Book Description: Inspired by a true story, Color Me Butterfly follows four generations of mothers and daughtersâ€”haunted by a common specter of domestic abuseâ€”as they discover the strength, hope, and courage to survive. Â The last thing Eloise Bingham wanted was to leave the comforts of her South Carolina home and family. But at the end of World War II, the young wife follows her husband, Isaac, to Philadelphiaâ€”only to experience his sinister and violent temper. Eloiseâ€™s childrenâ€”and their children and grandchildrenâ€”will face their own trials over the next sixty years: Mattie, who has lived in her mother Eloiseâ€™s shadow, finds it takes a life-changing tragedy to help her break free; Lydia, Mattieâ€™s strong-willed daughter, summons the resolve to rise above the cycle of abuse; and finally, Treasure, Lydiaâ€™s lively daughter, has the chance to be the first to escape her familyâ€™s destructive legacy. Â It will take unconditional love, old-fashioned family values, faith, and fearless determinationâ€”already embedded in each womanâ€™s DNAâ€”to triumph over a life plagued with unspeakable pain.
