"Victoria, will you marry me?" Those words changed my life forever...just not in the way it would for most. I had it all until one fateful evening transformed my life in ways I never imagined. Nine months later, I move to a sleepy little town, hoping to escape the demons of my past. As I attempt to claim back my life, Jude Montgomery enters my world, and things begin to change. I thought running would appease the nightmares, but I soon discover my past won't let go. Things are not what they seem, and I begin to question the world as I know it. Jude may hold the answers, but will my love for him blind me to the truth? Does the flap of a butterfly's wings in Brazil set off a tornado in Texas? In my case, yes, it does. Will the truth set me free? Or will it imprison us both? My name is Victoria Armstrong, and this is my story...I think.

Chasing Butterflies is a collection of quotations, poems and the simple joys of life. It is about my life and the way I choose to live it for my God, my family and the people I come in contact with every day. The poems and quotations in this book are original and come from my over thirty five years of writing. I decided to write this amazing book for two reasons. Firstly, my Mom who is an avid reader encouraged me to write a book that she could actually sit on her porch to read and enjoy. Secondly, I wanted to share the richness of my life experiences with not just my inner circle but the entire world. Growing up in Jamaica, almost every conversation was peppered or sweetened with Bible verses or quotations. My grandparents, especially my grandmother had “a word” for every situation or problem. My love and appreciation for the spoken word increased as I got older. I soon realized how potent words are. So, I do not use words frivolously. I think about what I say carefully. As my late grandmother would say “weigh your words before you speak, because words carry weight.” The title of this book comes from my love of butterflies. As a young girl, I would spend numerous hours chasing butterflies. I even remember being struck by a passing car as my friend Marcia S. and I chased butterflies on our way home from school. Luckily I was not badly hurt. Chasing Butterflies will not disappoint its readers. It draws from my experiences as a mother, wife, employee, sister, friend and most importantly a child of God. This book will inspire readers everywhere. It will provide support, affirmation, guidance, consolation and laughter. Chasing Butterflies is a book for all season. It is the work of my heart and a timeless treasure that everyone should have in their collection.

Although no one had ever followed North American monarch butterflies on their annual southward journey to Mexico and California, in the 1990s there were well-accepted assumptions about the nature and form of the migration. But to Robert Michael Pyle, a naturalist with long experience in monarch conservation, the received wisdom about the butterflies’ long journey just didn’t make sense. In the autumn of 1996 he set out to uncover the facts, to pursue the tide of “cinnamon sailors” on their long, mysterious flight. Chasing Monarchs chronicles Pyle’s 9,000-mile journey to discover firsthand the secrets of the monarchs’ annual migration. Part road trip, part outdoor adventure, and part natural history study, Pyle’s book overturns old theories and provides insights both large and small regarding monarch butterflies, their biology, and their spectacular migratory travels. Since the book’s first publication, its controversial conclusions have been fully confirmed, and monarchs are better understood than ever before. The Afterword for this volume includes not only updated information on the myriad threats to monarch butterflies, but also various efforts under way to ensure the future of the world’s most amazing butterfly migration.
