Tam Lin Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Tam Lin

This great book tells the story of Janet and her friends at college. At first everyone and everything is as they appear to be, but gradually Janet realizes that some of her friends and professors are not entirely earthly. This is a sort of coming-of-age book about intellectual college types and the fantasy element is sublimated for much of the book, playing a major importance at the end. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves reading.
