I have always loved books ever since I learnt to read. The sort of person who would look at an instruction manual if there were nothing else available. Not that that has happened too often - I have tottering piles of books not to mention e books. I will read almost anything as l long as it holds my interest. Besides books. I love music, photography, cryptic crosswords and playing Fitz 1 & 2 games.
The Butterfly Summer - Harriet Evans

Loved the cover. A hidden Cornish house with a legacy, secrets, family birthrights and lots of butterflies! Told in a dual time frame from the perspectives of Nina and Theodora (Teddy). Sometimes the toing and froing became a bit confusing, especially on a Kindle and it took a little while to get into the story and it wasn't helped by the fact I didn't quite take to either of the leading ladies. Loved the butterflies, the descriptions of Cornwall and the style of writing - a poignant novel, sometimes sad, sometimes funny. Another best seller from Harriet Evans!
