Genevieve Meyer always felt like a throw away child - a lost cause that no one wanted to invest anything into. "When I was married off at 15 that feeling was solidified. People knew it was going to happen. I even asked for help - a place to live, someone to intervene - but no one rescued me. I was just a 'poor white trash girl' with a difficult, mentally-ill mother and no one gave my being married off to a 42-year-old man a second thought."
Child marriage is currently legal in all but one state in the U.S. The repercussions of this reality are real - domestic violence, inability to complete education, lack of job skills - all leading to being trapped in the marriage.
Genevieve's chosen Human Book title, Resilient Butterfly, reflects the internal healing and transformation she has made throughout her life to be the compassionate, whole human being she is today, ready and able to turn around and share her wisdom with those Readers who have the privilege of sitting down and talking with her.
