 Title: Butterfly
Author: Sibel Hodge writing as Elle Harper

Grace Elliot is falling apart. Overwhelming tragedy has turned her world into a dark and lonely place. Facing the pain and the ghosts is impossible. Hiding her secret behind a mask of confidence and living a lie is the only thing she knows how to do. She's alive...but not living.

Counsellor Ben Hardy is certain he can help Grace heal. Maybe it's a way to rid himself of the demons haunting him from that one horrific night when his life shattered.

When they meet, everything changes, and their pasts offer them a remedy to save each other...until Ben's traumatic history threatens to destroy the trust they've built.

Will the truth tear them apart? Or will it force them to understand the healing power of forgiveness and love?

Four Stars 
Butterfly was an instance of two incredibly sad stories that come together to find healing and a HEA!

'The butterfly is powerful symbol of metamorphosis. The way we can move through different cycles in our lives and find happiness again.'

Grace Elliot has suffered something no woman should ever have to, especially at the hands of someone who is supposed to care for her, and it has totally broken her! Though she is incredibly good at hiding that pain in public, she is completely shattered inside. Grace does know one thing though. If she is ever going to get through this she needs help! Professional help. She just can't bring herself to go for it.

When your soul cries, no one can hear it, and the wounds you can't see hurt the most.

It is on a failed attempt at group therapy that she catches Ben's eye. She is running from the women's center when Ben Hardy sees a pain in her eyes that he recognizes immediately. Because it was the same pain his sister had before she gave up and took her own life. At this point I like to think fate intervened and pushes them together. Simply because they need each other.

"You are not a rape victim, Grace, you're a survivor. And you're not ordinary, you're extraordinary for surviving." ~Ben

Ben has a big secret in his past as well, but he is now a counselor getting certified in rape counseling to help women and he teaches a self defense class. See....Fate!

Grace can't believe she can be with Ben, who is a former MMA fighter and HUGE btw, and she doesn't feel threatened. She actually feels safe and when she reveals what happened to her he helps her by teaching her ways to cope and get through the pain. Now as you can imagine, they fall in love. Oh, don't get me wrong, it's a long beautiful, bumpy ride but they get there!

This was a beautiful story of two broken people who help each other through the pain and healing to find love and a life together!
