Chasing the Butterfly

In Chasing the Butterfly, debut fiction author Jayme H. Mansfield writes about forgiveness and love.  We are brought back to the year 1931, 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 turbulent times surrounding World War II and the effects of her mother’s abandonment.

Ella escapes her feelings by painting, and becomes a very gifted artist, and she paints from her heart, many of her paintings reflecting her own life.

What I enjoyed about this novel, is that it is very God centered, and each chapter is written in the perspective of the character that is being introduced.   This is a wonderful novel, and I would definitely read more of Ms. Mansfields writings.

  I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.
