What Readers Are Saying About Butterfly: "This was a beautiful story of two broken people who help each other through the pain and healing to find love and a life together!"-- Sweet Spot Book Blog "BUTTERFLY by Elle Harper is a lovely, uplifting tale that combines a love story with a more meaningful message about dealing with trauma and learning to trust again."-- The Romance Reviews "I am continually amazed at the emotional terrain over which author Sibel Hodge can carry her readers. Writing as Elle Harper, she takes us on yet another walk on the dark side. This tale though involving pain, anguish, and terror is actually a story of hope."-- Barbara Silkstone, Bestselling Author "I couldn't recommend this book enough. It's raw, it's honest, it's brutal, it's real ... handled beautifully, with many messages to share because in the end it's about surviving any way you can. Also, one of the very best duel-POV's I've ever read."-- Bibliophilia "Beautiful. Simply beautifully written, heartfelt and engaging. A must read. 5 outstanding stars."-- Lisa Lim, Author of Confessions of a Call Center Girl "This book was just beautiful. From the first chapter I couldn't stop reading. I really hope that a ton of people read this and love this book as much as I did."-- Tattered Book Blog "This book touches a very sensitive subject. It is a very emotional and beautiful read. "Butterfly" will make you feel and truly understand the seriousness of rape and its effect on victims. I would highly recommend to read this book! It is truly an amazing story."-- Pages of Books Blog "Well written, modern, topical, and realistic, I could feel their tension, confusion, and indecision; as well as their hope and relief as the slow process of understanding, self acceptance, and little by little - as those all important things know as forgiveness and healing - occurred."-- Rockin' and Reviewing "Butterfly wasn't a two-dimensional read, it was a 3-dimensional emotional roller coaster that took me on a journey of pain, regret, and hope.The journey that the author presents in this book is a heartbreaking one that shows the realities of the world, but also the hope that can shine through the darkest parts of life."-- Works of Fiction "I think I was a bit in love with this book from the first page. The book opens with a rather visceral flashback and as scary as it is, it gripes you and drags you right into the story. It lived up to every single one of my expectations but it was just...so good."-- Works of Fiction "Butterfly" was a heartbreaking, powerful and thought provoking read about two people battling to survive... and I loved it."-- The Hopeless Romantic "Elle Harper, did a great job writing this book. She brought a topic to life that is not talked about much. I definitely recommend this book!!!!!!!!"-- Reader Girls Blog."-- Provided by publisher.
