is a lighthearted telling of a life-changing story. Through the eyes of a lonely young girl, we are first given a fantasy view of life with all its storybook promises. Then as the story continues, we watch her grow from country child to city adult. With each change we relate to the way the human spirit manages to adjust to life’s often harsh realities without losing faith in what can be.
In the end we rejoice with the realization that unlike the caterpillar,people don’t need a metamorphosis to become a new creature.Instead, through the work of the Holy Spirit, we simply become who we have always been!
“Linda Terry captivates readers with this short story of her life experiences. Through gifted communication she allows readers to take a journey with her as she learns to read as a child and then pays it forward as an adult educator. This book is for all ages and for anyone who is ready to spread their wings and fly. This short story will impact many individuals for a lifetime.”
—Rev. Angel White, BS, MDiv, Founder, Faithful Rebuilders
