I had recently finished a great book by Sue Monk Kidd called, When the Heart Waits. In the memoir, she chronicles her journey through a mid-life dark night of her soul. It is a really good book.
The metaphor she uses throughout is that of a caterpillar metamorphosing into a butterfly. She weaves beautiful prose with science with personal experience and spins a cocoon, you could say, that really touched me.
Multiple times she mentions Yellow and Stripe, two characters from a book I read once and have loved ever since called Hope for the Flowers....
