Review- The Cries of the Butterfly by Rajeev Roy

Synopsis: Wolf Butcher was the world’s most privileged man, with everything any human being could ever ask for. That is until one bright spring morning, when in one cruel stroke, he loses it all – including his beloved daughter. Unable to cope, and on the brink, he is rescued by two seemingly unrelated strangers: Savannah, a beautiful 29 year old discarded woman; and Robin, a sparkling 8 year old orphan girl being raised in a children’s Home. Wolf desperately needs them both – to survive, to breathe again. But then Wolf is tossed a cruel and impossible ultimatum by the powers that be – choose one of them! It’s an ultimatum he simply cannot accept. Fatally trapped, with no way out, and with three lives at stake, Wolf is compelled to make a stunning and disturbing decision…a decision that’ll impact not just three lives, but rock the whole nation.

It is a compelling story of love, lies, manipulation, politics, struggle and sacrifice. Just when i thought it was about to end, a new twist would appear. The Butcher family loved each other deeply and experienced great loss but they have their dirty secrets just like any other family.The only thing I disliked about the book was it seemed too long. It definitely has enough action and mystery for it to actually to be two books. The main characters are all likable and well developed. The story continues at a steady pace keeping the interest as you try to figure out will Wolf, Savannah, Robin, Rochelle and Grant find the happiness they ultimately deserve. I would recommend this to anyone who loves suspense and drama, this book is filled with it!
