For single parents doing the best they can, for grandparents weary from life’s demands, for every child, no matter how old, yearning for understanding, Katherine F. Green’s debut novel Wild Butterflies is the multigenerational story of the Angell family — each striving for love and going about it the wrong way.
Feeling rejected by family and friends, Cory has taken up lying and stealing. Always angry Rita can’t figure out what this dapper old man sees in her. And Bill’s just confused, confused about his bitter mother, about his estranged and withdrawn daughter and about the beautiful woman he sets out to know better. Caught up in their own dysfunction, anxiety and drama, none of them realizes a real monster is waiting to strike.
Touching and human, “Wild Butterflies” by Katherine F. Green is the tender story of a multigenerational family longing for understanding in difficult circumstances and the people who teach them what love really means.
