    The Patron Saint of Butterflies eBook Ê Paperback The Patron Saint of ButterfliesI loved this book I read it in about a 8 hour block it would have been in one sitting except my husband wanted to watch a movie with me It was a touching story of friendship and faith and it gave what seemed to be a realistic view into what life might be like in a sect that is secluded from the worldThe story rotates between Honey and Agnes and they both have very distinctive personalities I don't really understand how Honey was able to become as rebellious as she was she had lived in the secluded world her whole life but there are a few clues to that And poor Agnes I rotated between feeling pity towards her and her brainwashed mind and wanting to strangle her for being so oblivious Experiencing the real world ie WalMart McDonalds etc through their eyes was kind of an eyeopening experienceThe book did an excellent job of not bashing religion which is something that could have easily been done given the subject matterThis book would ma

    The Patron Saint of Butterflies eBook Ê Paperback The Patron Saint of ButterfliesBooks about cults always interest me so I found the premise of this book appealing It tells a compelling story about two girls coming of age in the religious commune where they've lived all their lives and the gradual opening of both their eyes and their minds It's geared toward younger teens so while the story has some violence and disturbing images it's not nearly as graphic and dark as a lot of other books in this genre Overall it's a moving and poignant book about friendship family and finding one's faith for oneself I enjoyed it

    The Patron Saint of Butterflies eBook Ê Paperback The Patron Saint of ButterfliesAm I picky and demanding or is plot the new uality that's a rhetorical uestion people capiche? OK so maybe both are true? I thought The Patron Saint of Butterflies by Cecilia Galante was great but it would have been a real stunner if the literary loose screws were tightened up More evocative descriptions better character nuances leaner word choice and most of all an original voice it pains me than usual with this book because dammit it could have been a masterpieceSomehow despite these disappointing ualities I was completely riveted and whipped through it in two days My math teacher gave me a dirty look because I was just maybe reading under the table didn't hear it from me I had never thought to contemplate all the emotional connota
