The book cover gave me some real fairy tale vibes. It was the juxtaposition between the life she lived and the life she was living.

Book Review: Ellie’s Magical Cat by James Goddard
We all have heard that “ If you want something with all your heart, the whole world conspires to make it happen”. Dreams have power and this proved accurate for Ellie who dreamt of her late husband and her dreams came true through her cat.
It revolves around a couple Ellie and Hugo who met through their shared love of dancing. They danced together and were living a happy married life for several years. They grow old together but one unfortunate day Hugo passed away and left Ellie with their memories and photographs to remember him.
Later Ellie gets a cat whom she named after her husband Hugo because according to her they both have similar grey hair. The cat accompanies her everywhere, little did she know that many adventures are waiting for her with her cat or with Hugo.
The plot was really exciting and fun. The story has a twist when Ellie was dreaming about his husband and suddenly a patch of light comes through the window and touches the cat’s shadow and the magic happens.
The magic was beyond imagination, her cat turned into Hugo and everything around came alive. They danced all night, they roamed everywhere they shared memories of the past. It doesn’t happen once it happens again and again. She waited every night for him and surprisingly he appeared every night and enjoyed their love for dancing.
When it comes to readability, it was an interesting and emotional read for me. Based on the author’s fantasy, the characters were really creative, and sometimes you feel related to the emotions Ellie has inside.
I finished the book in less than an hour. Overall it was fun to read such a heartwarming book.
