A voyage of self-discovery, The Butterflys Daughter is a beautiful story of family and friendship and the love and strength they inspire within us.
Just as a butterfly grows and changes, so does the main character, Luz, as she travels south, along the Monarchs migration route, with her grandmothers ashes. With the help of her new friends, Luz makes it to her ancestral homeland and meets the family she never knew. The discovery of her real history is life changing; the last stage of her transformation.
Wonderfully written by the best-selling author, Mary Alice Monroe, this book has an unforgettable feel to it. The characters are genuine, the settings are descriptive, the dialog is believable. The Butterflys Daughter is a pleasantly heartwarming, and surprisingly quick, read!
This was a sweet book. Not exactly to my taste, but I read it for a book club. I can see that many folks will like it.
