“The Secret Butterfly Trail is a raw and heartwarming look into one woman’s search for meaning and purpose in a deeply troubled life, in the same page-turning fashion as Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat Pray Love, and Cheryl Strayed’s Wild.” – Don Kirchner, author of A Matter of Time.
“Troubled by my past and seeking a new life, I suddenly found myself homeless and meandering through the heart of the Midwest. From New Mexico I traveled to Michigan to live with my son and his family.
“With nothing but a bike and a backpack, I made my way following the trails of southwestern Michigan.
“Reconsidering the choices I had made in my life, I did what was for me, the unthinkable. I traveled back to my hometown in New England, which I had left 21 years earlier. On a quest to find a final resting spot for my ex-husband’s ashes, I found more. In death, he led me back home to face what I had run from in the first place – myself. This is a story of death and rebirth, of despair and hope, the journey of my lifetime.” – Zushka Biros
