Chasing the Butterfly, Jayme Mansfield. What a beautiful book about love, life, growing up, survival, forgiveness and using your gifts. "From a vineyard in the south of France to the sophisticated city of Paris, Ella Moreau searches for the hope and love she lost as a young girl when her mother abandoned the family. Ella's journey is portrayed through a heartbroken child, a young woman's struggles during the tumultuous times surrounding World War II, and as a reflective adult."
The Magician’s Land is the apex of an incredible story about pursuing dreams after they’ve been stripped away, of crossing the line into unknown dangerous territory, and continuing the journey of self-discovery well into adulthood. It starts out like Ocean’s Eleven but in a contemporary fantasy world with elements of Harry Potter meets Chronicles of Narnia for adults resulting in a story that immediately captivates.
