“What I love about this story is that it is very real. Life isn’t all about living happily ever after and this book stays achingly true to that. There’s plenty of conflict and an unexpected twist to make you emotionally invested. These four women become connected in many ways. Some tragic, some hopeful and some very unexpected. With relationships fracturing, their journeys become a tangled web as they fight for what they need.” – Tracey Rogers, author.
“This has been one of the most refreshing books I have read this year for it’s subject and depth of feeling and knowledge. It’s really touched me and I hope that you will all buy it, read it and be as moved as I was.” – Lisa, The Book Addicted Housewife.
“The book moves along at a good pace and the writing is superb. Each of the characters is interesting, complex and although at times the reader may not agree with their actions, we become very emotionally invested in the outcomes for each. A great book and right up there on my highly recommended list!” – JB Johnston, Brook Cottage Books.

Contemporary women’s fiction novel, The Butterfly Storm, was published in 2013 and is Kate Frost’s debut book. It has more than 100 five star reviews on Amazon and 40,000 readers have downloaded it. This is what some of them have said:
“When so many people give rave reviews about a book I always have this slight fear that I’ll be the one person who doesn’t feel the same. But, on this occasion, all the previous positive comments were spot on and, now I’ve finished reading it, I’m left with a real sense of loss.” 5* review from amazon.co.uk
“Beautifully written, carefully researched and expertly plotted – what more could you want from a book? That this is a debut novel is pretty amazing – I think Kate Frost is definitely someone to watch out for.” 5* review from amazon.co.uk
“Women’s fiction isn’t a genre I would normally read, but wow, this one drew me in. Kate Frost has a way with words; her descriptions of both Greece and the English seaside are amazing and I felt like I was really there with the characters throughout the entire book.” 5* review from amazon.com
“I read a lot, at least one book per week, and this is one of my favourites in a long time. The book is delicious in its detail and I really, really enjoyed the main character, Sophie, and her struggles.” 4* review from amazon.com
“I loved this book. I read it whilst on holiday in Greece which really added to the romance. The gentle yet honest nature of Sophie’s turmoil shows a real talent by the author. The world which is created, with all it’s little intricate details, paints a vivid picture in your mind.” 5* review from amazon.co.uk

Time shifted to the past, three 21st century children fight to survive or risk being lost in time forever.
When Maisie Brown is time-shifted to 1471 during a school trip to Warwick Castle, it’s the beginning of an adventure bigger than she could ever have dreamed of.

Determined to save Danny, Maisie and Lizzie leave the safety of the castle and follow after the army. Battling against everything that Medieval England throws at them, the girls find unexpected help from a Lord with a surprising secret, and discover that two mysterious hooded riders are trying to hunt them down. With time fast running out to find Danny they begin to realise that they have the unlikeliest of allies looking out for them.
