9780425241172: Lady of the Butterflies

One of the great natural scientists of her age, Eleanor Glanville was a woman ahead of her time-the beautiful daughter of a seventeenth-century Puritan nobleman whose unconventional passions scandalized society. Her life was marked by two reckless preoccupations: a fascination with science-especially the study of butterflies-and a tempestuous love affair with the dashing soldier Richard Glanville that nearly cost her everything she held dear.

About the Author:

Before she was an author, Fiona Mountain was a press officer at BBC Radio 1 for ten years. Her books include Bloodline, Lady of the Butterflies, and Pale as the Dead. She lives in the Cotswolds with her family.

From AudioFile:

This sweeping historical masterpiece, loosely based on the turbulent and fascinating life of Eleanor Glanville, the distinguished seventeenth-century English entomologist, is beautifully and elegantly presented. In a soothing British aristocratic accent, Josephine Bailey brings to life this time of political upheaval--of Roundheads and Cavaliers, superstition and prejudice. As land speculators seek to cash in on the draining of the wetlands of Eleanor's estate, she dares to be different--and pays a high price for her choices of love and friendship and her fascination with nature. The detailed historical facts mixed with romantic fiction are a powerful combination. A fascinating book is made even better by Bailey's gifted storytelling. A.C.P. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
