New York Times Bestseller

When Charlotte’s husband is offered a job in Oman, he persuades her to leave comfortable, rural England and join him. But playing tennis, avoiding coffee mornings and being a perfect wife and mother in the Middle East is not enough.

Charlotte convinces a local veterinary clinic to employ her and throws herself into assisting the vets, overcoming her fear of birds and rehoming hundreds of stray cats and dogs. Cyclones, earthquakes, transvestites, unwanted paramours, cultural differences, tears and laughter follow as seven years flash by.

Will Charlotte stay, or gather up the motley crew of pets she has collected and head for home?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Delightful story of the writer’s life in Oman after her husband accepted a job there. Her adventures in a foreign country with her husband and daughter and their numerous visitors were exciting and often filled with laughter. Because of her love for animals, she went to work at a veterinary clinic and relates incidents that happened there. She definitely has paw prints on her heart.


This is an excellent book! Very entertaining and a heartwarming story. A great read for animal lovers.


I found this book so very interesting. The author and her clinic friends give me much hope for a part of the world where I dared not think there may be any hope in this life for the precious little creatures that live there. Thank you for this wonderful read. Again, Oman is such a stunningly beautiful location on our planet.


Every page was fascinating, learning about a different culture, and the loving enjoyment of pets. It is easy to sympathize with the ups and downs of the writer. I loved all the new vocabulary words along the way. I recommend it to all armchair travelers and pet lovers. I feel it was extremely well-written from a first person perspective. I loved it and was sorry it had to end!


Brought both smiles and tears to me, but I enjoyed it from start to finish. Charlotte you truly inspire me. Great book.
