Her first husband dies, seemingly poisoned, freeing Eleanor and Richard to marry. But can their love survive suspicion and prejudice, a bloody rebellion that makes them bitter enemies, and a superstitious community that stirs up hatred toward her for her love of butterflies?
It seems the only peace she can find is in her long-lasting friendship with renowned naturalist James Petiver, a clever young London apothecary who is considered the father of British entomology. But when Eleanor and Richard's son becomes apprenticed to James, tragedy strikes, and Eleanor is forced to embark on a dangerous search for her son that is entwined with a personal quest for truth, freedom, and love.

Lady of the Butterflies
The idea was interesting, a woman stepping outside the boundaries of convention and dealing with the consequences. In my humble opinion, the story did not ring true to the times in regards to the freedoms of the primary character. Also, for me, the narrators voice was far too emotional for various parts of the content.

Credible story line.
As an Anglofile, and lover of Somerset, I found the attention to location detail delightful from the lowland reams to the Mindip Hills. The detail of Puritan beliefs an eye opener.
Will seek out more from this author and narrator.
