Publisher's Summary

Full of her trademark mix of unforgettable characters and heartbreaking secrets, The Butterfly Room is the new spellbinding, multi-generational story from Sunday Times best seller Lucinda Riley.  

Posy Montague is approaching her 70th birthday. Still living in her beautiful family home, Admiral House, set in the glorious Suffolk countryside where she spent her own idyllic childhood catching butterflies with her beloved father, and raised her own children, Posy knows she must make an agonising decision. 

The house is crumbling around her, and Posy knows the time has come to sell it. Then a face appears from the past - Freddie, her first love, who abandoned her and left her heartbroken 50 years ago. 

Already struggling to cope with her son Sam’s inept business dealings and the sudden reappearance of her younger son, Nick, Posy is reluctant to trust in Freddie’s renewed affection. And unbeknownst to Posy, Freddie - and Admiral House - have a devastating secret to reveal....

Beautiful as a butterfly

Awesome story. As with all Lucinda’s books one just cannot get enough. I wish I could listen to books of this caliber every single day. There really are not enough brilliant authors in this world in my opinion.

I loved this story from beginning to end, with the narrator doing an absolutely brilliant performance!

Grammar

I was disappointed to hear such a talented writer using I and Myself as subjects. Whilst one may use ‘myself to accentuate - eg. « I, myself, believe this to be correct…., , one cannot say Myself and a friend did something. The story itself, however, lived up to all expectations.

Couldn’t fault it!

This was an amazing read. I’m going back for more Lucinda Riley. I felt that the characters we’re relatable & interesting. Couldn’t put it down. 5 Star effort!

Not up to scratch

I am a huge fan of Lucinda Riley and eagerly snatched up this new book. Whilst her characters and plot were well developed and I enjoyed the story, I often found myself wondering if she'd written it herself or had a ghost writer. There were so many cliches and unimaginative similes and metaphors which I found irritating. I still recommend it though as the story is interesting and has a few surprises.

A beautiful story about a wonderful woman and mother

I really enjoyed this story especially as the main character was such a wonderful woman who loved her family. She was not blind to their faults and dealt with her problems exceptionally well. I felt real admiration for her

Intriguing!!!

Very interesting, with lots of surprises! I love the way the story unfolded. Most of all, it was realistic and true- to- life. Acceptance, forgiveness and compassion were the themes I appreciated most in this story.
