“Cocooning, The Butterfly, is as deep a metaphor as the author’s bravery in exposing her emotions.” Review by R. Lawrence ~ British Columbia, Canada
Many reviews come in, and many are received by email. Thank you, Mr. Lawrence, for contacting me with such praise and a humbling review.
MAGNIFICENT narrative with the touch of excellence
“Very quickly I became caught up in the narrative and was trapped irrevocably with this delicious heroine who was orphaned at a very young age and left alone to cope for her self and not surprisingly made bad decisions that really hurt. Then suffering horrible consequences, she takes control of her life. It is an adrenaline-pumping experience where I was loudly cheering her on as SHE began to turn her life around. This is the stuff of Gabriel Garcia Marquez where — carefully crafted and beautifully constructed fiction is irreversibly captivating. This extraordinary and remarkably fabulous narrative has a way of trapping the reader at the edge of his or her seat. To say I could not put the book down is the truth. This is a great experience. I COMPLETELY RECOMMEND THIS FIRST BOOK!” Amazon Review by C. Michael Bennis, Author & Speaker ~ Tucson, Arizona USA
Thank you, Mr. Bennis, for your kind words, encouragement and praise. To be compared to such a writer as Gabriel Garcia Marquez (learn more about Mr. Marquez on his IMDb Profile) is to be honored with the highest regard for my writing, and I accept this as not only an honor but a privilege. You have given me the courage to continue writing, and I thank you, from the bottom of my heart. And, I am so very happy that you enjoyed the book.
“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 Madlyn 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
