Summary

Just when the darkness seems permanent, fate flips a switch. Michael Warner has been drifting in a numb haze since his lover was killed by a drunk driver. As the anniversary of the wreck approaches, Michael’s grief grows more suffocating. Yet he must find a way through the maze of pain and secrets to live for their troubled young daughter who struggles with guilt that she survived the crash. Out of the darkness comes a voice, a lifeline he never expected to find - Rebecca O’Neill, a development executive in the studio where Michael works as an electrician. Rebecca, a former sitcom celebrity left scarred from a crazed fan’s attack, has retreated from the limelight and from life in general, certain no man can ever get past her disfigurement. The instant sparks between her and Michael, who arrives to help her during a power outage, come as a complete surprise - and so does her uncanny bond with his daughter. For the first time, all three feel compelled to examine their inner and outer scars in the light of love. But trust is hard to come by, especially when you’re not sure what to believe when you look in the mirror. The scars? Or the truth?

Phenomenal book

Such a beautiful story that explores the complexity and emotional journey of losing your soulmate, falling in love again, recovering from a painful past, and the challenges that come with being bisexual.

Butterfly Tattoo

4.5 Stars.

Loved this one. Very different spin of a classic troupe - fairly recently widowed Dad, Michael, finds new love with Rebecca but he is bisexual so it was his husband Alex that still has his heart. And of course Rebecca has (literal and figurative) scars of her own to heal from. 8 yr old Andrea was a great character. A few little twists here as well.
