This plot moves quickly through several weeks. The story was triggered by my late husband's couch, of all things. It had stylized butterfly designs on the cushions, and one of my children said they looked like 'butterfly people". The entire story concept, including the culture and history of the Nia hit me like a lightning bolt, and I knew I had to write the book.

Each character in the story represents various degrees of loyalty to the community and their respective duties in their culture. The struggle in the plot is not so much the characters against their enemies but the characters against themselves and their own fears about the unknown.
I hope you enjoy reading this story. I very much enjoyed writing it!
