About A SENSE OF PURPOSE by Russell H. Plante:
The struggle to survive, the determination to complete something meaningful, and the intertwining of our lives with the relevance to others are the heart and soul of this insightful book. Orphaned on the streets of Manhattan, a cat named Chester begins a life-changing journey to a dark wetland forest on the coast of Maine. An ancient neglected graveyard, sketches by a young artist revealing the secret of a lost father, a life-threatening blizzard, the arduous search for a missing friend, the struggles of a feral mother cat with her four kittens, and terrifying encounters under the halo of a moonlit night are all manifestations that forever change Chester’s outlook on life. Inspired by actual events, this is a philosophical story for all ages about life’s journey from the perspective of a cat — a journey that teaches us the things we do in life, no matter how small, can affect others in so many ways and that every living being has a sense of purpose…
