*****= An all-time favorite
by Patricia A. McKillip
Reviewed December 17, 2006.
When Sylvia’s Gram summons her home for her grandfather’s funeral, Gram ignores the fact that Sylvia is determined never again to live at Lynn Hall. Sylvia knows that eventually the people of that community will recognize the magic inside her—that her unknown father was fay.
She learns that many people are hiding secrets. Someone who is supposed to protect the hall from fairies makes secret trysts with one of them. A whole Fabric Guild of respectable women of the community exists to keep the fairies in their own realm—there are so many openings in and around Lynn Hall. And when there is a burial, it is hard to keep them shut.
Will Sylvia be able to become the new owner of Lynn Hall in spite of who she is? This is a fairy tale with a sinister twist to it. What if fairies really existed? How would people relate to them?
