There comes a time in all our lives when we must do some soul searching. With a bad economy, war, and mistrust of each other, we often tend to only focus on the negatives.

Author Diana Webb has taken us on such a soul-searching journey as we follow Christel the Butterfly rediscovering herself. It’s not an easy journey but one that needs to be completed to find happiness with ourselves. While visiting different countries and coming in contact with many people, we are given an insight into what we need to do to know ourselves. The topics range from choices we make, to self-destructing, and believing in a higher power.  I don’t think everyone has to believe in a God, but should believe in something that is going to help them make good choices.

By providing readers with her down-to-earth voice and providing examples of her own journey, “The Butterfly Cometh” by Diana Webb is a book that readers will enjoy and will read again. As I read through this book, I made many notations and check marked numerous thoughts or sayings. I do think that this is a book that should be read slowly, contemplating everything that is being said.  No one said life would be easy, but no one said it couldn’t be done either.
