A speck of cinnamon and white fur, Billy did more than any mouse could have ever done. He helped Jeanne find her place in the countryside. He conquered her heart.Based on the true story of a little deer mouse who lived in the author’s kitchen for nearly half a decade, Billy Braveheart is a tale of survival, courage, and friendship. When Billy narrowly escapes the claws of a barn cat, he finds his way into an old farmhouse. Alone for the first time in his life, he struggles to find food, water, and nesting material. Just when things are looking up, his life is irrevocably changed when the aroma of peanut butter lures him into a trap set by Jeanne, a young urban professional determined to eradicate all mice from the porous old house she and her husband Franz have just bought. When Jeanne, horrified at the sight of the seriously wounded mouse, decides to spare Billy’s life, he ends up captive in a round cage. Struggling together under the same roof in an environment totally foreign to both, Billy and Jeanne develop a mutual admiration and, as the seasons unfold, an unlikely friendship.
