From the author who brought you the national bestselling novel Butterfly Weeds comes the heartwarming story of small-town firefighter Will Stephens.
Will Stephens doesn't chase dreams outside of his small, Missouri town. He's perfectly happy with his high school sweetheart in his arms, his guitar and his quiet summer nights. But life for Will is about to change. He's about to find out what it's like to chase a dream-one he has loved since he first laid eyes on her.
A firefighter by day and a musician by night, Will balances his dangerous career with his weekend gigs, but his mind is never far from Julia Lang. They said their goodbyes years ago, but Will now hopes a song from their past will help Julia stop and remember a life they once shared together. His only fear is that he's waited too long to get his song to her ears

Will Stephens has loved Julia Lang for his whole life, since he was six and would not let her ride on his grandfather’s tractor. When they graduate high school, Julia head off to college and Will joins the local small town fire department. He never gives up on their love and knows there has to be some way to get her back. A group of firefighters start a band, District 9, and Will is the lead singer. A song he wrote for her back in high school is his hope for getting Julia back and keeping her forever. At the beginning of this book I was wondering what I had agreed to read. I had a hard time connecting with the characters and wasn’t sure I would be able to finish the novel. BUT I quickly realized I had it all wrong. I was so invested in Will and Julia that I could not put this novel down, much less consider not finishing it. I loved how they kept coming back to each other, even when Julia was trying her best to move on and find her place in the world and while Will was holding out hope and knowing he would never find another girl that he could love as he loved Julia. The story kept me hoping that a happy ending would come to Will and Julia and the way they got there was amazing. Julia’s story of their relationship is told in Butterfly Weeds by Laura Miller. I have not read this story, but will probably check it out before too long. Will’s story touched my heart. I felt his pain and hope. I knew of his strength in love. Everyone should have the experience of having someone love you as much as Will loved Julia. This is a novel that everyone should read. I recommend it to all my fellow chic-lit readers.
Many times you worry that a different POV book will just repeat the original story, but not so with My Butterfly! This story from Will's POV seems somehow new, even though you already know the story. The emotions you went through in Butterfly Weeds are just as strong in My Butterfly, maybe stronger. It is a heartwarming story of finding "the one"! It will go on my all times favorites list of 2013! I had to order from Amazon to read on my iPAD...very disappointed I couldn't get it for my NOOK!
Would love to be able to get this for my nook?? Loved the first book!!!
