The Patron Saint of Butterflies

The Patron Saint of Butterflies, by Cecilia Galante

Living in a religious commune, Agnes and Honey--along with the other Believers--keep quiet a violent secret, but when Agnes's grandmother makes an unexpected visit to the commune and learns the truth, she seizes the opportunity to remove the children. As the girls try to negotiate the world outside of Mount Blessing, Agnes clings to the faith she loves while Honey looks toward a future free of control, cruelty, and preferential treatment.
