The Butterfly's Daughter by Mary Alice Monroe

The Butterfly’s Daughter is a breathtaking story of family, friendship and the love and power that they encourage within us.

Just as a butterfly goes through a life changing metamorphosis, so does the main character, Luz, as she travels south, along the Monarch Butterfly’s migration path, accompanied by her grandmother’s ashes. Luz makes it to her family’s homeland and meets the relatives she never knew. The finding of her real history is life altering and the last stage of her transformation.

Magnificently written by Mary Alice Monroe, this book has an extraordinary feel to it. The characters are authentic, the settings are evocative and the dialog is realistic. This is a perfect beach read.

5 Stars
