My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In living a life that was true to his heart, Gabriel made others uncomfortable. This story explores the ways in which, for years, Gabriel’s relationships fall short of creating fulfillment in him and those he is connected to. The beautiful prose pushes the reader to explore the paths hate has the opportunity to take. Ugly emotions can drive even the best people to act in truly disgusting ways but The Butterfly Lady offers, in a poignant way, an alternate path not taken.
