Federica Campione adores her father. No matter that Ramon, a distinguished traveller and writer, spends months away from their home on the exotic Chilean coast; as soon as he's back, his daughter has eyes for no one but him.
When he gives her a magical box from Peru she believes he will always be there for her.
As she grows to womanhood, Federica attempts to recapture that long-forgotten sense of security in the arms of the debonair Torquil Jensen.
From the sanctuary of a seemingly perfect marriage, she embarks on a painful journey of self-discovery.
But can Federica ever truly escape her gilded cage and learn the true lesson of the butterfly box?
