A broken, abused woman must confront her painful past if she wants to embrace the love of her life in author Cindy Patterson’s new novel, “Broken Butterfly” (published by CrossBooks).

Mallory Scott learned early in life not to trust anyone, not even God. After her abusive boyfriend finds her in a women’s shelter, Mallory escapes in the middle of the night. She must depend on the kindness of a stranger to take her to Paradise, Pennsylvania.

Successful and dating a gorgeous girl, Eric lives for others rather than himself. But then chance leads a mysterious woman into his life. He feels an instant attraction, and Mallory seems to feel the same. As Mallory fights to keep her barriers up, Eric discovers her haunted past. Will they ever be together, or will a jealous scheme divide them forever?

Laced with romance and suspense, “Broken Butterfly” illustrates one women’s journey as she learns how to love, be loved and trust in God. Patterson hopes to show readers how God can make anything that is broken, whole once more.

“I want my readers to connect with my characters and to remember them long after they put the book down,” Patterson writes, “and to also give them a hope in Jesus our Savoir.”
