Princesses and Butterflies is a fairy tale with special meaning for children who have lost a friend or family member. It reveals that death is t the end, but the beginning of a new adventure! Sadly I lost my youngest child, Jori, to the rare neurological disorder kwn as Polymicrogyria - or PMG. Afterward I struggled to help my older daughters understand why their baby sister was gone. How could I explain the inexplicable? Through the heartache and tears arrived the words of this story, which became my little labor of love. The result is a tale set in a castle by the sea, written for my daughters - and for children everywhere. As the story unfolds, your little prince or princess will learn that sadness and loss can be transformed by love into strength and healing. This is a story of love, loss and life. It is our story. I hope it brings you and your child comfort and hope as you read and discuss it together.
