This isn't what I was expecting. I was expecting a mystery novel. What I got instead was a lovely meditation about aging and life. I can't wait to talk about this with my book group!

There are three main story lines: the distant past, the recent past, and the present. Each of the threads contain some level of mystery for Sherlock Holmes to solve.

From the publisher:
It is 1947, and the long-retired Sherlock Holmes, now 93, lives in a remote Sussex farmhouse with his housekeeper and her young son. He tends to his bees, writes in his journal, and grapples with the diminishing powers of his mind. But in the twilight of his life, as people continue to look to him for answers, Holmes revisits a case that may provide him with answers of his own to questions he didn’t even know he was asking–about life, about love, and about the limits of the mind’s ability to know.
