When the Butterflies Came

whenthebutterfliescameWritten by Kimberley Griffiths Little


This is an amazing story! This is a book filled with beautiful imagery and intrigue. You wouldn’t guess that this is in the mystery genre, but it is. A well thought out story with twists and turns and surprises. The characters are unique and easy to connect to. The setting in the South and the history there are woven into the characters and who they are and why. This book contains so many interesting features that encourage research and exploration; such as the South, the Bayou, the Chuuk islands, and butterflies (Lepidoptera). I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone!
