Description-
  • Lucy Scarborough 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 child's birth. How can Lucy succeed when all of her ancestors have tried and failed? But Lucy is the first girl who won't be alone as she tackles the list. She has her fiercely protective foster parents beside her. And she has Zach, whose strength amazes her more each day. Do they have enough love and resolve to overcome an age-old evil?

    Inspired by the ballad "Scarborough Fair," this spellbinding novel combines suspense, fantasy, and romance for an intense and masterfully original tale.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Emily Durante portrays secure, stable 17-year-old Lucy Scarborough, who is beloved by her foster parents. Soon tension creeps into Durante's voice as Lucy's mad, homeless mother lurks around her school and home. Durante also registers Lucy's anxiety at meeting the strange man with the lilting accent who has charmed everyone at her foster mother's place of employment. Skillfully, Durante transports listeners from a realistic high school story to a suspenseful fantasy. Lucy, and those who love her, must work to perform three impossible tasks to free her from the curse of the Irish stranger, who turns out to none other than the Elfin King. Can they save Lucy from the madness he's brought to generations of women he's impregnated before her? S.W. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
