The Butterfly Garden

The Butterfly Garden

Sherry Hogan Dudik
4.7/5 (4 ratings)
"The Butterfly Garden," a novel, is the story of how a very special soul-to-soul bond between a man and a woman transcends even death.

Sabrina Howell is a soon-to-be-forty divorcee who runs her own public relations business. She is a jaded, disillusioned middle-aged woman who has had more than her share of heartbreak from a philandering ex-husband, the resultant divorce and its ramifications for her only child, Allie. Though extremely proficient in her business venue, she has constructed walls around herself, unwilling to trust in anyone or anything except her daughter and best friend, Liz.

Nick Martin is a forty-four-year-old science teacher and athletic director at Carver High School. He, too, has experienced sorrow and despair in his life. In part due to a family tragedy, his marriage disintegrated and his wife left him for another man. But now, almost totally satisfied in his work as a teacher and coach, he is basically happy. Though a scientist, he holds a very optimistic outlook not only on life -- but the hereafter. His deepest regret stems from an unfulfilled promise he had made many years ago.

Sabrina and Nick meet under highly unusual circumstances. They feel drawn to one another, despite major philosophical differences. A profound connection and intense romance quickly develop between Nick and "Breeny" as he calls her. Nick introduces her to a new world of endless possibilities, and eventually convinces her to believe in something bigger than herself and in wonders yet unseen.

Their shared mission for a fundraising project is a place of renewal and hope. It is also the background setting for some amazing, somewhat mystical revelations for Sabrina, and later for her daughter, Allie, and Nick's beloved student, Jeremy, who has suffered from a brain tumor since an early age.

Nick and Sabrina, interconnected in mysterious ways, find themselves walking the bridge between life and death. They discover there is both hope and meaning in the face of tragedy, and an untapped strength of spirit to carry on. That even in the darkest hour, the deepest love has the intensity to not only break your heart, but to heal it. It can turn tragedy into triumph, and even has the power to create miracles when you least expect them.

In addition to being a love story, "The Butterfly Garden" offers an uplifting and reaffirming experience for anyone who has grieved over the loss of a loved one, or is in the process of doing so. It is the baring of two souls who ultimately refuse to allow death to put an end to their extraordinary relationship.
