When three-year-old Benji is plucked from the security of his home in Nagasaki to live with his American father, Lt. Benjamin Franklin Pinkerton, and stepmother, Kate, on their farm in Illinois, the family conceals Benji’s true identity—a child born from a liaison between an officer and a geisha—and instead tells everyone that he is an orphan. When the truth surfaces, it will splinter this family’s fragile dynamic and send Benji on the journey of a lifetime, from Illinois to the Japanese settlements in Denver and San Francisco, then across the ocean to Nagasaki, where he uncovers the truth about his mother’s tragic death.

A sweeping portrait of a changing American landscape at the end of the nineteenth century, Butterfly’s Child explores people in transition—from old worlds to new customs, hearts’ desires to vivid realities—in an epic tale that plays out as both a conclusion to and an inspiration for one of the most famous love stories ever told.
