this book.

I'm a cat lover and graduate of UMass, Amherst. I sat in classes in Tobin and Bartlett and wandered these grounds from 1995-1998. The story she tells is so full of life, humor, caring and it is heartening to know of people like her.

Very odd, but very engaging (and well-written) book, an extended true story about a woman's devotion to some feral cats on a university campus.
