This is a fantastic book. I still smile, when I think about it. It has a very easygoing writing style, it is fast to read, it is not a heavy read and the story is definitely enjoyable. I give it 5 out of 5 stars and definitely recommend it. Btw the book is also available in German, Italian and French. This is a really good read for a fiction cat tale. There is a lot of hard times for Solomon and without giving any spoilers away be prepared for chapters 9 and 10 with tissues galore. I thought the story was well written and covered Ellens relationship troubles very well.
Some parts of the book are quiet predictable especially towards the end chapters, but nevertheless this is a book well worth a read especially if you are a cat lover. Solomons Tale will touch your heart. A must for cat lovers This truly is a heartwarming tale. Anyone who has been loved by a cat will understand the warmth, affection and understanding of Solomon. The book made me laugh, the book made me cry.
Breathtaking story. I got to the end of the first chapter. By this point, the following has already has been mentioned; stardust, psi sense, spirit world, angels- more specifically, the 'angel of shooting stars', comfort angels, healing light and healing gift. The writing style also isn't for me I'm afraid.

Jul 10, Lesley Halliday rated it really liked it. Nov 17, Michelle Wiles rated it really liked it. This book was based partly on truth and partly fiction. I found it a very heart warming and touching tale. Sep 24, Celine Kim rated it it was amazing. This book was so touching and always manages to bring tears to my eyes.
Reading rated it it was amazing Shelves: favourites , reads , at-home , animals. I loved this book so much! It was so sweet and I really connected with the story. I also thought the ending was absolutely perfect and loved how the author had based the cats on the cats she used to have and spoke a bit about them. Definetly would suggest people read this book and I think this is one of the few books that I'll most likely come back and read again :.
I really wanted to like this book. I love cats and have grown up with them, and it was a cute story. There were cute moments and the book had some nice paragraphs, and the end was a real tear-jerker.

If you've ever lost a pet, you can't not be moved by the ending. But unfortunately the writing got badly in the way of enjoying the book more, and that's why I cannot give it more than 2 stars. The writing style was very simplistic and basic, so I was quite surprised to find out that the author has I really wanted to like this book.
The writing style was very simplistic and basic, so I was quite surprised to find out that the author has published several books before writing this one, as it felt like it was someone who'd never written a book before. It didn't really help that I knew it was supposed to be written from the point of view of a cat - you could still write it well, despite that! The characters were very black-and-white, cardboard ones, either perfect, kind, warm people, or very bad, mean, violent ones.
Life doesn't work like that. The events seemed not to logically, naturally follow from the previous ones.

It felt rather like the author sat down and thought "So what crazy unexpected thing should I let happen to Solomon next, what's the next big adventure? At times it felt like I was reading something that was meant for children who don't yet care about whether the writing is good or bad, as long as the story is cute and there's pets in it.
But then again if it were a children's book, it probably wouldn't have things like the two cats furiously mating everywhere, several times a day and most of all liking doing it on top of the washing machine Dec 02, LindyLouMac rated it really liked it. When I was approached by the publisher to see if I was interested in reading and reviewing Solomon's Tale I admit I had my doubts.
Very Short Stories For Children With Morals
Firstly I normally steer away from young adult novels and secondly books written from an animals point of view. However loving cats and missing having my own there was something about it that I found appealing so I said yes.

Thankfully I did and thanks Avon for giving me the opportunity to read this heart warming spiritual story proving to me just how close a relationship one can have with a cat. Solomon is the hero of the novel and the narrator of the story of how he saved a family in crisis. Solomon had once been the pet of a little girl called Ellen, now a young woman with a child and in an unhappy marriage. She needs help which is why the angels send Solomon back to earth to find her and guide her through troubled times. You may not believe in angels or the concepts Sheila Jeffries writes about, but read with an open mind you cannot help but find it emotional and uplifting.
A simple little story that covers some big emotional issues in a unique style. In conclusion this is a wonderful spiritual tale for young adults but one that will be enjoyed by all animal lovers, young or old. Jan 19, Liz Chapman rated it liked it. This book is definitely a girly read and in retrospective ,a little bit like an American book I read on a similar story line.
From the cover it was not quite what I expected. I was not sure whether this was a teenage or adult book. In his first life the black and white cat Solomon lives with a little girl Ellen with whom he forges a close bond. Solomon likes to sit on the piano while Ellen plays well but can never be persuaded to perform in public. Sadly Solomon dies because it is not his time This book is definitely a girly read and in retrospective ,a little bit like an American book I read on a similar story line.
Sadly Solomon dies because it is not his time to be with Ellen.
Solomon is sent back to earth by an angel to find Ellen who is now a grown woman married to an alcoholic Joe and has a small son John. He is a Healing cat and his job is to help Ellen and become the family protector. This story deals with abuse ,homelessness and the loss of everything you hold dear. I did not get on with the fact that Solomon actually behaved at times like a human and had conversations. Cats communicate but do not use human logic and reason to motivate their actions.
The psychic side of the book was fair enough and I know Healing cats exist because I had one myself although he behaved like a cat not a human. I think this book is not for everyone but if you have a spiritual side you will enjoy it Jan 22, Kate rated it it was amazing. This is a real tear-jerker in places but I loved it. It was beautifully and simply written with a page-turning storyline and it appealed to the inner kid in me as well as the inner cat!
I did think the business with the kittens was left at a loose end and expected one of them would appear later on. Maybe that would have been a bit too neat but I was worried about them especially as a seed of doubt was sewn with what Joe actually did with them. We meet Penney the pit bull, abandoned at her most vulnerable but who found love with a couple who take her everywhere- even to work.
There is Skittles, a terrified Shih Tzu who is rescued from a puppy farm but finds love and canine companionship with Jay, a large bearded Collie and we hear how a three-legged dog called Mick taught Andrea life lessons about living in the moment and thriving despite health challenges. Andrea also reveals how working with dogs has helped her on her own journey through chronic pain and fertility issues and how the dogs she has encountered have touched her life in different ways, often when she needed it most.
Andrea's tender tales of human-canine connection will touch your soul and remind you of why dogs play such central roles in the lives of their human companions. But one thing is for certain: every hug will touch your heart.
