My baby is FIVE years old! In 2012, Julia first shared her love story in Butterfly Weeds. And I'll never forget the kind words and real-life stories YOU shared with me on how Butterfly Weeds touched your lives in that first year and each year after. I'm still so honored, and I will be forever grateful! Thank you for accepting Will Stephens and Julia Lang into your hearts five years ago. AND thank you for continuing to keep their story alive through your sweet words and memories! AND TO CELEBRATE, Julia and Will's love story has a new look!!! Check out the new cover on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and iTunes very soon!
Back cover summary: Julia Lang expected a nice night away from the office—free of thoughts about the case, her failed engagement, her past. But she should have known better. Her past haunted her every chance it got these days, and tonight it came in the form of lyrics she never expected to hear again—not after a decade, not in the arms of another man and definitely not in the form of a confession.
Now, Julia must discover for herself if the song—and more importantly, the man behind it—is enough to leave her new life for her small-town, Missouri roots and a second chance at love.
"One of the most beautiful love stories I have ever read."
-Jelena's Book Blog
"Butterfly Weeds is definitely one of my favorite books of 2012; I couldn't put this one down. I was so spellbound by the story of Julia and Will. I will forever love and be captivated by Will Stephens; I only wish I knew someone like him in real life."
-Romantic Reading Escapes
"Beautifully written and sure to leave a lasting footprint on your heart."
-Angela McLaurin, The Indie Bookshelf

I remember the trailers—so many cattle trailers—from neighbors who knew we had animals that needed to get out before the waters came in.
I remember drinking the canned water from Anheuser-Busch.
I remember the Amish and Mennonite men and women (whom we had never met) who traveled from across the country to clean six inches of river silt from our home.
I remember the same Amish and Mennonite men and women who stayed through the winter to build our new home.
I remember the generosity from people in the community.
I remember the gifts that Christmas from the Salvation Army.
I remember the woman from a little town in Massachusetts (who had never met me) who sent me encouraging letters for nearly 20 years after the flood.
My parents had to find a new normal for their family. And some days were hard, especially for them. But today, I am thankful because in 1993, when we lost “everything,” God showed us humanity.
So, if you can, please help those in Texas—in any way you can. It matters. I know. Because it's been 24 years, and it still matters.
I write about rain on tin roofs, gravel roads, old trucks with holes in the floorboards and small-town summer nights. I grew up on a farm in a little Midwestern town. Now, I live in Kansas City, Mo., with my weatherman husband.
