Live By Night - Dennis Lehane (Book) (Ebook)
On the way to meet her paramour, an Appalachian housewife, suffering from ennui, discovers a giant swarm of monarch butterflies. Once the discovery becomes public, the town is flooded by tourists who have different conceptions as to what it all means. Considered a sign of grace by the local congregation, a natural disaster by the scientists who study the phenomena, and a way to escape the boredom of her hum-drum existence, the story is a study of a small-community and their relationship to environmental changes in our lifetime. When outsiders begin to question small-town ways, she’s left to question (and defend) her own relationship to the community. From Kingsolver, Orange Award Winner.
