Magnificat Synopsis

The boy walked down the aisle and as he passed the cat he bent down and gently stroked her back with two fingers. In that second, Ben felt something akin to an electric shock. The cat stopped her grooming and looked up at him with large amber eyes. She had felt it too.

When a little cat finds herself in an unfamiliar and frightening town, she finds refuge in the local church - and so does local boy, Ben, whose life with his mother is becoming strained. The unlikely pair form a close relationship and soon find comfort in each other until Ben’s beloved cat is snatched from outside his home. As Magnificat struggles to survive a life in the wild, Ben desperately searches for her, refusing to give up even when it looks like she’s gone forever...

Beautiful illustrations from animal portrait artist France Bauduin accompany the chapters of this gentle story, told through the eyes of a cat. The sister novel to White Chin, Marilyn Edwards has built up a loyal fanbase who enjoy her tales exploring the relationship between humans and animals.
