This is one of the most descriptive books I have read in a long while. I loved reading about the Greek culture and the vivid descriptions of Greece and England. It was hard for me to relate to Sophie's struggles but with such vivid descriptions I could feel her frustrations with both her mum and with her relationships in Greece. Kate Frost created characters that were real; everyday people with real struggles.

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.

Frost, Kate (2013-06-05). The Butterfly Storm (Kindle Location 192). Lemon Tree Press. Kindle Edition

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.

Kate Frost's debut novel is beautifully written. The language and descriptions are well thought out and beautifully written. You can tell that Frost is influenced by travel. Although she's obviously found the perfect niche as a women's lit novelist, you also get the sense she could have become a famous travel writer. Her descriptions of Greece are truly breathtaking, right down to the accounts of the awful, oppressive heat. Frost's characters are also captivating. No uni-dimensional creatures between these covers. Her characters are realistic, with flaws that endear rather than annoy. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to read about relationships, family, or travel, or anybody who just loves beautiful literary fiction.

I finished the book after almost 20 hours of nonstop reading. In between I had to cook lunch, but I forgot that I put it on the stove, and of course I burned the spanakorizo. During that hours, I laughed, I cried, I had an amazing time. I visited places Kate Frost so vivid, so detailed described. It was like i lived every moment with the characters in the book. It is not only a love story, but also like a study of two different cultures and very good, very honest description of the greek mentality.If you are looking for a very good writen book/story, I recomment, read this book! Me on my side, I am looking forward to read the next book of Kate Frost. Well done Kate Frost! The Butterfly Storm

Women's fiction isn't a genre I would normally read, but wow, this one drew me in. Kate Frost has a way with words; her descriptions of both Greece and the English seaside are amazing and I felt like I was really there with the characters throughout the entire book. The characters are all well-rounded - I empathised with Sophie when she didn't know where her life was heading, and definitely felt her frustrations when her Greek family was being infuriating (I actually read this part on my lunch break, and went back to work feeling all cranky - this is a good thing!). There were a lot of moments where I honestly didn't know which way the plot was headed, which decisions the characters would make or who would eventually end up with or without whom, so I was kept on my toes throughout.

First of all, I have to say that the end of this book sucked. I mean, it just ends...no epilogue or anything. No closure. It has a HEA, but you never know how it goes. I hate that.

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.
