“Wild Butterflies”

“It’s strange how often we’re placed in seemingly impossible situations; but with faith, those challenges make us stronger.

Then, somehow, the right people come into our lives to rectify all the perceived wrongs, to chase away the butterflies,
or to add a little magic.”

Wild Butterflies is the story of Rita, Cory, and Bill — each striving for love but going about it in all the wrong ways. 

Feeling rejected by family and friends, Cory’s butterflies are more active than ever. Normally a good girl prone to hiding in her room reading fairy tales or jumping rope with friends, she’s baffling everyone by lying and stealing.

Rita’s angry and tired of it. She can’t figure out what that dapper old man sees in her or why her son doesn’t grow up and raise his own child.

And Bill’s confused. Confused about his bitter mother, his ex-wife, his estranged and withdrawn daughter and about the beautiful woman he meets one cold morning.

Too caught up in their own dysfunction, anxiety, and drama, neither Rita, Bill or Cory realizes there’s a real monster is waiting to strike. Thankfully, love comes to chase away all their butterflies.

More than 2.7 million grandparents are raising their grandchildren; yet, most aren’t eligible for financial support because they don’t have approval by the state.

The number of single-parent households is rapidly rising. There are 12 million single parents in the United States and 40 percent of them live below the poverty line.

Celebrities raised by single parents or grandparents:

Alicia Keys, singer

Hugh Jackman, actor

Shaquille O’Neal, former basketball player

Jack Nicholson, actor

Barack Obama, former president

Jet Li, actor

Maya Angelou, poet

Oprah Winfrey, entertainment mogul

Willie Nelson, singer

For single parents doing the best they can, for grandparents weary of life’s demands, for every child — young or old — yearning for understanding,  Katherine F. Green’s debut novel Wild Butterflies is the tender story of a multigenerational family longing for understanding in difficult circumstances and the people who teach them what love really means.
