When her fiancé mysteriously abandons her the night before their wedding, Manda Love learns it may be the result of a curse that came about before she was even born. It all began when Manda’s mother was a young woman living in the West Indies, and she came under the wrath of a powerful Obeah woman. The woman put a curse on her, declaring that she would have two daughters - the one in her belly would chase riches and die before she reaches 35; while the second daughter will live a miserable life, then die alone and be eaten by rats. Manda’s parents moved away to England, where she and her sister, Sierra, were born. Now Manda is 33 and Sierra’s 35th birthday is fast approaching, and their lives seem to be playing out according to the curse. Manda leaves London and goes to New York City where Sierra lives, on a mission to save them both from the curse that is supposed to end her sister’s life before her birthday. She soon finds herself caught between battling her own demons and the ever-increasing threats to her sister’s life. But will she be able to stop the dark destiny in time that threatens to destroy them both? This book is about breaking the limitations set on us by family legacies, and taking responsibility for our own destiny. It asks the question about whether curses have power outside of us, or do they only have the power we give them?
