9780747568100: Shooting Butterflies

By the time Grace is eighteen, she has been orphaned, moved countries and lost touch with her only brother. Talented, awkward and a little fierce, she can't help thinking that she's managed to lose anything she's ever loved. So she decides to revisit her past in America, and she's brought her camera - she's going to catch these memories and pin them down to keep. What she isn't expecting that summer in New Hampshire is to meet the love of her life. Some years later, now divorced and flourishing as a controversial photographer, Grace lives alone - she likes the fact that everything will be exactly where she left it. Until Grace finds that she is, quite literally, being haunted by the past...

About the Author:

Review:

'This gripping and moving story is an honest chronicle of what happens to relationships over time, and a sharp observation of one woman's emotional life' The Times 'A perceptive and delicately written study of human relations and motivations, painful, funny and fresh, which Cobbold has structured quite ingeniously, building the story layer upon layer, rather like a painting.' Observer 'This moving tale of love lost and found centres on Grace, who by 18 has been orphaned ... this poignant novel is a reminder of how we look for love in all the wrong places' Hello
