Love Saves the Day is a novel written from three points of view. The primary narrator is Prudence, a brown tabby rescued from a deserted construction site on Manhattan's Lower East Side. Prudence is a keen observer of humans and knows them better than they know themselves at times. "Humans best understand the truth of things if they come at it indirectly. Like how sometimes the best way to catch a mouse that's right in front of you is to back up before you pounce." You'll find yourself smiling, and sometimes laughing out loud, at Prudence's insight into human nature and astute descriptions of her world. From the "wonderful heated cat bed" in a place called "Home Office," to Prudence's dismissal of a self-cleaning litterbox ("It scared me so much that I started going on the living room rug just to avoid it") Cooper's love for cats and understanding of their nature and emotional lives, tempered with a sense of humor, is evident throughout the book.
Loves Saves the Day begins when one day Sarah, Prudence's human, doesn't come home from work. Prudence's world falls apart. For a few days, a neighbor feeds her, then Sarah's daugher Laura, who hardly ever came to visit, arrives with her husband. They're both carrying boxes.Read more ›
Prudence the cat's point of view sets up and drives the story in wonderful ways: we get quirky details of the habits and preoccupations of the principal human characters (Laura, her husband Josh, and her mother Sarah), so that by the time we get into their heads, we feel we know things about them they don't (yet) realize themselves. It also forces us to reconsider perspective, as Prudence navigates her environments from the vacant lot where she is rescued as a kitten, to Sarah's bohemian apartment and life as a mature, somewhat disorganized single woman of various passions, to Laura and Josh's posh if somewhat spartan apartment and the tense growing pains of their marriage. Prudence is herself a fully realized character, accessible and complex, yet not anthropomorphic: she retains her feline integrity throughout and if you've ever lived with a cat, you will nod in agreement often at her insights.Read more ›
Sweet little Prudence has completely stolen my heart. Her voice and the way she sees us crazy humans is exactly how I would imagine a cat's thought process to be. It is obviously how Gwen Cooper knows cats. Some of her observations had me laughing out loud, while others simply broke my heart. The pets left behind when an owner dies don't understand why they've been abandoned, and the way Prudence spent every moment in her new home surrounded by the Sarah-boxes, thinking that if she kept remembering Sarah she would return, fearing that if the scent of her and Sarah together disappeared Sarah would never find her way back...everytime I think about it I get a lump in my throat. Prudence's simple view of love is something we could all learn from; the love only a pet can provide.
Sarah and Laura's relationship teared me up as well, mostly because my own mother is my best friend in the world and I can't imagine not having this extremely important relationship in my life. I kept wondering what could have happened to drive such a wedge between a mother and daughter that had once been so close, knowing only that it had something to do with their neighbors the Mandelbaums and their cat Honey, and when the reason was revealed I was stunned.Read more ›
