About the Book

Women Who Chase Butterflies is a heartfelt story about finding beauty in life’s finite moments and the infinite possibilities they bring. It reminds us to accept the things beyond our control while changing those we can, and how these decisions will ultimately lead us to become who we are.

Louisa is an introverted and socially awkward young girl born and raised to a family of hardworking immigrants in Hong Kong’s fabled Walled City. She goes on a remarkable journey that brings her to Harvard and Wall Street and later becomes a successful, self-made entrepreneur who starts the headhunting industry in China. A series of personal losses and professional setbacks then causes her to suddenly question things she believed in and the life decisions that led her there.

Like a metamorphosis, Louisa embarks on a journey of self-discovery through writing and realises that everyone has a story to tell and that every story is unique – the more you know yourself, the more authentic the journey will be.
