Friday Book Blogging

After a week off, I should have a plethora of books to recommend. However, the only one I can enthusiastically promote is Laurie R. King's Folly.
This is the story of a woman who loses everything, including her mind, and rebuilds herself by rebuilding an ancestor's house. Despite that less-than-stellar synopsis and the fact that the depression described by Rae Newborn as she struggles seems heartbreakingly real, this is a story of hope and (as the main character's name will attest) rebirth.
As expected from Ms. King, the writing is superb. The characters are strong. One day a Laurie R. King book might disappoint me, but Folly is not it.
