It takes many different expressions and reflects everything from her feelings to her word formations. When a woman purses her lips to say " When" her lips will naturally take the form of the woman on the cover. If you actually read the book you will discover that the cover expresses completion of Little Sparrow's burning quest. Hopefully this helps your understanding. Thank you for your interest.

When you form your lips to say the word "When" you get that same facial look. The woman on the cover is forming the word "When" because she wants to make love. The cover symbolizes her triumph of waiting for and ultimately marrying Bob at the Pepke Park Gazebo in Aspen, Colorado. Hope this helps. Rosemary(less)

This book had me captivated from the first page. It is the must-read sequel to 'The Secret and the Butterfly'. There was plenty intriguing history of the banking, financial and legal systems, the Jewish religion and insight into how the deranged mind of a psychopath works. The author skillfully presented each character's point of view that I felt I was really seeing things through their eyes. The story is also very heartwarming as it shows that love can overcome any obstacle. I thoroughly enjoye ...more

Where does the madness end?

This is the second book in Rosemary's Butterflies Series, and it couldn't have been anymore different from the first. Once again Rosemary's extraordinary writing skills shine in the telling of her tale.

Right from the beginning it is obvious that David has gone comepletely mad! I don't just mean he's a wee bit crazy - no the man is totally insane!!! It is also obvious that Barbara is totally head over heels in love with Bob, why can he not clearly see this? Why do David

This is one of the strangest books ever. Altho the author has a disclaimer at the beginning, nothing prepared me for it. It's as though two people wrote this book; one perhaps on meds and the other who has stopped medication and rants and raves. Having said that, I did really enjoy the story lines. A very interesting book from a very imaginative author. I encourage you to read this book to decide for yourself. ...more

Having read " The Secret and the Butterfly " I thought I knew what to expect , well I was blown away !

Within the first few pages I'm convinced David has lost the plot , as in the wheel is turning but the hamster is dead !

The hair on the back of my neck stood up and I could feel the fear and madness . I actually squeaked , yes I kid you not ,I squeaked and on more than 1 occasion !!!

I'm not often at a loss for words and all I can say is you must read this for yourself and come back to me !

No reason

Just not my mind of book too much spent on political and economic stuff. But you do have your phsycopaths lots of good sexy stuff and if you like paranormal this may be your thing.

This was a well written story, but got harder to finish due to the religion shoved at me. Not a favorite but I really tried to get through it. Felt like work...sigh.

This book for me was just weird. I almost always keep reading a book and hope that it gets better. But, I only got halfway through this book before I gave up on it.
