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....

so disappointing, unlike Lucinda Riley

this book is like seating at a table with your dull neighbour who gossips about the other neighbours....nothing of interest actually happens and the characters are so uninspiring. I have loved and re-read every single one of Lucinda's books until now. This book is so bad that I'm shocked it was written by her - there is no excitement, no twists and turns, no interesting story, no complex characters. I really hope it's a one off and not her new style...

Great holiday relaxation

A story to get lost in ... loved it. I went to New Hall so the description of characters revisiting it's early years was interesting too. Well researched...

Not one of her best ....

I struggled to get into this one . It lacks a true focus and story journey for me .its a bit like filler , it did the job as I was gardening but not gripping in any shape or form.
