    I'll re-read it on the way home tonight.

    I vaguely remember thinking the heroine saved the Tam Lin character and then had a Susan Pevensie-style amnesia from growing up. (Or she had to escape the Susan amnesia to save the Tam Lin character?)

      she saved him by not saving him, but I was not at all sure.

        Because of the faerie queen's duel rules, Tom Lynn could only have help from things he "truly" owned while dueling the faerie king.

        He stupidly tried to use his cello as some kind of weapon, but he didn't truly own the cello, violating the rules. Polly (the hero) had to stop him from that idiocy, but since Tom didn't own Polly, she couldn't help him directly.

        So she interrupted him by telling him she was never, ever, ever going to help him ever (and mean it.)

        While he was stunned by the realization that nothing and nobody would help him (inadvertently following the faerie queen's rules),  his horse/car (which he did truly own) charged in to save the day and defeat the faerie king.

        Perfectly reasonable.
