Overview
Jake Wilkerson, a disillusioned young pastor who is an expert at hiding his fears, takes on a new assignment at a small rural church in Coudersport, Pennsylvania--which is a far piece from anywhere and full of curiously odd and eccentric people. His first day on the job, he is adopted by Petey--a cat of unknown origins and breed--but a very sentient cat who believes that he is on a mission from God to redeem Jake and bring him back to the truth. Jake must confront his doubts early on when he meets Emma Grainger, a single woman and a veterinarian who dismisses all Christians as "those people." Then, Tassy, a young runaway with a secret, arrives at the door of the church looking for a place of refuge. How does Jake deal with this runaway and his interest in Dr. Grainger? More importantly, can Jake rekindle his faith? Petey does his best to lead all people to the truth, in a most subtle and feline way.

Kraus (The Dog That Talked to God) gives equal time to felines in a tale of a minister who's lost his faith. Jake Wilkerson, the new pastor of a church in rural Pennsylvania, has a secret: he has deep doubts about God. Into his life saunters Petey, a stray cat with an internal sense of mission, who quickly makes himself at home in the parsonage. Also into Jake's life walks Tassy, a 19-year-old who has been abandoned on a Pennsylvania roadside by her boyfriend. And there's veterinarian Emma Grainger, who's got an overweight bulldog and a traumatic secret. All three get to learn something through Petey's presence. Nobody does quirky small-town churches like Philip Gulley, but Kraus is good. He's also good at depicting the internal dry spells of faith. While it's harder to believe that a cat will walk with its owner than to believe it is a sign from God, the suspension of disbelief is most enjoyable. (Apr.)
