Remember the Butterfly by Rebecca L. Marsh

Two families, two tragic histories. Infertility, abuse, grief, decisions. One baby. Oh gosh, it all sounds a bit sad, doesn't it?

But…it's a beautifully written story that handles the grief of one woman's loss of a sister and her own infertility, and the torment of another who's pregnancy is threatened by an abusive partner and has to make decisions about her future that no woman should ever have to make.

The situations of both women sound desperate, but the author handles each with sympathy and compassion. It's a book that's hard to put down because you can't see how either woman is going achieve any resolution to their respective problems. And that's what makes it compelling.

Marsh hits just the right level of poignancy. Wonderful.
