This book starts out slow and takes a little while to get into but it is well worth doing. This book is about human nature. Samantha Moore writes letters to the person giving her a grant to go to school under the name of Mr. Knightley. This book spans an 18 month period in which you become a part of Samatha’s life. She grows over the time in this story and you are able to feel the strength of human nature as she grows and sheds the skin of her past and becomes a beautiful butterfly. I loved this book!
