Praise
"Werlin unobtrusively and intriguingly brings the historic ballad into the twenty-first century, merging the old-fashioned tasks with contemporary solutions."
"This delicious conceit of inflicting a fairy-tale conundrum on a modern-day high schooler means that Lucy, her foster parents, and Zach employ Google and eBay, along with old-fashioned true love, in their suspenseful battle to break the curse and best the evil Elfin Knight."
"This unique story flows smoothly and evenly, and the well-drawn characters and subtle hints of magic early on allow readers to enter willingly into the world of fantasy."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Lucy has nine months to break an ancient curse in order to save both herself and her unborn daughter. Inspired by the ballad Â?Scarborough Fair,Â? this riveting novel combines suspense, fantasy, and romance for an intensely page-turning and masterfully original tale. Lucy is seventeen when she discovers that the women of her family have been cursed through the generations, forced to attempt three seemingly impossible tasks or to fall into madness upon their childÂ's birth. But Lucy is the first girl who wonÂ't be alone as she tackles the list. She has her fiercely protective foster parents and her childhood friend Zach beside her. Do they have love and strength enough to overcome an age-old evil?
Annotation Seventeen-year-old Lucy Scarborough was date-raped on prom night and is now pregnant with her first child. This seems bad enough, but then Lucy discovers that all that has befallen her is actually part of a curse that was placed on her family generations ago. Will Lucy be able to break the curse and forever free herself and her family? The author has said that she was inspired to write this story by the lyrics of the folksong SCARBOROUGH FAIR.
