ONCE THERE WAS AN auspicious little butterfly who lived on the side of a very steep mountain. How Willow had come to be born on the side of this particular mountain was a great mystery to her for there hadn’t been an Old World Swallowtail since the previous century. Yet, she felt sure it was for a very special reason that she was there. Until she began to doubt . . .
Christine Horner and Joey McGrellis take us on a courageous journey of the heart as Willow, marveling at her wondrous existence, explores life, death, unlikely heroes, and a miracle when a man-made fire changes her life and her mountain home forever.
