But it is mute four-year-old Flo who captures Harriet's heart, and who teaches her that protecting those you care for most can be hardest of all. ANGEL PUSS vividly evokes the dynamism and passions of a Kings Cross that has gone. It is also the story of women's love for children, and the sacrifices a woman will make to protect and nurture a beloved child. 'irreverent, moving and irascibly funny.
