Inspired by the ballad ‘Scarborough Fair’, this novel tells the tale of Lucy and an ancient family curse. Through generations, the women in her family gave birth at seventeen and fell into madness – because they hadn’t been able to achieve three impossible tasks. But headstrong, seventeen-year-old Lucy is determined to break the curse. She sets out on an impossible quest with the loving support of her boyfriend, foster parents, her unborn daughter. A suspenseful and deeply moving fairy tale, starring a highly authentic teenager – just like the song, this book will linger in your mind long after reading.
