There are plenty of books about the French Revolution. Some books are purely historical and some are purely fictional but this book has it all. It tells historical facts in a story format based upon a real woman who lived through it. It was well written and well narrated. I was sorry when it ended.

I have grown quite fond of Lottie Parker and this is a good detective mystery story set in Ireland. The narrator is excellent. I could listen to her all day...and I did.

Near an isolated mansion lies a beautiful garden. In this garden grow luscious flowers, shady trees...and a collection of precious "butterflies" - young women who have been kidnapped and intricately tattooed to resemble their namesakes. Overseeing it all is the Gardener, a brutal, twisted man obsessed with capturing and preserving his lovely specimens.

The person reading the book did a good job but I found her voice irritating. Her voice reminded me of someone who I didn't like and I just couldn't get past that so I didn't finish the book. There were times that I learned some useful and important info but the characters. we're just too perfect, almost smug and a bit judgemental. That may have changed as the story progressed but I couldn't get there.
