Book Review: The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchison

Book Rating: 4/5 Book Review: Uff, this was hard to get through. Not because of the writing, the writing was great. It was more because of the horrifying, haunting subject matter.

This book was recommended to me by a website based upon other books I’ve read. While it contained romance and a mystery, two things I do indeed enjoy, it was really far from my normal read.  The book begins with a bitter man, Trenton, who is determined to ruin a family and do whatever it…
