Editorial Reviews


"Cat Born to the Purple is a poetic tale with a flair for description and a welcoming, hopeful, and loving spiritual heart. This is the fourth volume of the Yeshua's Cats series, each featuring a different cat whose life intersects with that of Yeshua ben Yosef (Jesus of Nazareth). Textile work is a common thread (pun intended) through this novel, and everything from the cruelty of the murex harvesting and dyeing process to the intricacy of the weaving patterns finds deeper meaning in the story and the theology . . . [The kitten named] Purple is an appealing narrator, with a recognizable-yet-alien felinoid point of view that adds a valuable perspective to the novel . . . [Cat] is full of warmth and deep loving-kindness, and Francisco's conception of Yeshua shines with the charisma and compassion that explain plausibly why people would willingly drop everything and follow him.
~ Indie Reader, 5 stars

"Cat Born to the Purple is one of the most powerful accounts of biblical times in Christian literature. Too many Christian historical novels are dry presentations, but Cat Born to the Purple remains attentive to biblical history and gospel while providing an original, compelling set of insights with a cat's-eye take. Purple successfully captures the social and political nuances of early times, and places them in the unique context of a woman recovering from being stoned and interacting with cats and humans destined to form the nexus of Christianity. It's rare to find the 4th book in a series just as gripping a read as its predecessors, and equally extraordinary to find such an addition both a stand-alone achievement and an impressive expansion of themes presented in prior books. A truly unique voice!"
~ Midwest Book Review

"Few depictions of biblical tales and religious history are as unique and insightful as the books written by C.L. Francisco. By stepping . . . across the [feline] species boundary all the moral and religious quandaries of the story are enhanced. Yeshua functions as a passionate and profoundly wise character; Francisco does a wonderful job humanizing this powerful individual. Yeshua's cat, Mari, has a fiercely smart tongue as a narrator.

Eliana, an incredibly strong woman who has been brutally treated by her family, provides inspiration to readers of any kind - young, old, religious or not. She is a fighter who doesn't let the horrors of the world break her. The denouement certainly comes as a surprise, and the story gets dark in certain moments, but that only sets up the reader for an even more satisfying finish. Francisco has struck on something very interesting with this series, and Cat Born to the Purple in particular. Honesty, morality, religion and history all wrapped up in the same book don't come around all that often, and certainly not in such an original, entertaining package."
~ Self Publishing Review, 5 stars
