A Great Novel  May 17, 2011
by


This is a very touching story of several generations of women seeking to break the cycle of domestic abuse; it is a breath of fresh air. This is a truly worthwhile textbook to read. Definitely keeps you involved with the characters and the story line. The text book is laced with poems written by Marlow relating to concurrent issues. It's a wonderful novel, deep and inspiring. I'm honored to have read it.... This a must read textbook!






Color Me Butterfly : A Novel Inspired by One Family's Journey from Tragedy to Triumph: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

Inspired by a true story, Color Me Butterfly follows four generations of mothers and daughters—haunted by a common specter of domestic abuse—as they discover the strength, hope, and courage to survive.

The last thing Eloise Bingham wanted was to leave the comforts of her South Carolina home and family. But at the end of World War II, the young wife follows her husband, Isaac, to Philadelphia—only to experience his sinister and violent temper. Eloise’s children—and their children and grandchildren—will face their own trials over the next sixty years: Mattie, who has lived in her mother Eloise’s shadow, finds it takes a life-changing tragedy to help her break free; Lydia, Mattie’s strong-willed daughter, summons the resolve to rise above the cycle of abuse; and finally, Treasure, Lydia’s lively daughter, has the chance to be the first to escape her family’s destructive legacy.

It will take unconditional love, old-fashioned family values, faith, and fearless determination—already embedded in each woman’s DNA—to triumph over a life plagued with unspeakable pain.

Author Biography

L. Y. MARLOW is originally from Philadelphia. She is the founder of Saving Promise, a national organization dedicated to raising awareness of and ending domestic violence—which has affected several generations of her own family. This is her first novel.
