Lady of the ButterfliesBook - 2009
The story of Eleanor Glanville, the beautiful daughter of a seventeenth-century Puritan nobleman whose unconventional passions scandalized society. When butterflies were believed to be the souls of the dead, Eleanor's scientific study of them made her little better than a witch. But her life--set against a backdrop of war, betrayal, and sexual obsession--was that of a woman far ahead of her time.
