Beschreibung

To keep a devastating family secret from being revealed, a young mother's desperate lies could end up destroying everything, and everyone, she loves. The Memory of Butterflies is a poignant story of family and forgiveness—of knowing when to let go and when to hold each other close.

Hannah Cooper's daughter is leaving for college soon. The change is bittersweet. A single mother since the age of eighteen, Hannah isn't eager to confront the pain of being alone, but she's determined not to let her own hang-ups keep Ellen from the future she deserves. As Ellen's high school graduation approaches, Hannah decides it's time to return to her roots in Cooper's Hollow along Virginia's beautiful and rustic Cub Creek.

With the help of longtime friend Roger Westray, Hannah devotes her energies to building a new house on the site of the old family home, destroyed in a fire more than a decade ago. But Hannah's entire adult life has revolved around one very big secret. And her new beginning comes with unanticipated risks that will cost her far more than she could have imagined—perhaps more than she can survive.

When a confrontation forces Hannah to expose her secret, the truth may destroy her beloved daughter. Hannah is prepared to sacrifice everything to protect her family, but can their lives and their bond withstand the seismic shift that's coming?

    I received to as a Goodreads free giveaway, thank you. It was a truly heart warming story about family and choices. Sometimes decisions are made from the heart with all good intentions it still results in ramifications. It shows how deep a parent's love is for their child. This was an amazing story.

    I absolutely enjoyed reading this story of Hannah, the mother, and her daughter, Ellen. A poignant story that had me mesmerized. Hannah is hiding a secret, and it's a big one, from her daughter. Actually, she's hiding it from the whole town. The only ones who know the truth are herself, her grandmother and a neighbor. The secret is going to tear her and her daughter apart, but it's one that she's going to have to tell.A wonderful, moving story that I would definitely recommend!Thanks to Lake Union Publishing and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

    Grace Greene is a new author for me and after reading The Memory of Butterflies, I have just ordered her previous books. I loved her writing style and am not sure how I missed reading her earlier. It's a book that grabs you at the beginning and quickly has you emotionally involved with the characters. It's a story about family and secrets that can destroy a family.Hannah is a single mom who has totally built her life around her daughter Ellen. As the novel begins, Ellen is excited to be going away to college and Hannah has decided to re-build a house on the land that she grew up on with her grandparents. As Hannah spends more time at the remains of her grandparents house, she reflects on the secrets that they kept from her about her parents and how she accepted the secret and went on with her life. She knows that she has kept a major secret from her daughter and that if her daughter finds out, their life together many be destroyed but fate intervenes and Hannah finds out the results of keeping secrets within a family.This is a beautifully written novel about the love of a parent for a child and the sacrifices that a mother will make to bring happiness and well being to their child. It's a wonderful, emotional story that will stay with readers long after the last page is turned.
