A Cat in the Window by Derek Tangye is a charming book that tells the story of Monty the cat. Monty comes to the Tangye’s in the early days of their marriage, and even though Jeannie was a cat lover, it took some convincing for Derek to agree to allow a cat into the house. Of course, eventually Derek became Monty’s biggest fan.

This book also chronicles how this couple gave up their busy life in London and settled down on a remote flower farm on the rocky coast of Cornwall. Derek Tangye went on to write a series of books about their life at Minack and the various animals that shared that life with them, but for me, Monty remains special.

Yes, A Cat In the Window is an unabashedly sentimental look at the calming rhythm of times past, yet Derek Tangye effortlessly re-creates the beauty and magic of this special place and gently draws his readers in. ( )
