"We're just going to look." Helen Brown had no intention of adopting a pet when she brought her sons, Sam and Rob, to visit a friend's new kittens. But the runt of the litter was irresistible, with her overlarge ears and dainty chin.When Cleo was delivered weeks later, she had no way of knowing that her new family had just been hit by a tragedy. Helen was sure she couldn't keep her--until she saw something she thought had vanished from the earth forever: her son's smile. The reckless, rambunctious kitten stayed.Through happiness and heartbreak, changes and new beginnings, Cleo turned out to be the unlikely glue that affectionately held Helen's family together. Rich in wisdom, wit, heart, and healing, here is the story of a cat with an extraordinary gift for knowing just where she was needed most."A remarkable memoir. . .I realized that Helen Brown didn't break my heart at all--she opened it." --Beth Hoffman, New York Times bestselling author of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt"An absolute must." --Cat World"The next Marley &Me. Even non cat-lovers will be moved." --Good Housekeeping

I will start off with a quick generalization that I really liked this story. The author, Helen Brown, gives a very direct and honest portrait of her family from her time as a young mother in a struggling marriage to becoming a successful woman who finds the courage to love again in many different facets. I found myself rooting for Helen, mourning with her, and learning about people in all their flawed beauty as she did. And she's just one member of this wonderful family.

Then there is the namesake of the book, and quite possibly the little monarch of the clan, Cleo. Truly something special, Cleo is always there for this family when she is needed most. As the author says, Cleo gives her son his smile back after a horrid tragedy. She is there to stave off depression for Helen in the worst of times, and she even gives a little dating guidance when the time comes. Long after Cleo gives Helen's son, Rob, his smile back, she is there to nurse him back to health when he is hit with a life threatening disease. What got to me most was Rob's dreams in which Cleo told him that she would be there to help him make friends and, much later, when he has a very prophetic dream about what she was sent to teach him in her lifetime.

Overall, I got more out of this book than I expected and was very pleasantly surprised by the depth and candor the author bestows.

My son was also hit by a Blue Ford Escort when he was 9 yrs. old. He was badly injured and had to have reconstructive surgeries, skin grafts, etc., but I didn't lose him. Thank God as he is my only child. I didn't know if I could read this book after Sam was killed. I kept going and am so glad I did. I, as did Helen, end up divorced. Something like this really puts a strain on a marriage, some make it and some don't. I never remarried, but have been in a long term relationship for which I am grateful. I could identify with Helen in so many ways. Cleo was a remarkable cat, her gut instincts made things somewhat more tolerable for this family. I really liked this book, lots of inspiration, lessons to be learned, and lots of things to look at differently (as Rob) pointed out while ill. You don't have to be a cat lover to read this book, it's a great read for anybody. I hope that Helen and her family do not have to go through anymore trying times like they have in the past.

I have to say that this was a difficult book to read. The very real pain and grief that the author endured when her oldest son was killed, is almost unbearable. I had to take it in small doses. But it is joyful fun when Helen and Rob start watching the antics of their new kitten, and learn to laugh again. I was surprised that the editors of the book had let all this raw pain and emotion stay in. But, as I said in my review of the author's second book, 'Cats and Daughters', which in part tells how the writing of 'Cleo' came about--the author had actually deleted the original material in favor of a more upbeat story. It was the editors that encouraged her to put the emotion and pain back in, which actually makes the telling of the story much more powerful. Once I got through it the first time, I re-read it again. I recommend this to anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one. In the end it turns out to be a story of hope and renewal and joy--carried in on little cat feet.

Love, love, love this book. Second time I've bought it (don't know where my first copy went) If you are a cat person, this book will have you bawling your eyes out, crying tears of both sadness and joy - at what a beloved pet can do in a family that is going through tragedy and broken hearts. Truly a wonderful and inspiring book

I seldom write reviews for books, and rarely keep them after reading them. This is a keeper. I loved this book from beginning to end. Helen Brown is an accomplished writer that relays a story well. Her story is told with feeling and insight into her life as a young wife and mother. Cleo is adorable and so easy to fall in love with, as described by the author. By the end of the tale, when you know how the story must end, you cry along with the family over the loss of the beloved pet and family member. Through the loss of her son and, eventually, her cat, Helen Brown tells how one family grows through their grief, without losing the memory of those lost. I sent this book to my daughter and told her that she must read it.

I loved this book. I like real life stories and this one captured my interest as I also love cats. Helen Brown didn't shy away from sharing the intense grief of losing a child with the world in this book and the healing that her acquisition of a kitten gave her. Being a dog person, her new kitten, chosen by the son she lost weeks before, was a challenge at first but Cleo the cat won her heart and converted the whole family into cat lovers. It might be said that only cat people could love this book, but I challenge that. The rich tapestry of personal grief mixed with feline antics means you will laugh and you will cry along with the author as her tale unfolds.
I liked the book so much I bought the second novel, too - After Cleo: Came Jonah.

When I finished this book, I cried, and I haven't cried in a decade. What a heartwarming story about love and relationships - between both humans and with their 4 legged family members. I had no idea what I was getting in to when I bought this book, but the cover photo had me hooked before I ever opened the cover. I've purchased several copies of Cleo that will become holiday gifts for all my cat loving friends.
I should have guessed it would be a good book when I saw the languages that were available in this book. This is a treasure. As a therapist I see how animals often help their owners through grief, but Cleo was even more. Cleo was a spiritual gift-and Helen Brown's story is both touching and humorous. I hope Ms. Brown writes more. This book was worth every penny. I have her second book too and it is just as good.
