This week I am eagerly anticipating:
The Butterfly Summer by Harriet Evans
Publisher: Headline Review
Publication Date: May 19th, 2016
Summary (from Goodreads):
Harriet Evans is the Sunday Times bestselling author of A Place for Us and her new novel, The Butterfly Summer, is a compulsive tale about forbidden and enduring love and the secrets we keep that somehow grow beyond all proportion. You’ll be desperate to add it to your shelf alongside the best of Santa Montefiore, Jojo Moyes and Kate Morton.
‘Harriet Evans is a master at creating characters you feel like you know inside out’ Heat
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.
Why am I waiting for this book?
To be honest, this book grabbed my attention when I saw people were talking about it on Twitter, and those who were lucky enough to get an early copy of it all seemed to like it.
The premise sounds really good, the cover is just beautiful, but what “bought me” to add this book to my tbr list is the video with some readers’ reactions after reading this book. When I saw many emotions written on their faces, I just knew I have to read this and find out what my reactions to this beautiful novel will be.
