The Butterfly Girl is a beautiful and very moving novel about lost souls. This heart-stopping thriller left me breathless.
Equal parts chilling, tragic and hopeful, Rene Denfeld's new novel combines her haunting, lyrical prose with a page-turning and harrowing mystery, putting The Butterfly Girl into a league of its own. Fans of The Child Finder will devour this.
There is a beautifully plangent, poetic quality to her depiction of a world that she knows all too well.
