Seven Extraordinary Generations in One Magical Story

The Butterfly Tree is about family ties that bind us across time—and the universal quest to rise to a higher purpose and then lift the next generation upon our shoulders. It is also about deep roots and strong branches, literally and figuratively, and about overcoming personal adversity before rising to help another, and in doing so a single “family” tree is grafted from three disparate—and multiracial—lineages, and made more majestic because of these unions.
