Overview

Julia Lang expected a nice night away from the office—free of thoughts about the case, her failed engagement, her past. But she should have known better. Her past haunted her every chance it got these days, and tonight it came in the form of lyrics she never expected to hear again—not after a decade, not in the arms of another man and definitely not in the form of a confession. Now, Julia must discover for herself if the song—and more importantly, the man behind it—is enough to leave her new life for her small-town, Missouri roots and a second chance at love.

And now, look for a preview of "My Butterfly" inside this edition.

What I wouldn’t do to have my very own Will Stephens? The story is breathtakingly beautiful. One of my favorite books of the year, for sure. I almost stopped reading after the first chapter, but I’m so happy that I kept going. It picks up in the second chapter, which introduces us to my new favorite book boyfriend, Will. Keep going after that, ‘cause this one is sure to stay with you for a long, long time.

WOW!  This book was incredible.  I strongly recommend reading it.  I also read it along with My Butterfly which is Will's POV.  It isn't always rainbows and butterflies but it is such a beautiful story.  Julia and Will's story is one of my favorites.  Thank you Laura Miller for sharing their story.

Jules & Will are high school sweethearts that are about to start the next chapter in their lives. They try to stay together & make their relationship work after they go away to separate colleges but like so many long distance relationships, it fails. The story follows both characters over the next ten years. They are living two separate lives but sometimes still cross paths. Butterfly Weeds is an absolutely beautiful love story. It has become one of my all time favorites. It proves that sometimes when two people are truly meant to be that they can find their way back to each other now matter how long it takes. I believe that the epilogue is one of the best ever written & is a beautiful end to a beautiful story. I was very excited to find out that we’ll soon be getting a book from Will’s POV & cannot wait to read it. I’m dying to find out what he was feeling and what he was up to while he & Jules were apart.  -“Do you know why they never give up?...Because they want butterflies to come back to them. They need each other to survive…You’ll be my butterfly, right? You’ll come back to me?” -Will

The concept was good, but I think the writing wasn't great.

This book had all the right ideas. It just didn't work. We learned in passing that they were in love. They broke up and in passing we heard about that as well. what we did lean about was how many different ways the author could write a simple sentence. " My word were swallowed by the earth" this book was like she was writing a poem to her self. We never felt any emotion. There wan never any sparks and then we hear how it all ended. I'm glad it was only $.99.

This story was one of the most beautiful ones I've ever read. (As of today I've read more than 200 romance books). This is definitively on my Top 3 Favorite Books Ever. Its a sweet love story written magestically to keep you glued to the book and make you feel every emotion you could feel. At the end you feel the love and you might be jealous of not havinh Will in your life. This is a must read for sure. I'm pretty sure it will stay with me forever.

Good story, but a little too sweet. There is also too much in-between detail.

This is a beautiful love story of up and downs following your dreams. All dreams dont come true but a perfect love never dies and in the end love really does conquer all. This is such a sweet love story a must read for the hopeless romantic. I haven't cried this hard during a book ever and it wasn't until the last 10 pages that the water works fell. Will and Julia love story will always be the sweetest love story i will ever know nothing beats the sweet words Will says about buttrtfly weeds. I'm still teary eyed writing this review thinking about it. A must read buy it best dollar I ever spent.
