The magical, romantic tale of Christmas, Cornwall... and cats.
There's always been a cat at Enysyule, and there always will be.
When her boyfriend dumps her and she unexpectedly sells the manuscript of a novel she's been writing secretly at night, Jessamine Pike decides it's time for a serious life overhaul.
Jess moves into Enysyule, a centuries-old cottage in Cornwall, and begins the process of renovating the rundown house by day and working on her next book by night, planning to have both finished in time for the holidays. She's got good company: a beautiful, arrogant tomcat stalks around like he owns the place, and seems very sceptical of Jess' tenancy.
But Enysyule has its mysteries. Local legends tell of a spirit that inhabits the area, and an ancient standing stone that keeps watch over the valley. As Christmas comes closer and closer, Jess uncovers treasures from Enysyule's past... and becomes involved in a fight for its future.
For Jess hasn't only found a cottage. She's found a story that's been going on for five hundred years. A story about land, love, friendship, the Yuletide... and one remarkable cat.
