The Butterfly House | [Marcia Preston]

The Butterfly House

As a child, Bobbie Lee found refuge from her lonely life at her best friend's house. Rockhaven was a place of magic, colored by the butterflies that Cincy Jaines' mother, Lenora, studied. Here Bobbie found the mothering she longed for and a friend with whom to share her secrets. Her friendship with Cincy and Lenora was the compass by which she navigated the changes of adolescence. But when the tangled intimacies between them began to unravel, Rockhaven became a place of unspeakable tragedy.

Publisher's Summary

One tragic night, Bobbie Lee's life unraveled in a single moment. But what if her perception of the past is based on a lie?

As a child, Bobbie Lee found refuge from her lonely life at her best friend's house. Rockhaven was a place of magic, colored by the butterflies that Cincy Jaines' mother, Lenora, studied. Here Bobbie found the mothering she longed for and a friend with whom to share her secrets. Her friendship with Cincy and Lenora was the compass by which she navigated the changes of adolescence. But when the tangled intimacies between them began to unravel, Rockhaven became a place of unspeakable tragedy.

Now, a decade later, the long shadows of that night continue to haunt Bobbie, despite her attempts to hide from the past. And when a stranger with ties to Lenora and Cincy arrives at her doorstep, she is forced to confront the memories she has tried to avoid. And as the dark secret at the heart of the tragedy slowly emerges, Bobbie begins to discover a future of possibilities.

    "Very Good"

    This is a very good read. Reminded me a bit of "White Oleander," which I liked alot more, but I would still recommend this book.

    "narrator too fast"

    This could have been a good listen but the narrator spoiled it by talking way too fast. The story itself was very good and I would recommend you read the book if you don't like fast narrators
