From the Publisher
A beautifully wrought modern fairy tale from master
storyteller and award-winning author Nancy Werlin
Inspired by the classic folk ballad "Scarborough Fair," this is a
wonderfully riveting novel of suspense, romance, and fantasy. Lucy
is seventeen when she discovers that she is the latest recipient of
a generations-old family curse that requires her to complete three
seemingly impossible tasks or risk falling into madness and passing
the curse on to the next generation. Unlike her ancestors, though,
Lucy has family, friends, and other modern resources to help her
out. But will it be enough to conquer this age-old evil?
