I felt the book was a bit slow in the beginning. It was not a quick read for me because I found myself rereading descriptions and slowly devouring every detail in the book.
If you are looking for quick, mindless read, I would not recommend this book. If you are looking for a thoroughly detailed story of relationship trials, family trials, and decisions of the heart, then The Butterfly Storm would be a perfect book.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
After whirlwind romance while on holiday in Cephalonia, Sophie leaves everything and everyone behind in from her home in London to move to Greece with her handsome and care free boyfriend, Alekos. They've made plans to make their career dreams come true. But upon arrival all of the dreams the two had talked about fall to the wayside as Sophie quickly learns that the confident and outgoing man she fell in love with is a mama's boy who lets his mom walk all over him. Despina, Alekos's mother, has already made plans for the couple working and living in the family run restaurant. Neither are happy but Alekos won't stand up to his mother. So they live in a tiny bedroom above the restaurant along with Aleko's parents and work in the family restaurant 6 to 7 days a week for 12 hours a day. They have no private life.
Alekos never sticks up for what he and Sophie want leaving Sophie unhappy and feeling like she will always be second place to his mom. Her dreams have died and after a family emergency brings her back Marshton Village, where her mom has moved, she's not sure she wants to go back to Greece. When Alekos finally comes to see Sophie for her birthday he shows up with his mom. He was to afraid to tell Sophie his mom was coming along on the trip knowing she will be upset. Sophie is outraged and decides that's the final straw. She will not go back to Greece even though she still loves Alekos. But she's conflicted because she is keeping a secret from Alekos. Eventually they get their HEA but it's not until the last few pages of the book. I honestly thought there was going to be a sequel because there was no ending in sight until the very last couple of pages.Read more ›
That being said, over all, it is a really good book. The guy is a pussy, but he mans up....AT THE END OF THE BOOK!!! It's a beautiful story of love and finding yourself. It's realistic.

She had a storm within her that was resolved . There were stories of restoration .
Interesting story with realistic characters. While this writer does a great job both technically and telling a good story, I would like to have seen more postive, joyful moments. Read morePublished 21 months ago by learn to live now
