The Witness by Robert Westall
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


On a bitter winter night in the land of Jordan, a beautiful golden cat tries to hide from the wind. Lost and alone, she is desperate to find a safe place to give birth to her kittens. At last she finds a stable and takes shelter inside - with a man and his gentle wife, who, like the cat, is about to give birth. The cat is witness to the arrival of the Christ child and forms a unique bond with the Holy Family.
