Waiting for Butterflies – Book Review

I highly recommend the book, “Waiting for Butterflies” by Karen Sargent. Once I started reading, I could hardly stop.

Have you ever been gifted a “sign” from a deceased love one?  I am reminded of the time we had a butterfly attend our wedding ceremony.  I have always believed it was a gift from my father-in-law, or a “hello from heaven” on our wedding day.  If you believe in the power of a mother’s love for her family, and a child’s innocence, you will enjoy this story.

A mother’s love never ends–not even when her life does.

 Longing for her family after her sudden death, Maggie returns home as a “lingering spirit” where she helplessly witnesses her family’s downward spiral in the aftermath of her passing.
Her husband is haunted by past mistakes and struggles to redeem himself. Her teenage daughter silently drowns in her own guilt, secretly believing she is responsible for her mother’s death. Only her five-year-old, full of innocence, senses her presence.
Although limited by her family’s grief and lack of faith, Maggie is determined to keep a sacred promise and salvage her family before her second chance runs out.
A tender portrait of a mother whose love reaches beyond possible, WAITING FOR BUTTERFLIES will embrace your heart and not let go.
