Bella was born in a meadow. She had the best life that a cat could ever wish for. But then it happened. All of a sudden, her mother was gone, just like that. Bella felt lost. She didn’t know what to do. She felt like crying for hours and hours until she couldn’t cry anymore. Until the day she woke up in the pound instead of under the cherry tree. She meets a fuzzy white cat, whose best friend Jungle Man had lost his mother as well. Then, adoption day arrives. Will Jungle Man and Bella be taken away together, or will Bella lay deserted at the pound, an orphan kitten lost from the world?

Johanna’s Premiere Book

Johanna Lindstrom is a middle-school student, a cat lover, and now, a published author. Her first book, “Beneath My Orphan Heart,” shares the story of Bella, a cat born by a cherry tree, who must find her way in the world after suffering a terrible loss. Along the way, she learns that life is full of highs and lows; but with her new family and friends, nothing is impossible. Johanna’s descriptive prose immerses the reader in Bella’s story. Animal lovers will especially appreciate the bonds that are created in the story, and any reader will come to know the author’s own connection to cats. Way to go, Johanna. I look forward to your next “Tale."


Great book! Yet short, it is cute and definitely worth reading! I know Johanna and she is the best friend anyone could ask for! We always loved writing stories and sharing them with each other, and this is her best (and first online) one yet! It's a great start for her on iBooks and I hope she does more! I loved the connection at the end (and I won't tell what it was so download the book already)! I thought it was great how she included one of her cats in the story. In conclusion, download this book. NOW! 😝
