Book Spotlight: The Butterfly Room


The Butterfly Room – Synopsis

Inspired by the recent efforts of the Joyful Heart Foundation’s NO MORE campaign and an

existing relationship with InterAct to help raise awareness around domestic violence and

LGBTI rights, proceeds from this book will be donated to Refuge the UK’s largest provider of

specialist domestic violence services as well as Southall Black Sisters, Stonewall, Women’s

Aid and the charities highlighted above.

For years Vikram and his two sisters have lived in the shadow of their powerful father

Rohan. His wife Lakshmi has watched the family slowly disintegrate, living uncertainly within

a web of fractured love, deceit and broken promises.

Determined to change her own life

and those of her children she is now faced with the most dangerous choice of all. A course

of events will now place everything she loves, cherishes and holds sacred under direct

threat, plunging the family inexorably towards a journey of pain, self-realisation and

ultimately heart breaking tragedy.
