Learning to love is like learning to fly . . .
Eccentric. Weird. Crazy. Whatever people call her, Lila doesn’t mind. Most of the time. She finds solace in her sheltered world by raising butterflies and surrounding herself with their gentle beauty. They’re all she needs.
Most of the time.
Until a motorcycle-riding stranger roars up her driveway, invading her safe haven, throwing her life off-kilter, and forcing her to question everything. Persistent and stubborn, Harvey Sanford may be just what she needs—or everything she doesn’t.
He’s easy on the eyes, but hard on her emotions. What exactly is he after, and what is he not telling her? Should she safeguard her heart or follow it?
As a summer wedding approaches, Lila must decide how much she’s willing to risk for a chance at true happiness. In one intense night of desperation and revelation, she must confront her darkest fears—and hopefully discover that with faith and courage, shattered dreams can be restored, damaged hearts can love again, and broken wings can heal . . . maybe even fly.
A clean, inspirational, sweet summer romance!
Recommended for fans of contemporary Christian romance.
Therese Heckenkamp has written a beautiful novel with “The Butterfly Recluse”.
Lila’s story and the way the butterflies were woven into everything was phenomenal. I picked this book up one night and finished it the next. Hard to put down but I had to sleep!!!! Watching Lila discover herself was truly endearing, and that’s what held my interest.
There were some twists in the story that I did not expect and were pleasantly surprising.
The characters were well written and very relatable.
This was my first book by Therese Heckenkamp and will absolutely be searching out more soon!!!
I definitely recommend this book !!!
I received this in exchange for fair and honest review.
