Lovely short story of cats and prehistoric people

Fleeing her home, with Yannis at the oars, a small cat on her lap, and her children by her side, Melita hopes to find a better, safer life. Linda Dean’s enjoyable short book, Angel Bones, follows Melita’s journey to its surprising end.
Details of primitive skills feed naturally into this tale, and the characters of an ancient world all seem very real, from selfish Andros trying to make a buck, to sweet little Eleni, dreaming of fun, friends and felines. Humanity hasn’t changed much over time—and neither have cats.
 Mystical, beautiful, and gently intriguing, the story builds a convincing sense of time and place then throws in real danger, real terror and real hope. It’s a beautiful story for adults and children alike, haunting, lyrical, and nicely anchored in the findings of modern historians. It seems cats may well have lived among mankind far longer than we thought, and this book pictures that past relationship convincingly and pleasingly.
 
Disclosure: I was lucky enough to find this when it was free—a lovely book!

Cats are a unique breed! I owned more than one myself.
