Overview

From the author of the “luminous [and] gorgeous” (Susan Wiggs) Haunting Jasmine comes a glorious new novel that reaches straight into to the heart to celebrate the resilience of the human spirit…

“I wonder how my carefully planned life could have tipped so far out of balance?”

Into the quaint town of Fairport on Shelter Island comes Lily Byrne, a young widow who is not so much running from the old but rather edging toward something new and indefinable. Here in the peaceful Pacific Northwest, newly engaged in her vintage clothing boutique, she hides from the world. But Lily knows that solitude can’t sustain her forever. Somehow, somewhere, something’s got to give. It does, with the unexpected arrival of an exuberant little cat.

As Lily searches for the cat’s true home, she embarks on a journey just as unpredictable—one of healing and renewal that opens up a whole new world in this small island community she now calls home. Saved by the hidden graces of others, she even allows herself to fall in love again. But how much of this is serendipity? How much is destiny? As Lily starts looking at herself, and her life, in an enlightening new way, she can’t help but also wonder, how long can such good fortune last?

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
“Ben and Lily are an absolute pleasure to be around. They may be grieving but they are also living, growing, and embracing the possibilities life is making available to them. I loved that. [Kitty’s] view point offers universal wisdom and a deeper and more profound understanding of human nature than is normally available to mere people. She weaves her magic within the shop, touching and enhancing many lives…..This book offers charm, romance, and a sweet and hopeful look at second chances. I thoroughly enjoyed it.” –All About Romance

"A wonderful story filled with unique and likeable characters. Banerjee’s colorful and at times almost lyrical writing, along with some elements of magical realism, enhances the reading experience. Charming, lovely, poignant, filled with hope, delightful, and – well, enchanting: I just can’t praise Enchanting Lily enough. This book is going on my list of all time favorite cat books." —The Conscious Cat

"Banerjee had great success with her previous novel, Haunting Jasmine; readers will enjoy Enchanting Lily just as much. This is a wonderful story with lovable characters who are trying to start fresh after tragedy touches their lives. Readers will fall head over heels for a four-legged character who almost upstages the two-legged leads."—Romantic Times

    From a cat and human's point of view

    This book goes back and forth between a cat and the main character Lily's point of view. Lily is recovering from the loss of her husband and trying to get her new shop going with vintage clothing. I would have liked to know more about her past and wished the author would delve further into her and the cat's character. Not a deep plot, but a pleasant read. I could see this cat or another visiting other humans who suffer loss and helping them move forward in future books.

    Not enough of the book in the sample

    I couldn't tell if I liked the book or not. There was NONE of the book itself in the sample!!

    B & N if you want us to buy the book at least give us something to look at!

    I was able to read more of the book on the author's website.
