A beautifully wrought modern fairy tale from master storyteller and award-winning author Nancy Werlin Inspired by the classic folk ballad “Scarborough. Impossible. by Nancy Werlin. Seventeen-year-old Lucy Scarborough appears to lead a normal life. She is a junior in high school, runs track. I’ve been wanting to read this book for a long time. Last week, amid my Christmas book-buying frenzy, I picked up Nancy Werlin’s Impossible as.

Everyone is shocked when she begins to attack, throwing glass bottles at everyone in the yard.
Faced with this new ‘understanding’ of the ballad, Werlin set about fleshing out their story; clearly, there was once something between them, but something soured it. She must manage to complete three seemingly impossible tasks, or else she will fall into madness.
Impossible by Nancy Werlin
It sort of made me want to read it because I knew Ewrlin hate it. I realize this book is definitely not a crowd-pleaser, and it probably won’t be the one that I recommend to most of my friends, but I totally fell in love with this modern day fairy tale with all its weirdness.
If Lucy can complete three impossible tasks before her baby is born, she will be free, Miranda will be free, and the spirits of the Scarborough women who nanch before will finally be free of the Elfin Knight, who doesn’t relinquish what he believes is his for anything.
Like it inpossible the idea for a seventeen-year-old and a nineteen-year-old to marry in the given situation? Zach and Lucy not do that because lust.
Guess I shouldn’t hold my breath. It’s weird how the mind can play tricks nahcy us sometimes less. I’ve enjoyed every Werlin novel I’ve read, but this is definitely one of my favorites. How Lucy deals with having sex with her virgin husband, after being raped: Most of the plot takes place inside Lucy’s house!! Make a seamless shirt without a needle.
But of course this is not the reason of the one star rating. Main characters in the book do and say stuff that have me thinking WTH Although the story lags ewrlin the middle, it has weflin strong beginning and ending that make up for it, and enough of an original story line to keep your interest. Jan 02, Jessica rated it it was amazing Shelves: In addition, I felt the writer’s style was distracting because she literally repeats herself a lot.
Most of all, Lucy. Many random scattered sloppy POVs. The ending is hokey claptrap only a writer at Werln Movie Network could have dreamed up. I ended up giving it 2 stars since 2 stars indicated “it was ok” and 3 stars indicated “I liked it”, and I can’t say that I wholeheartedly did.
There is nothing romantic about the emotional hardships, prejudice, and financial struggle that Lucy and Zach will face were they actual people rather than characters in a charade.
Zach, lets go check our bedroom Because the “he was possessed” just stinks as an excuse! Unfortunately, the ending is too easy. The poor kid is pregnant. I can fully understand that somebody would decide against an abortion, but to not even consider it in her situation?
Slight, if not major spoilers without warning. So of course lets thrown in a husband However, after taking a break from the book, I continued on and ewrlin up being completely taken by the story. An engaging blend of old world fantasy within a modern day setting. But will it be enough to conquer this age-old evil? What we have here is blatant agenda pushing, and it makes me want to vomit. Their romance was just … imposible.
I distinctly remember reading this book as a middle-schooler, but at the time I’m impossiblee that it had a different name. Lucy Scarborough has spent her life with her adoptive parents because her mother, Miranda, is insane. Unfortunately the author decided to skip it, and move forward to the eve of the wedding day. Just when Lucy is ready to give up on him and attend the prom with a long-time childhood friend, Gray returns, apologizes for running off, and begs her to still be his date.
When I first read the synopsis of this impossibble, I expected it to be full of fantasy; with all the talk about an Elfin Knight who wants to own every one of the Scarborough girls, I expected some mischief from him or something now and then.
What kind of message will most nahcy get from this? With the occasional paranormal element.
