Summary
"Horace Winter has lived an unexceptional life. Ever since that long-ago day, when the Very Bad Thing happened, he prefers to spend time with his butterfly and moth book instead of with other human beings. But when Horace retires from his job as assistant bank manager and, he struggles to adjust to a life without routine, he receives a devastating prognosis and is forced to confront the life he has (or hasn't) led. As he does, he meets Amanda. and Max. He gets a man jailed (sort of) and rescues the man's son (sort of). He discovers a letter that his father never posted, and sets off on a quest that changes everything. As Horace begins to let life in, he starts to experience a world which had almost entirely passed him by. Will he discover the man he was meant to be before it's too late?"--Page [4] of cover
Summary
Horace Winter has spent forty-seven years working in a Dublin bank, and doesn't, strictly speaking, have friends. But then he meets Amanda and Max. He discovers a letter his father never posted, and goes on a mission to find its addressee; he gets a man jailed (sort of) and rescues his son (sort of); he learns to fly a model airplane and takes his own first flight abroad, to answer one central question: is Horace Winter a Butterfly? Or is he a Moth?
