Curses and Other Buried Things

We rated this book:


For seven generations, the women in Susana Prather’s family have been dealing with Curses and Other Buried Things. It begins on their eighteenth birthday and ends with their death not long after, passing to the next first-born daughter. Susana just celebrated her eighteenth, so she knows she doesn’t have long. She wants to be the one to break the curse, but after so long, she doesn’t know how to keep the swamp from claiming her. It will take everything she has, hope, and love in order to truly find freedom.

I have no idea how to classify this book. It doesn’t really fit into any genre, but still, it is a compelling read. Curses, lies, and secrets hold a lot of influence in this book and over people in real life. This story shows the power of both forgiveness and hatred. The lesson of how we really curse ourselves when we won’t forgive is prevalent throughout this story. “Free people free other people” was a favorite quote of mine from this book. If you are looking for a tale with more depth, this is the book for you.
