Don't know what else to say except it was plodding and boring from the first page to the last. Only book more insipid was this authors book The Spy's bride. Every author has a stinker now and then but two is enough for me.

Who could possibly come to mind when thinking of Lepidoptera studies? One of 20th Century¿s Literati royal members and Russian aristocrat, Vladimir Nabokov. AND one of Napoleonic France¿s royalty, Julien Clermont, the latter being fictional. Brilliantly, Abrams has netted together the study of butterflies and stories to create wonderfully believable characters who begin in a whirlwind of naturalistic (meaning scientific in this era) scene, but quickly move into a scene of espionage, doubt, lies, and secrets. Bullets fly. Interrogations begin. A war wages on the outskirts of their lives, and the hero of our tale is imprisoned. Yet, the gutsy Serena Allen, guardian of the sacred butterflies and budding naturalist, cannot stand by while a potentially innocent man is punished for a crime he most likely didn¿t commit. Sound ¿iffy?¿ Throw in a mischievous young lad, an overzealous patriot and a valet that came straight out of the ¿Batcave¿ (read Alfred) and you have one fascinating tale. The ending came as quite a surprise, yet looking back I can see Abrams¿ subtle hints all along the way (how very clever). I did not want to put this book down once I began it and look forward to more books from Nita Abrams. A must read! Carol Leuchovius
