Abridged for YA audience. Mary Poser is the butterfly of her family. She lives a modest life in the Country and Western town of Nashville. Simha, an exotic and handsome visiting Bollywood film director, notices her beauty and sparks fly between them. Mary’s world is turned upside-down when her car rolls over a bridge into the Cumberland River. Mysteriously, a hand appears to save her. Mary’s family says it was the hand of God. Mary thinks otherwise. Mary finds counsel with her aunt, Sara, who works with the butterflies at the Zoo because she cannot bring herself to cross the bridge that almost took her life. Simha returns to Mary but her ex-boyfriend, Jason, seeks to intervene by rekindling their relationship. To everyone’s surprise, Simha makes a Bollywood film in Nashville. Jason proposes to Mary with his own distracted affections for another. Mary must reveal her darkest secret as she stands at the altar to marry Jason.
