About this title

Synopsis:

Brilliantly interweaving past and present, memory and illusion, award-winning author David Hill has crafted a novel of passion and betrayal--and of a woman's furious need to avenge her child's death. The work of a gifted storyteller steeped in the cadences of the modern American South, Butterfly Sunday is at once a seething mystery and a lush, lyrical work of fiction, a novel that explores the nature of sin, salvation, and the revelations that finally set us free.

Butterfly Sunday

Averill Sayres was born on the wrong side of the tracks. But sex and Scripture took Averill places he never dreamed, and now the small-town reverend is breaking his vows with two beautiful women--and married to a woman he'd just as soon forget. But Leona Sayres will not be forgotten. From the day Averill buried her newborn baby girl, Leona has seethed in unspeakable pain, loneliness, and rage. She knows there is only one way to ease her pain. Leona must murder that sensuous man of God, her husband
Averill Sayres.

Suddenly Leona has done the unthinkable. And from out of the silent woods around her parsonage, from the dusty Mississippi hills, come the cries and whispers of her past, of the circumstances that brought her to this time and place: a murderer waiting for justice to arrive. Reliving a life gone terribly wrong, Leona cannot see that she is only one part of a far bigger and more complex drama. For all his lies and secrets, Averill Sayres had secrets beyond her guessing. And for all her talk of loyalty, Leona's own best friend, a beautiful and powerful woman, has played her own role in Leona's fate. Now Leona cannot stop what she herself has set in motion: a chain of events that will unmask an astounding secret and change a town and its people forever.
