The Butterfly Cabinet by Bernie McGill - Book Review

Title: The Butterfly Cabinet
Author: Bernie McGill
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Publication Date: 5th July 2011
Pages: 240
Format: E-Book - PDF
Genre: Literary Fiction
Source: ARC from Galley Grab

A secret shared. Two lives entwined. Finally the past must come to light. (Goodreads Synopsis)

On the whole I found this a beautifully written story, but I did have trouble really engaging with it.
For that I do not blame the story though. I received this as a free ARC from Galley Grab but the formatting was all over the place. It was a bit of a strain trying to read it when half the lines were so faint you could barely see them and the other half so black and bold it hurt the eyes.
What I could get out of this book, I enjoyed though, so I will consider rereading it in hard copy in the future.
One for literary fictions fans, but I would recommend the print book rather then the ebook in this case.
