Benjamin Franklin Pinkerton and his wife Kate bring a three-year-old Japanese boy home to their Illinois farm. But when their neighbors learn the truth about the boy's heritage, the fallout is devastating.

    " Love the idea of the storyline tying in with the opera Madame Butterly. Still thinking about the book although I ultimately decided that I didn't end up liking either of the main characters. Also, the ending left me with some questions but I don't feel like the author tied up the most important story lines and left us with an idea as to what happened with some of the other characters. Although I would have liked more loose ends tied up, I can live with how she ended things. The book wasn't necessarily a page turner til half way through however, it was well written and I liked the parallel story lines. I would recommend this to others. "

    " A very interesting "after Tale" of the famous opera Madame Butterfly. A "whatever happened to..." story. I really enjoyed it. Lush with intriguing yet deeply flawed characters. "

    " It's not often you begin a novel feeling you already know a character, but in Butterfly's Child, author Angela Davis-Gardner creates a life for Benji, the child of Co Co San and Pinkerton from Puccini's opera, Madama Butterfly." This is a lovely read, the unfolding of Benji's life with his family in America. To read this book is to travel on an adventure - the plains of Illinois, Denver, San Francico, and finally Japan. The poetry of Davis-Gardner's descriptions envelop and hold the reader. This was a story I wished would continue. "
