I truly have no words to express how utterly amazed​ ​and​ ​pleased​ ​I​ ​am​ ​with​ ​this​ ​novel entitled​ ​I​ ​Believe​ ​in​ ​Butterflies.​ ​This​ ​story​ ​has​ ​moved​ ​me​ ​to​ ​tears,​ ​made​ ​me​ ​think,​ ​and challenged​ ​me​ ​in​ ​ways​ ​I​ ​never​ ​would​ ​have​ ​guessed.​ ​Well​ ​written,​ ​captivating,​ ​and wholly​ ​remarkable​ ​are​ ​just​ ​a​ ​few​ ​of​ ​the​ ​praises​ ​I​ ​can​ ​attribute​ ​to​ ​this​ ​wonderful​ ​work​ ​of literary​ ​perfection.​ ​Written​ ​by​ ​Marian​ ​L.​ ​Thomas,​ ​Butterflies​ ​harkens​ ​back​ ​to memories that​ ​I​ ​had​ ​of​ ​growing​ ​up​ ​and​ ​having​ ​to​ ​deal​ ​with​ ​my​ ​own​ ​family​ ​and​ ​their​ ​many​ ​secrets. Ms.​ ​Thomas​ ​breaks​ ​down​ ​her​ ​incredible​ ​tale​ ​by​ ​giving​ ​us​ ​readers​ ​each​ ​leading​ ​lady’s point​ ​of​ ​view.​ ​The​ ​readers​ ​get​ ​to​ ​see​ ​what​ ​each​ ​woman​ ​was​ ​thinking​ ​about, their​ ​views on​ ​each​ ​of​ ​their​ ​own​ ​heartaches,​ ​and​ ​how​ ​they​ ​all​ ​intricately​ ​fit​ ​together​ ​in​ ​the​ ​end.

The​ ​whole​ ​book​ ​was​ ​filled​ ​with​ ​little​ ​pearls of wisdom,​ ​both massive​ ​witticisms and​ ​tiny​ ​gems​ ​that​ ​are​ ​often forgotten​ ​about.​ ​We​ ​understand​ ​that​ ​our​ ​past​ ​can​ ​hurt,​ ​but​ ​we​ ​tend​ ​to​ ​forget​ ​that​ ​it’s​ ​all behind​ ​us. ​It’s​ ​up​ ​to​ ​us​ ​whether​ ​or​ ​not​ ​we​ ​decide​ ​if​ ​we​ ​want​ ​to​ ​live​ ​anchored​ ​to​ ​the chains​ ​of​ ​our​ ​past ​or​ ​choose​ ​to​ ​only​ ​remember​ ​the​ ​good​ ​and​ ​wonderful​ ​parts​ ​of​ ​our memories.​ ​Ms.​ ​Thomas​ ​teaches​ ​us​ ​that,​ ​while​ ​we​ ​know​ ​that​ ​there​ ​is​ ​wisdom​ ​in​ ​old​ ​age, we​ ​forget​ ​that​ ​life​ ​needs​ ​to​ ​be​ ​lived,​ ​often​ ​with​ ​consequences difficult​ ​for​ ​the​ ​youth​ ​to understand.​ ​This​ ​book​ ​had​ ​the​ ​soul​ ​of​ ​a​ ​beloved​ ​grandmother’s​ ​stories,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​reader can​ ​recognize​ ​the​ ​wistfulness​ ​of​ ​wanting​ ​to​ ​turn​ ​back​ ​time,​ ​to​ ​get​ ​back​ ​some​ ​years, and​ ​to​ ​not​ ​have​ ​life​ ​be​ ​full​ ​of​ ​regrets.​ ​Ms.​ ​Thomas​ ​took​ ​me​ ​on​ ​the​ ​journey​ ​that​ ​these​ ​three women​ ​take,​ ​and​ ​I​ ​believe​ ​I​ ​am​ ​all​ ​the​ ​wiser​ ​for​ ​it.​ ​I​ ​could​ ​read​ ​the​ ​chaotic​ ​insecurities​ ​of my​ ​youth​ ​through​ ​Lorraine.​ ​In​ ​Honour’s​ ​words,​ ​I​ ​could​ ​see​ ​a​ ​life​ ​full​ ​of​ ​regrets.​ ​And​ ​in Emma​ ​Lee’s​ ​wisdom​ ​and​ ​brashness,​ ​I​ ​saw​ ​a​ ​mother​ ​who​ ​wanted​ ​to​ ​protect​ ​her​ ​child from​ ​the​ ​world.​ ​Ms.​ ​Thomas​ ​took​ ​me​ ​on​ ​a​ ​bittersweet​ ​journey​ ​of​ ​faith,​ ​hope,​ ​and​ ​love​ ​that endures​ ​in​ ​spite​ ​of​ ​all​ ​the​ ​barriers​ ​we​ ​put​ ​in​ ​its​ ​way.​ ​This​ ​novel​ ​is​ ​truly​ ​encouraging​ ​and heartfelt,​ ​and​ ​I​ ​felt​ ​the​ ​love​ ​through​ ​the​ ​pages.​ ​This​ ​book​ ​helped​ ​me​ ​to​ ​remember​ ​to believe​ ​and​ ​trust​ ​again.​ ​Let​ ​its​ ​wisdom​ ​speak​ ​to​ ​you.​ ​I​ ​highly​ ​recommend​ ​this​ ​to everyone.
