Dear Kathleen, how much of Butterfly is you? Or should I say 'Kathleen is Butterfly'!
Many times my thoughts drifted away from the book, triggered by something I just read. I remembered my childhood surrounded by loving family members. My great grandmother, who had to step in trying to raise two small little girls lovingly and selflessly. Me, at age 10, holding her hand while she took her last breaths. Her female friends who stayed the night with us beside the open casket. Who helped us washing her and dressing her for her final journey. The phone call I received when my beloved uncle passed. He had finished my great grandmothers job, helping me through my teenage years and nursing school. I couldn't be there when he was dying, since I was in the last Trimester of my pregnancy. My family waited to call until after the funeral, afraid I might take the next plane to Europe. My sister told me on the phone that she threw a bouquet of red roses down on his casket for me......
Bridget has everything a woman could want, or does she? Sometimes one has to give up everything to gain more. Comforted by her family, the ones alive and the ones who have passed, but are still there to guide her, we watch Bridget become the woman that "walks with the angels amongst us". I felt sad when she was lonely. I smiled with her when she laughed through her tears of sorrow, and I cheered her on during the times she was filled with thoughts of self doubt.Read more ›
Simply put this book is marvelous and a must read! Fantastic,I loved it!
Carole Lynn Madison
And Bridget responds to those events with determination, courage, compassion and a marvelous spirituality! Threading through her story are the memory of her dear departed brother who strengthens her, a miraculous butterfly, intensely spiritual and powerfully illuminative dreams. The thread of family is woven through it all as a foundation as she follows her dream to her destiny - while always maintaining those family connections. Butterfly is a marvelous story of finding self, and of a deep resolve to maintain that path. It is a book which sings to the soul. It has a powerful ending which completes a circle of healing that I found just breathtaking! It is a book you just have to read if you enjoy stories about a triumph of the spirit! I couldn't put it down, and read it all in one sitting, gladly neglecting other things I had planned for that day!
Dan L. Hays, author of "Freedom's Just Another Word"
