It begins and ends with Keepsake, the house that holds its shadows too tightly.
From Harriet Evans, the author of Richard and Judy Summer Book Club pick The Wildflowers and Sunday Times bestseller A Place For Us, The Butterfly Summer is the IDEAL book to curl up with as the nights draw in. Nina Parr's mother has lied to her for most of her life. But when Nina inherits Keepsake, a long-forgotten house in Cornwall, she pieces together a sad truth that reaches back to the outbreak of war in the 1930s. A must-read for fans of Kate Morton and Santa Montefiore.
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.
