Synopsis:

Charli is convinced that the women in her family are the victims of a curse—they go through husbands at an alarming rate. At a very young age, she begins a journal. The adult conversations are often bewildering. How can she avoid the curse? Aunt Nellie must have the answers.

The journal reappears at critical moments in Charli’s life, and beautiful Aunt Nellie is linked to each rediscovery. Each time Charli reads the journal, she learns new secrets, and gains new insights. Will she find the answer, or will she, too, fall victim?
