“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.
If Halya had known what the Knight Riders stood for, stood against, and what they did to protect her life from the Demons Den gang, would she have experienced the trauma and heartache that she had gone through?
Possibly, but that’s not what happened or how it was.
Sheltered and innocent to the reality of the bikers that swarmed about her everyday life, and the modern world, her family did what they had to do to save her from sure death. The Demons wanted her dead, but they had to find her first.
Orphaned and uneducated about the real world she was bullied, beaten, shunned, molested, raped, battered, harassed and broken, but her faith and will to endure gave her the strength to search for the man in her nightly dreams.
This is Halya’s side of the story, what she went through and how she overcame the pain and sorrow of her past.
Loving her, protecting her, sheltering her in warmth and tenderness, her dream man, The Buffalo, it was his destiny in Cocooning the Butterfly that would save her spirit from sure madness, as he used his horse whisperer’s tactics to make her feel safe.
A biker’s war, a long-standing feud over a multi-million dollar ranch, one boy and one girl were destined to achieve the promise of the old men of long ago.
“Cocooning The Butterfly” book is receiving wonderful words of praise and 5-Star Reviews – available worldwide at every major online book sales outlet.
A clean read, romantic, drama, literary fiction novel.
“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
In the book, the main character is a young boy, but in the movie, Ken’s a girl – either way, a child who loves a horse, is a child who loves a horse. This horse, however, is dangerous, wild, and unpredictable – both horse and child need each other. One of my favorite books about horse lovers, Flicka should be read and the movie visited often by all children, teens and adults alike.
Old-fashioned love during a time of war, who gets the girl? All the dynamics of a great story and read, turned to film repeatedly over the years. War. Love. Best friends. Danger. Death. Randall Wallace wrote with such care the words that make you feel, see, hear, and smell this horrid war surrounding a love structured to last a lifetime. Pages turn like the frames of a film reel, and your mind sees everything unfold. Five thumbs up for this book, and film.
