Peter Butler’s expansive novel “Womanhood” delivers surprise after surprise. As a woman reading this novel, I found Lauren’s voice to be genuine, which is a unique turn considering this book is penned by a man. Certain times that is apparent, like when he speaks of her beauty often, yet it fits with the story and is actually a driving force of transformation.
When Lauren lost her father quite suddenly to a heart attack, she had no idea how just how this singular event would devastate her life later. When her mother remarries, it eventually opens a pit of despair for the young woman and leads to events that change everything.
The protagonist is many faceted, something that I find rare when he or she is a teen.
Intense, emotional and well written – this book offers up clever lines and deep thought. What would you do if you found yourself in her situation?

What a great read from Peter Butler. Butler's style of writing was at a good pace, and there wasn't a boring moment. I thought the scenes were very imaginative with very attachable characters. The mixture of suspense and romance was a great mixture, not too much, and not too little. I would recommend.

What a drama-filled thriller and brain tingle that had me on the edge of my seat from the moment I started reading. Peter Butler has done a fantastic job of crafting an engaging, and over all great story! The storyline is exceptional and really flows quite nicely. There are just enough twists & turns presented and perfectly placed so you really don’t know what to expect next as you read. The main character, Lauren Hart, is very likeable and easy to relate to, so you really form this camaraderie & bond with her plights as you read along and get more engaged. I really was pulling for her. All-in-all I found this to be a great book and well worth putting on your winter reading list! I give it 5 big stars!

What an intense and mind tingling thriller. Peter Butler has written an absolute gem. Although it is fiction, it really makes you stop and think what you would do if you found yourself in the same situation as the main character, Lauren Hart. I do not like to talk about the plots of books that I read when I do a review as I would never want to ruin a good book for another reader. But I will say but the storyline is excellent! The author is very good with descriptive wording really makes all of the action in the story come on live in your imagination. There are also a lot of good twists and unexpected turns that truly keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time you are reading. A great book indeed! Five big stars!

Author Peter Butler most definitely brings the drama in Womanhood, a gripping coming-of-age tale that will leave you moved to the point of no return. By every indication, one young girl's journey into womanhood seems typical, until one night, when the course of events with her boyfriend ventures way left. What I enjoyed most about this read is the takeaway, the underlying theme that when bad things happen to good people, an inner strength can prevail. I highly recommend, and could see this book up on the big screen or on the small screen as a Lifetime movie.

Lauren is one tough little cookie and I feel like I know her now thanks to the excellent writing style of Mr. Butler, he brought her to life on the page. The character descriptions and mannerisms are spot on and I had no trouble at all picturing them in my head as I read through. It had me hooked right from the first page, I couldn’t put it down. I will be highly recommending this author to all my friends and will be checking out his other offerings myself. Fantastic Read! Kudos Mr. Butler.

WOW…now here is an exceptional read... A term like “plucky” would not do this story’s seventeen year old protagonist, Lauren Hart, justice. In this dramatic, gritty, and provocative tale she's almost a high school graduate, but is about to get an education from something far FAR more worthwhile than an institution of learning. She is going to get it from the “real world”. The future seems anything but bright in the home she shares with her substance-abusing mother Sarah and her second husband; Lauren’s stepfather Lachie—a piece of work and a scumbag, if there ever was one. A savage attack on Lauren late one night later becomes a dish of revenge served up by our high school heroine. Her troubles are far from over….Her delusional, drugged-up mother turns a blind eye to Lachie's actions and Lauren feels that she has no choice but to burn that bridge, and leave forever.

Feeling denied the kind of love and trust that Lauren feels she should be able to share with her mother, Lauren finds a kind of surrogate mother in Rosie…an attorney who is large in not only size and stature, but also in heart. As well as Rosie, Lauren encounters Father Bob, who manages the goings on of a homeless shelter, and later finds out about life on the streets when she takes up with a roving street-smart gang of criminals that occupies an old building known as the “Fortress” and are governed by a charming sociopath named Nash. Our heroine has solid feelings for Nash, but Lauren learns later on about the truth in the saying about how you lie down with dogs, you will wake up with fleas.
