The Butterfly's Daughter Book Review

       Four very different women embark on a transformational journey that follows the migrating monarchs across the United States to Mexico. The story begins when Luz Avila's grandmother, the local butterfly lady, purchases an old, orange VW bug for a road trip home to Mexico. 

     When she unexpectedly dies, Luz is inspired to take her grandmother's ashes home. In the manner of the Aztec myth of the goddess who brings light to the world, Luz attracts a collection of lost women, each seeking change in their lives. The Mexican people believe the monarchs are the spirits of the recently departed and Luz taps into ancient rituals and myths as she follows the spectacular, glittering river of orange monarchs in the sky to home. 

Read an Excerpt  
My Thoughts - This Amazing novel takes the lore of the Monarch Butterfly arriving on the Mexican Day of the Dead  and weaves it with a woman's journey of self discovery. Luz meats her mother whom she has believed to be dead along the way. This is the perfect book for a book club because there is so much to discuss.
