Folly

Laurie R. King: Folly (UK 2002)

From the Publisher:
Rae Newborn, shattered after a nervous breakdown and an attempted rape, is left on a deserted island off the coast of Washington State. Her aim is to rebuild a family house destroyed by fire back in the nineteen twenties. All she wants is to be left in peace, but her nights are haunted by ghosts from her past and her days interrupted by unwelcome visits from the local police and a mysterious intruder.

But her tranquillity is truly disturbed when she makes a discovery in the foundations of the house that throws a dark shadow over her whole family history. What really happened on the island eighty years ago? And what was the truth behind her great-uncle's disappearance? Violence comes down through the years to explode once again on the isolated island, this time threatening to destroy not just Rae but future generations as well.

Laurie R. King: Folly. HarperCollins, ISBN: 0007111347 (July, 2002), 523 p., £6.99.

Folly

Laurie R. King: Folly (USA 2002)

From the Publisher:
An acclaimed master of suspense creates a heroine you will never forget in this superbly chilling novel of a woman who begins a desperate undertaking that may transform her life -- or end it.

What happens if your worst fears aren't all in your mind?

Rae Newborn is a woman on the edge: on the edge of sanity, on the edge of tragedy, and now on the edge of the world. She has moved to an island at the far reaches of the continent to restore the house of an equally haunted figure, her mysterious great-uncle; but as her life begins to rebuild itself along with the house, his story starts to wrap around hers. Powerful forces are stirring, but Rae cannot see where her reality leaves off and his fate begins.

Fifty-two years old, Rae must battle the feelings that have long tormented her -- panic, melancholy, and a skin-crawling sense of watchers behind the trees. Before she came here, she believed that most of the things she feared existed only in her mind. And who can say, as disturbing incidents multiply, if any of the watchers on Folly Island might be real? Is Rae paranoid, as her family and the police believe, or is the threat real? Is the island alive with promise -- or with dangers?

With Folly, award-winning author Laurie R. King once again powerfully redefines psychological suspense on a sophisticated and harrowing new level, and proves why legions of readers and reviewers have named her a master of the genre.

Laurie R. King: Folly (UK 2001)

From the Publisher:
A lonely island off the northwest coast of America. A ruined folly. A woman's fight to reconstruct her life after the devastating loss of her husband and daughter. A threat from the past Rae Newborn, shattered after a catastrophic nervous breakdown and an attempted rape, is left on a deserted island off the coast of Washington State. Her aim is single-handedly to rebuild a family house destroyed by fire back in the nineteen twenties. All she wants is to be left in peace, but memories and real life intrude. Her nights are haunted by ghosts from her past and fears that the monsters lying there will return; her days interrupted by unwelcome visits from the local police and a mysterious intruder. But her tranquillity is truly disturbed when she makes a discovery in the foundations of the house, one that throws a dark shadow over her whole family history. What really happened on the island eighty years ago? And what was the truth behind her great uncle's disappearance after his return, shell-shocked, from the trenches of the First World War?

Violence comes down through the years to explode once again on the isolated island, this time threatening to destroy not just Rae but future generations as well...
