Marian L. Thomas: The Caged Butterfly

  • Third House Books & Coffee 113 North Main Street Gainesville, FL, 32601 United States (map)

Join us for our next installment of the Third House Books Author Series featuring Marian L. Thomas presenting her latest novel, The caged Butterfly.

On December 29, 1930, Mildred "Millie" Mayfield gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Addie.

Millie teaches her daughter three things that she feels matters most in life: inner beauty, reading books and giving your “special something’ only to the man you marry.

Addie lives up to the first two.

On one autumn night in 1949, Addie falls for the irresistible red curls and vibrant green eyes of a young man from the other side of the railroad tracks. Neither knowing that the consequences of their love would have lasting effects.

Known as one of the greatest white jazz pianists in New York, Timmy Taylor never had a reason to question his identity – until truth and betrayal strike. Will Timmy be able to push past the pain?

Beautiful and talented, Nina Taylor inherited her father's gift, but not his looks. Certain that's how he made it big, she begins to bleach her skin. Will Nina learn to love the skin she’s in before it’s too late?

Spanning from 1920 to 1996, this captivating tale of secrets, betrayal, and forgiveness will pull at the strings of your heart, and keep you turning pages while you pray for a happy ending.
