The Butterfly Garden - Dot Hutchinson - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Butterfly Garden:

Kidnapping a beautiful collection.

My favorite Dot Hutchinson quote from the book:

"Because courtesy is as much of a bitch as disdain."

Questions to ponder while reading The Butterfly Garden:

Could you force yourself to live under those conditions?

Could you recover?

My review of the book:

A very scary tale.

A very engaging read.

The family dynamics stretched plausibility a bit.
