Leslie characters The Ballad of Young Tam Lin For me the book started kind of slow But I persevered and it was worth it Patricia Leslie has done a remarkable job of retelling the old story of Tam Lin or The Fairie ueen as I first learned itUsually in this story only one of the two main female characters can be the hero while the other is reduced to some form of villain In Ms Leslie's version however both Daniu the Faerie ueen and Janet the plucky mortal girl are easy to fall

Leslie E navigating an ever shifting maze of love doubt trust fear honour passion and laughable human foibles both lad and lass mature and learn much about themselves But will the young man end by choosing the naïve girl who loves him or another who is the ideal embodiment of passionate womanho. Where do I start I have had this sitting on my Kindle for months possibly tens of waiting for me to get round to it Now that I have finished it I have to decide if I liked itOn the good side for anyone not familiar with the Legend of Tam Lin or corresponding legends of the Seelie Courts and Thomas the Rhymer etc it might be a good idea to look them up briefly before reading These stories will generally already be familiar to British readers This book is a good re telling of the tale well fleshed out with good characterisation and plenty of detail including some references to actual places mostly in the Scottish Borders which helps to add atmosphere though the places themselves are not described in detailOn the bad side it runs to a little over 9000 Kindle locations suggesting something over 150000 words Editing down to 120000 or so would have been a improvementAnd a possible mistake The story is given a fixed set of dates in the late 1700s Now the descriptions of the lifestyles of the main characters the human one that is for that part of the world seem reasonable Reference is made to Puritanism and Presbyterianism and John Knox and the dates check out The weaponry used mostly swords and daggers one mention of a firearm seem OK for that time and place But then there is reference to our heroine reading a novel This made me stop and look at some history but slightly to my surprise for her social background and level of education it is entirely realistic It just didn t feel right and the reason for that was that the legend on which the book is based goes back at least a further 250 years maybe So whilst this book is internally consistent it might have been a mistake to put a date on it at all This sort of legend can stand outside time unless the author decides to re tell it in modern termsIn conclusion This was a long slow read and needed some editing to improve the pace and that has taken it from four stars down to three but as a retelling of a traditional story the author has done pretty well

characters The Ballad of Young Tam Lin Free read Ø The Ballad of Young Tam Lin 108 characters ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Patricia A. Leslie The Saga debuts with an inspired retelling of the centuries old Scottish folk ballad Tam Lin This insightful coming of age story set in the Scottish Borders country takes the youthful and very human protagonists on a fairytale journey of imaginative twists and turns through both humourous. The Ballad of Young Tam Lin is at its core a love story I generally don t go for pure love stories because I find on the whole that they are too predictable too sappy and the characters are too ridiculously ideal that I just become frustrated with them all This book appealed to me at first even as a romance because it is set in the 1700s in Scotland and includes elves As a fan of historical fiction and fantasy this really sounded like it would hit the spot including both genres It did not disappoint I did enjoy the setting of the story as I thought I would but the biggest thing this book had going for it was the characters I felt that the characters were really well rounded easy to relate to and had their faults so that I could truly enjoy them While I would not say that the story was wholly unpredictable there were enough moments of suspense that I wanted to keep reading I should mention that this did not feel like a fast moving can t put the book down kind of book for the most part It was like a summer day kind of book where I was able to relax and enjoy and just picture the world and drink it in and enjoy the story If you enjoy a good love story and can appreciate a story with elves and magic then I would expect you to enjoy this book Note I did receive this book as a first reads win
