The Memory of Butterflies

The Memory of Butterflies by Grace Greene


My daughter, Ellen, will graduate from high school this year.

The closer we get to graduation, the harder the past is coming at me, kicking like a living creature and forcing its way back into my life. With it, it brings happy memories but also those that were gladly forgotten–including the memory of how I lost my Ellen seventeen years ago, then found her again.
