I have been a fan of Laurie King since I first stumbled upon The Beekeeper's Apprentice (the first of her Sherlock Holmes mysteries). I have read just about everything she's written and feel that this is the best of her non-Holmes writings. It is psychologically very sophisticated with great character development. The Holmes stories are great page-turners and fun if you like Holmes, but the depth of plot and character development are nowhere near what this novel has to offer, in my opinion.

Laurie B. King writes in depth and wonderfully. Folly is about a woman grappling with depression and possible insanity who tries to build a home by herself on an inherited island called Folly. What ensures is great reading!
