The Butterfly Summer
Harriet Evans is the Sunday Times bestselling author of A Place for Us and The Butterfly Summer is her must-share new novel about Keepsake, a house in Cornwall that comes with a family legacy every bit as full of danger as it is of wonder.
'The Butterfly Summer is an amazing achievement; heart-stopping and wonderful. It's an epic, sweeping, romantic story told brilliantly... I could practically feel the butterflies brushing against my cheeks as I read' Sophie Kinsella
'[A] delightfully engrossing tale. . . Romance, danger and an intriguing legacy - an ideal holiday read' The Lady
The Butterfly Summer is packed with unexpected plot twists that will make you gasp out loud and move you to tears - you'll be desperate to add it to your shelf alongside the best of Santa Montefiore, Jojo Moyes and Kate Morton.
What magic is this?
You follow the hidden creek towards a long-forgotten house.
They call it Keepsake, a place full of wonder ... and danger. Locked inside the crumbling elegance of its walls lies the story of the Butterfly Summer, a story you've been waiting all your life to hear.
This house is Nina Parr's birthright. It holds the truth about her family - and a chance to put everything right at last.
Harriet Evans. She brings you home.
Two things happen when you are a Parr girl: when you are ten, you are told about your future role.
The second thing that a Parr girl at some point must learn is harder to tell of.
It is a dark work indeed, the business of this house, hidden from the world.
