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.
