The Butterfly Lady's Daughter

If you have read my first book Heart's Reflections, you know I started to write in a very unusual way.  Again I believe every word I have written here.  It all comes right from my heart, and I hope it will touch your heart as well.  

Even though we have all experienced being a child in our own way, I know there is something in this book just for you.
 
Consider this a gift to yourself.  You are holding something you will want to keep and reread as your life goes on.  It will become an old friend. 

If I am right, you will want to keep it and be sure others you love enjoy it too. 

Nina Frances Pierce

Excerpt form the Butterfly Lady's Daughter:


My mother loved butterflies, for their beauty, yes,
but mostly because they were free.
A kind of free she never was and never would be.
Prisons are not only the brick and mortar ones we see.
No, they can take many forms,
some can even be inside of you and me.
Most shocking is that love can be a prison too.
Yes, the kind of love we feel,
both me and you.
In my mother's life there were always invisible walls
that only she could see.
So the butterfly became a symbol
of what she wished she could be.
My mom wore one all the time,
and so The Butterfly Lady became her name...
