The Memory of Butterflies


“The workmen, and anyone else who came here, should tread carefully and respectfully among my memories and my past. And not judge me.”

The Memory of Butterflies is a story that leaves you breathless. One in which, upon reading the last page, makes you reluctant to leave the people, emotions, and exquisite setting you’ve sunk into. Definitely a five-star read.

Grace Greene is a new-to-me author, and I’m so touched by her writing. She is a talented storyteller, evoking so many reactions and emotions out of me. And wowza—what a gorgeous cover!

This story displays the intricacies of life and love. Though we often think of things as right or wrong, good or bad, black or white—oftentimes our lives intermingle within the gray areas.

I won’t describe the stories events, twists, or revelations that kept me turning the pages. What I will reveal is this story kept me up late, took me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions, and pricked and stirred my soul.


A Memory of Butterflies is a memorable mother and daughter love story that moved me and inspired me to see others—their faults, circumstances, and choices—in a new and brighter light. It’s a lovely, stimulating tapestry of family, home, love, discovery, and redemption.
