Once, two fairies came upon the queen of fairy cavorting with a mortal. They laughed and ran off, but some time later, one of them let it slip. The enraged queen sends them packing into mortal lands, transformed into old women, and they have to try to live in the modern world. They get some help, but they also find the fairy is loose in the world, and these are the -- ehem -- Good Folk out of folklore.
It's an interesting point-of-view set-up, with each chapter in its own POV, which is probably wise because they are very different. Very strong voices. Some first-person, some third-person, some even second-person, and very well done.
And the story winds on through doves, hawks, crows, Baba Yaga, sisters, strange aunts, and other familial relationships, crude college students, buying fruit, selling herbs, and plenty of other stuff before it all resolves together, revealing what was happening behind the scenes and pushing along many events.
