In this inspiring and joyous book, "New York Times" bestselling author Geneen Roth introduces her remarkable twenty-pound cat, Mister Blanche, and her beloved father, Bernard, as she takes readers deep into the story of how each finally taught her to love without reservation and accept that she might someday lose those whom she believed she couldn't live without. Told with warmth and wit, "The Craggy Hole in My Heart and The Cat Who Fixed It" is a poignant and funny story about how to live with love--and never live without it.
