“Wild Butterflies”


Wild Butterflies is the multigenerational story of the Angell family, each member striving for love but going about it in all the wrong ways. 

Feeling rejected by family and friends, Cory is more stressed 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.

Always angry Rita can’t figure out what a 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 And Bill’s confused — confused about his bitter mother, about his ex-wife and estranged and withdrawn daughter and about the beautiful woman he desires to know better.

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.

2.7 million grandparents are raising their grandchildren, yet most are not 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 U.S. and 40 percent live below the poverty line.

35 percent of American children live in single-parent households, but that doesn’t mean they won’t one day shake up the world.

Celebrities raised by single parents or grandparents:

Alicia Keys, singer – mom

Hugh Jackman, actor – dad

Jack Nicholson, actor – learned after his “sister” June’s death that she
was actually his mother and the couple that he knew as his parents
were really his grandparents

Leonardo DiCaprio, actor – mom

Maya Angelou, poet – grandmother

Oprah Winfrey, entertainment mogul – grandmother and then single mother and single father

Willie Nelson, singer – grandparents

 …Chaka Khan, singer – a grandmother with custody of her granddaughter



For single parents doing the best they can,

For grandparents weary of life’s demands

For every child, no matter how young or old, yearning for understanding…


Touching and human, 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.
