Have you seen Marie by Sandra Cisneros “I wanted to write a book that would help heal other people who are in pain from a death. I was living through that pain myself, and writing the story helped me to feel transformed by my mother’s death, to feel her presence rather than her absence. And I wanted to write about that so that other people who were suffering would understand that, when you have a loss, your heart is broken open but it’s also open to things of the spirit and to things of beauty, if you pay attention.”

Have You Seen Marie illustrated by Ester HernandezThe word “orphan” might not seem to apply to a fifty-three-year-old woman. Yet this is exactly how Sandra feels as she finds herself motherless, alone like “a glove left behind at the bus station.” What just might save her is her search for someone else gone missing: Marie, the black-and-white cat of her friend, Roz, who ran off the day they arrived from Tacoma. As Sandra and Roz scour the streets of San Antonio, posting flyers and asking everywhere, “Have you seen Marie?” the pursuit of this one small creature takes on unexpected urgency and meaning. With full-color illustrations that bring this transformative quest to vivid life, Have You Seen Marie? showcases a beloved author’s storytelling magic, in a tale that reminds us how love, even when it goes astray, does not stay lost forever.
