Cocooning The Butterfly
“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.”Review by ~ Jay Squires, Author
“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

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.
