It is a history of the house named ‘Keepsake’ and the Parr family, from the time of Charles II up to present day. Most of the story is set in the 20th and 21st centuries.
Butterflies play a major part in the story, there are many at Keepsake and members of the Parr family travelled abroad in search of others.
This is an intriguing story which once started I didn’t want to put down. The plot is well worked, with many surprises along the way. The characters come to life as the story unfolds, I didn’t like them all but that is necessary for the story.
There is love, sadness, danger, cruelty, anger, misunderstandings and many lies (some of them white ones).
I recommend you to read this. I’ve already reserved another by Harriet Evans. A Place For Us
