From the Back Cover
'A compelling psychological suspense novel from the award-winning author of 'The Birth of a New Moon' and 'Night Work''
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.
'"Well-written with an engrossing plot and a welcome depth to the central character. 'Folly' is unreservedly recommended"'
CATH STAINCLIFFE, 'Manchester Evening News'

A few loose ends leave you wondering where Rae, Tamera and others in the story go from there. But an intricately woven story.
