DetailsSanta Montefiore is an acclaimed new talent in the genre of romantic fiction. The Butterfly Box is her new novel, an evocative story of live and loss, despair and redemption. As a six year old living in Chile, Frederica is given a magical box by her adored, but often absent father. The box contains shimmering crystals in the shape of a butterfly which, legend has it, once belonged to an Inca Princess. It is only after growing up in England, that she learns the lesson of the butterfly box. Santa Montefiore is married to the historian Simon Sebag Montefiore and is the sister of Tara Palmer-Tompkinson.
