Five generations of Butlers carve fields out of southernmost Ontario forests, plant orchards, and finally sell parcels for urban development. Throughout those generations, readers witness secrets, tragedies, unrequited love, and seasons of sunshine and glory, ending in an astonishing revelation. Like the Monarch butterflies who take five generations to make the round trip of their migration, 40-year-old Liz returns to the old farmhouse. Monarchs form a constant backdrop for this polished novel by one of Canada’s most talented authors. (McClelland & Stewart)
