The Butterfly & The Snail
by Mary Sullivan Esseff
A tenor’s voice, passionate and pure, draws shy Rebecca Butler into the Studentenheim’s crowded social room. Finished singing, Khalil Khoury notices her sitting alone, joins her, then notices no one else. Georgetown University’s 1964 summer program opens; Salzburg’s magic begins.
The Butterfly & The Snail interweaves several heartfelt encounters, creating a fabric of love and intimacy that transforms their lives forever. On one outing, Rebecca loses her footing and tumbles down Untersberg Mountain. Khalil risks his life-and almost loses it-to save Rebecca from falling off the peak. Two days later, Rebecca discovers a newborn butterfly and then spies a snail picking its way up the path. These creatures come to symbolize this couple’s extraordinary relationship. Relaxing on Gaisberg’s hillside, Rebecca reveals the turmoil she’s had to overcome to gain inner peace. Yet, she confesses, her heart’s desire-love-has eluded her. When Khalil reacts with sympathy and compassion, she desires that powerful, mystical love radiating from within him. She asks, “How can I love like you?” His answer binds them together forever.
Six weeks later, the program ends. As Rebecca says good-bye, Khalil hands her an envelope: “Not to be opened until out of Salzburg.” Is this his auf Wiedersehen or the beginning of a deeper relationship? Discover if their magic continues beyond Salzburg.
Willows: The Creole
by Cyndie Shaffstall
In the decades before the Civil War, Louisiana was the most advanced in the rights of people of color—Africans and Indians—and women, including the right to vote. Marriage between races was legal, and mulatto, quarteronne, and octoroon children were recognized by their white fathers and often became business and landowners through gifts or the wills of patriarchs.
The Civil War brought change—any black lineage became cause for discrimination—and many blacks were relegated to occupations not unlike those of their ancestors. The women’s rights movement lost momentum as well, and it was only through the sheer will of women such as Stanton and Anthony, that organizations were formed and the voices of women would come to be heard.
The Arceneauxs have a long history of falling victim to circumstance, but heir to the family home, one woman is determined the legacy needs to end. An abandoned house, a fractured family, and an oppressed people, she leaves New York for New Orleans to confront change head on.
Embroiled in the fleecing of New York’s bridge funds, she seeks out a new life in New Orleans, but in her pursuit, realizes change is not something needed only for her, but for many. The plantation, still worked by the descendants of the slaves who built it, becomes the anchor for her efforts.
