“Denfeld summons the lives of abandoned girls in frank, matter-of-fact detail, never glossing over the filth or violence or the myriad ways in which society lets them down. But ultimately The Butterfly Girl is a crime novel with a murderer on the loose. In the final pages, Denfeld speeds up the narrative, creating a propulsive denouement.” (New York Times)
"Denfeld reminds us that storytelling remains one of the most powerful means we have of confronting our darkest human impulses, and sometimes overcoming them." (Washington Post)
In the hands of Denfeld, The Butterfly Girl is a crime thriller built upon redemption. A survivor of trauma who was herself homeless as a young girl in Portland, Ore., Denfeld knows the harsh truths of her book’s world. . . . Amid a steady supply of darkness, The Butterfly Girl still has room for light. (Los Angeles Times)
“Denfeld tells her twinned stories with a remarkable sense of calm and forbearance in prose that is close to lyrical.” (Toronto Star)
"[M]arvelously done, and Denfeld’s characters . . . are human in the best sense of the word ― humorous, loving, scared and easily rooted for." (Datebook)
“Equal parts chilling, tragic and hopeful, Rene Denfeld’s new novel combines her haunting, lyrical prose with a page-turning and harrowing mystery, putting The Butterfly Girl into a league of its own. Fans of The Child Finder will devour this.” (Mary Kubica, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Good Girl)
“The Butterfly Girl is a beautiful and very moving novel about lost souls. This heart-stopping thriller left me breathless.” (Shari Lapena, bestselling author of The Couple Next Door)

That’s how I felt when I read THE BUTTERFLY GIRL. There’s a line in the book that goes something like, “when you lose everything, everything matters.” The story stems from that, and highlights what real human desperation, despair, and danger looks like, as well as authentic human optimism - even in the face of the former.
As you read TBG, you’ll see how the light cracks through what seems like impenetrable darkness. The characters’ situations are [hopefully] not relatable, yet the emotional toll of their respective situations will certainly resonate with readers. We’ve all suffered losses, after all.
I don’t want to give away anymore of this beautifully written, wrenching and haunting, yet hopeful, page-turner. I hope you’ll read it.
An excellent sequel to THE CHILD FINDER - can’t wait for the next
