Brushed by the Butterfly s Wings Book Description:

Depicting the painful start-and-stop process, which is an inevitable part of humankind’s quest for a more enlightened world, BRUSHED by the BUTTERFLY’S WINGS presents the first three decades of the Twentieth Century as a complex period in which a visionary few are beginning to see the errancy of an unjust society and its retentive belief systems. Set in the Southern-most foothills of the Appalachians, it is a fictional account of those few, of the circumstances that propelled them and the resistance that they met; a story of human courage, which pits family member against family member and an idealistic minority against a complacent majority who can see neither a reason for nor the irreversibility of a restlessness that seethes beneath a facade of false civility on the part of some and painful acquiescence on the part of others. A must-read for anyone interested in the deterrent effects of a world more comfortable with the supposed wisdom of traditionalism than with new conceptual realities and the changing paradigms that accompany them.
