Cocooning The Butterfly

“Find the man who is worthy of your Butterfly Bed, Sweetheart, for he is the Keeper of the Monarch.”

Laila Doncaster

“Drama, mystery, feuds, sorrow, joy, unconditional love, unconscionable hate and abuse, and healing the heart and soul.  Laila Doncaster, you rock; a stellar author.  Kept me enthralled the whole darn book!  Hurry up and get book 2 done so I can continue with the story.  I could not put it down!.”

Review by M. Doey ~ British Columbia, Canada

“I was taken by this fresh, light-hearted romance with a twist, a turn and a touch of modern life melded with life of old. The landscape descriptions, truly give a sense of Canadian terrain, and life in all seasons. A diverse cast of characters with brilliant personalities came together to form and remain solid unity throughout the book. Cocooning the Butterfly is as deep a metaphor as the author’s bravery in exposing her emotions.”

Review by M. Tillotson ~ British Columbia, Canada

“A bold but sensual story of the rapture in the coming together of a powerful man and a woman searching for safety in love. How fun to be a part of the pre-read, and share the insight of a woman’s heart as she finds truth in love, and then blossoms with it. I know this is just the beginning as Halya travels our paths, for this is the reality of all women in wanting a real man. A great read.”

Review by, Steel Riata ~ Alberta Canada

“Beautiful first chapter by this fresh. young writer. We’ll undoubtedly be hearing more from her and her new writings. Good, visual opening. Reader gets pulled into characters early on, when identification is so necessary, then gets pulled up by the scruff of her neck to learn the protagonist (at least one of them) is the Buffalo. Fascination point of view for the story.”

The Book

The scribe he etched, written of pen and ink, rolled tight the scroll and hid it from sight; only the virtuous love of a Buffalo shall spin a Cocoon in shelter of a Caterpillar.

  “Jos vaalit häntä sydämesi aarteena, Jumala siunaa sinua ylitsevuotavin aartein Hänen totuudessaan ja yltäkylläisyydessään; totuudessa, jonka tietää vain Perhonen ja hänen Kotelonsa.” 

Translated into English, the words have deep, metaphorical meaning. 

  “If ye shelter her in treasures of the heart, God shall bless thee with treasures abundant in His truth and prosperity; a truth known only of a Butterfly and her Cocoon.”
