The Butterfly Girl by Rene Denfeld

Naomi Cottle is an investigator who finds missing children.  But the one child she has never been able to find is her sister.  The two were abducted when they were very young but only Naomi managed to escape.  Now, twenty years later, there is at long last a clue that her sister might still be alive.

Celia is a street child.  Her life is tough and she has seen more things that any child should.  But the local librarian turns a blind eye when she goes there almost every day to gaze at her favourite book, where she escapes, through her imagination, into a world of wheeling, colourful butterflies.

However someone is watching Celia.  Street children have been going missing and the town has been turning a blind eye.  It is only when Naomi turns up, looking for her sister, that they find someone who will listen to them.  And someone who might give them hope.

Peer & Press Reviews

Equal parts chilling, tragic and hopeful, Rene Denfeld’s new novel combines her haunting, lyrical prose with a page-turning and harrowing mystery, putting The Butterfly Girl into a league of its own.  Fans of The Child Finder will devour this.

Mary Kubica, author of The Good Girl

There is a beautifully plangent, poetic quality to her depiction of a world that she knows all too well.

Sunday Express

The Butterfly Girl is a beautiful and very moving novel about lost souls.  This heart-stopping thriller left me breathless.

Shari Lapena, author of The Couple Next Door
