The annual migration of the monarch is a phenomenal story -- a miracle of instinct and survival. In The Butterfly's Daughter, four very different women embark on a transformational voyage of self-discovery that follows the monarch's journey from the upper Midwest through Texas to Mexico.When Luz Avila's grandmother, the local butterfly lady, unexpectedly dies, Luz is compelled to carry her ashes home to her mountain village in Mexico. Inspired by the Aztec myth of the goddess who brings light to the world, Luz attracts a collection of women, each seeking change in her life. Yet no one's life changes more that Luz's when she meets her long-lost mother, a woman she had believed dead.Their mishaps, trials, and joys are met with humor and compassion, culminating in their triumphant arrival in Mexico...
