The Time Will Come #29

The Time Will Come is a weekly meme hosted by Jodie at Books For Company, where we can spotlight those books that we've had sitting on our shelves for too long. Books that we really want to read but never seem to get around to.



My pick for this week is Impossible by Nancy Werlin. I've had this to read for ages and I think it sounds really different.


Synopsis from Goodreads:
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?

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 and haunting novel of suspense, romance, and fantasy.





I like the idea of a fairy curse based on an old song. Has anyone read this? I've read some mixed reviews about this book, people seem to either love it or hate it.

  1. I've read it. It was a very enjoyable read but I felt as though it were two stories shoved together. You might see what I mean when you read it. Impossible is good though, so don't hold off too long :)

  2. I have to admit I don't really like retelling's (as I don't like fairy tales!)
    I know lots of people are loving these sort of books right now, I hope you do too =)
