A Visit From Miss Marvin

A Visit From Miss Marvin

by Donna Jean Paff

Every day is a gift. Every change is a lesson. Every new beginning is a blessing…

When Mr. Smith rescues a tiny gray kitten stranded in his old oak tree, he has no idea how his life is about to change. Lonely since the passing of his wife, Mr. Smith blossoms under the loving care and attention of the devoted new friend he names Miss Marvin. But life has it ups and downs. After a fall, he and Miss Marvin learn they must leave their beloved house, their stately oak tree, and the tire swing in the shady back yard for a new home in an assisted living facility. Afraid of leaving his memories behind, Mr. Smith soon learns through the eyes of Miss Marvin that many wonderful experiences lie ahead. A Visit from Miss Marvin is a book for all ages. Children, adults, and seniors will learn there is joy in every stage of life, and that every new beginning is truly a blessing.
