Adult Clem decides to make a drastic life change and move to Brighton where she was born Clem has no idea that while there she'll meet someone who knows all about her butterfly box and what happened to her birth parentsAs the tangled truths about her adoption and childhood start to unravel a series of shocking eve. A box decorated with butterflies is all that Clemency Smittson has to link her to her birth family and she has carted the box designed for a baby to sleep in through all the ups and downs of her life Now it is packed into a van once as Clemency makes the move to Brighton following the breakup of a relationship Unfortunately her new beginning comes with unexpected baggage her Mother is moving into the perfect flat that Clemency has found to run her business making re loved jewelleryA chance meeting sets off a chain of events that causes Clemency to reassess her relationships with her mother her deceased father and her new found birth family You can t help but feel for someone whose life story isn t uite what they believed it to be and yet Clemency knew she was adopted after all her parents were white One of my favourite scenes was when Clemency was young her father who took her to a hairdressers to learn to treat her hair properly while her mother tried to ignore the fact that her daughter had a different heritageAs much as I felt for Clemency I have to admit my true sympathy was reserved for Clemency s mother who bravely faces up to the fact that her daughter s birth family also have something to offer and I could see why she was genuinely worried about is the price Clemency might have to pay for the privilegeThe setting is brilliant with the uirky shops and seaside caf complete with hunky barista This is a Dorothy Koomson book and there are few writers that manage to play on my emotions with such a deft hand One minute I m furiously turning the pages to see what decisions characters are going to make while wondering how I would react in a similar situation and then BAM I ve got a lump in my throat as a touching but never mawkish scene arrives leaving me struggling to swallow my cocktailAs is often the case with this author s books there are a number of issues explored but always with the lightest of touches leaving the reader to draw their own conclusions The intricacy mirrors Clemency s work to take an old and unworn pieces of jewellery and recreate them into something that the owner will wear The smaller tales that her customers relate at the start of this process add layers to the story and serve to make the overall story seem realistic Clemency is a real woman with values which are challenged in numerous ways by a variety of people and as a result I was totally involved in her story despite on the surface leading a very different life with few of the concealed elements that our protagonist has to contend withOne of the strengths of this book is that it doesn t pretend not everything is resolved in the way of a happy ever after but after all real life isn t like that people aren t like that but it does finish in a way that makes you feel that Clemency in some way gets to belong in a fundamental way something that she s never felt before

    I have been a fan of Koomson since reading The Rose Petal Beach; but now after the forth book I have realised I have really had enough of her protagonists They all seem to be angst ridden women who endlessly perseverate about what to do and how to avoid hurting or upseting a significant other Koomson is good at writing plot twists but I feel I want variety from her characters The ending of this book was a bit twee as well

    I usually love this author’s writing but this was probably my least favourite of her booksI think there were too many themes adoption grief betrayal and euthanasia Pick two so it’s not so disjointedAlso I just couldn’t root for the protagonist she was actually annoying and needed a good talking toIf you haven’t read a Dorothy Koomson definitely don’t start with this one

  10. says:

    I didn't expect this when I read the back of the book for some reason I expected a different story but I can't exactly say what I was expecting But either way the story was good but not as good as I was hoping so this is a 35 but a weak one
