    Oscar the cat has a very special skill. An otherwise ordinary cat—he'd sooner give you his back or a sideways glance than curl up on your lap—Oscar has the uncanny ability to predict when people are about to die. Adopted by staff members at Steere House nursing home when he was a kitten, the three year-old cat has presided over the deaths of more than twenty-five nursing home residents thus far.

    Story

    This is more about how families, nurses and the doctor care for people with severe dementia. Oscar is more of a background character, but it adds interest. How can he know when someone is about to pass away? There was a lot of information on Alzheimer's disease and how it affects the caregivers and families of the patient. I learned a lot from this book, even though it is a little depressing.

    It was Leigh Novak's second chance. She left behind a faithless husband to begin a new life with her young son Jeremy—as a family doctor in a small northern California town. But Hartwood held a bitter welcome. Leigh's first patient, a child, died mysteriously in her office. And soon Leigh was too busy to spend much time with Jeremy. It seemed her only friend was Nora—the woman who took such good care of the town's little children....

    You know what's going on with each character, which means you know the answer to the mysteries. I was emotional with this book, feeling angry and sad with what was going on with the characters. It's a good read and I hope I never come across a daycare like this one!
