The Butterfly’s Daughter – giveaway

“Life is more about the journey than the destination.”

Four very different women embark on a transformational journey that follows the migrating monarchs across the United States to Mexico. The story begins when Luz Avila’s grandmother, the local butterfly lady, purchases an old, orange VW bug for a road trip home to Mexico. When she unexpectedly dies, Luz is inspired to take her grandmother’s ashes home. In the manner of the Aztec myth of the goddess who brings light to the world, Luz attracts a collection of lost women, each seeking change in their lives. The Mexican people believe the monarchs are the spirits of the recently departed and Luz taps into ancient rituals and myths as she follows the spectacular, glittering river of orange monarchs in the sky to home.

Once again novelist Mary Alice Monroe delivers a powerful and compelling novel of self discovery that parallels an awe inspiring event in nature.

Above is the summary of Mary Alice Monroe’s latest novel, The Butterfly’s Daughter.  After reading this excerpt, I can’t wait to dive into the book!  I love stories that involve family secrets, road trips and a bit of new information and this has all of those things and more.  I think The Butterfly’s Daughter would be an excellent read for the cottage this summer (or a chair in my backyard with my feet in the kiddie pool) and I have a feeling it’s the kind of book that will get passed to my mom, a few aunts, and a cousin or two before I get it back.

You can watch Mary Alice Monroe discuss her latest book and how monarch butterflies inspired her, then purchase a copy of your own when it’s released on May 3, or enter below to win a copy!

      Looks GREAT!!!!!!!!!! I love this author!
      I will be reading it in the bathtub if I win because my husband will not allow me to use the e-reader in the tub for fear of ruining it so if I have a physical book (which I miss BTW) it would be my bath book! I could so use one of those right now :)
