"O, I forbid you, maidens all,/ That wear gold in your hair,/ To come or go by Carterhaugh,/ For young Tam Lin." The sixteenth century Scottish ballad "Tam Lin" has metamorphosed into almost countless songs, plays, and even a movie. Now it emerges again, artfully recreated by debut novelist Katherine Harbour. In this incarnation, its central character is Finn Sullivan, a beguiling 17-year-old who moves to Fair Hollow, a small hamlet in upstate New York with her father after her older sister's suicide. There she falls under the spell of Jack Fata, a member of a hamlet's most prominent family. As she settles into her new home, she learns more about that family and also about the secrets and magic that seem to seem to lurk behind all too many mansion closed doors. A relatively gentle otherworldly tale.
