Amazon Editorial Review

In clear, luminous prose Marcia Preston brings readers the story of three women, connected by friendship, family secrets and a single moment that binds them together forever.

As a child, Bobbie Lee found refuge from her lonely life at her best friend's house. Rockhaven was a place of magic, colored by the butterflies that Cincy Jaines's mother, Lenora, studied. Her friendship with Cincy and Lenora soon became Bobbie's compass. But the tangled intimacies between them began to unravel, and in one night, Rockhaven became a place of unspeakable tragedy.

Now, a decade later, the long shadows of that night continue to haunt Bobbie, despite her attempts to hide from the past. When a stranger with ties to Lenora and Cincy arrives at her doorstep, she is forced to confront the memories she has tried to avoid, and the dark secret at the heart of the tragedy slowly emerges.

Bobbie is living with her mother who is an alcoholic. Bobbie becomes close with her best friend's mom, Lenora. They share an interest in the study of butterflies. This relationship created jealousies that led to a tragic event that forever changed all their lives. The story goes from the past to the present weaving the story together. I enjoyed this book.

I've never heard of this author, so I'm eager to read this. I've found so many new authors and good books from generous bookcrossers.

Thank you dabercro for the awesome box of books! I think I'll be reading a lot this winter.
