Juniper Boscar is beautiful, spoiled and fabulously rich a charming yet dangerous "golden butterfly." She captivates everyone she meets, yet leaves only heartbreak and destruction in her wake. One of those drawn to her is Polly Frobisher, the gentle but determined daughter of an actress, and custodian of the azure bowl. Then there is Alice Tregowan, the Cornish mine-owner’s daughter, whose own daughter, Grace, is destroyed by obsessional love. From the rugged beauty of Cornwall to the genteel estates of East Coast America and the terrors of war-torn France, The Golden Butterfly is the compelling second volume of the Daughters of a Granite Land trilogy.

A multigenerational novel tracks the romantic adventures of children of privilege in the Roaring '20s. Anne Dover reads this mammoth novel with such expertise that we forget how trivial a work we are listening to. Dover is one of few narrators who can skillfully portray both English and American characters. She makes our heroine, the "Golden Butterfly" of the title, an enchanting and engaging character, and describes the story's balls, seductions, betrayals, and domestic cruelty with style. Listeners will look forward to the other two books in Dover's trilogy, Daughters of a Granite Land. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
