A novel with a protagonist named Fern? We’ll bet she’s either a wood-dwelling creature or a farm-dwelling hippie. Turns out she’s both! Sort of. Our young heroine has been reared during the ’60s by her dying mom in the bygone ways of midwifery — a mystical trade involving curious herbs. Speaking of curious herbs, hippies set up a commune near Fern’s rustic English village, and she’s torn: attracted to her neighbors’ scandalous lifestyle, but obliged to carry on Mom’s discipline. The lethargic Enchantment gains momentum when Fern turns on, tunes in, and drops out during a mind-expanding ritual; suddenly medieval superstition and modern tomfoolery don’t seem so different.
