The premise of Lonnie Hull DuPont’s book Kit Kat & Lucy: The Country Cats Who Changed a City Girl’s World sounds like a quaint Hallmark movie: a poet from San Francisco moves with her husband to a farmhouse in Michigan to be closer to her aging parents. But Kit Kat & Lucy is not fiction – it is a memoir, focusing on DuPont’s two lovable cats.
DuPont’s words flow elegantly from the pages, and her writing style has a calm, gentle atmosphere. The book is more than just pretty prose; it is also the story of a family embracing new things and new adventures in life. And who knew that two animals – Kit Kat and Lucy – could be such strong, complex characters in DuPont’s book?
If you’re a cat lover, you’ll no doubt relate to DuPont’s story. And if cats aren’t your thing (or you’ve read too many articles about cat scratch disease), you’ll still get a glimpse of the sweetness that these felines brought to DuPont’s life. Kit Kat and Lucy is the kind of book one might like to read on a cold winter day, while snuggled on the couch with a warm cup of tea nearby.
