Survive the darkness of the cocoon and you will emerge into the light of day.

In a mesmerizing memoir that is by turns heartbreaking and heartwarming, writer and philanthropist Constance Grays Jones retraces her precarious journey towards truth, love, community, and self-discovery. Tackling issues of epilepsy, depression, infertility, and family drama with refreshing sass, humor, and compassion, she reminds us that we are products of our past but also the creators of our purpose. Her inspiring story is a wakeup call for the soul, showcasing the tenacity of the human spirit, the pockets of sunlight in the darkest corners, and the transformational power of belief and love.

Raised in San Diego in the 1980s, Constance was born to be a Californian dreamer. The fourth of nine children, she grew up with three demons in the dark cocoon of her impoverished home: alcohol, abuse, and absence.

An accident in Constance’s teen years rendered her a lifelong epileptic. As an adult, toxic relationships, misguided spiritual teachings, and close calls with death nearly broke her. Instead of breaking apart, she chose to break free, realizing her heart could sprout wings to take her in the direction of her wildest dreams.

As a woman, we have preconceived notions of how our life's trajectory should be. When in fact, our lives are much more complicated, traumatic and unconventional. It takes pure courage and bravery to design your life, your way as a woman, despite what you have been through. And that is exactly what Constance did! This memoir inspires you to overcome the obstacles thrown your way; to live as a conqueror instead of a victim. Constance encourages you to not be a passenger in your life but to be the driver, solely responsible for the your life's destination. This book will make you cry, laugh, reflect and re-examine your own life journey. This is a MUST read, fore, there is something for everyone in this gem of a book!

This book was received as an ARC from Beautiful Sky Publishing in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own. Constance Grays Jones was born in California and raised to be a dreamer but when a tragic accident occurred almost fatal, Constance knew her life will never be the same. Constance reveals her secrets to saying positive ND discovered sunshine at the end of the tunnel even on the grayest of days . She still remains positive throughout her life and has become one of America's treasured influencers. I was in tears throughout this entire story and I know a lot of people will learn at least a thing or two from reading this book. I know our community will love it hopefully as much as I do. We will consider adding this title to our Biography collection at our library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.

If you want to answer the life question is it nature or nurture that moulds the child, read Emerging Butterfly and decide for yourself. A powerful and moving narrative that is told without drama but written in such a way you cannot help but be moved. Yes I cried, as you read you will probably know exactly where. Like most of us she made decisions she regretted, she also had her choices taken away and decisions made for her but through it all what made her who she was shone through. With thanks to #NetGalley and Beautiful Sky Publishing for the ARC.
