Early one morning, in an old Romanian town known for its healing waters, eight-year-old Adela sees a witch outside her window. She rushes to tell her sister, a girl named Veronica who everyone says looks just like their dead grandmother. Together, the sisters embark on a fascination with witchcraft that follows them into adulthood. For a while, they seem to grow in opposite directions. Adela is haunted by night terrors, while Veronica is haunted by the legacy her grandmother left behind. Everyone says their grandmother was a cruel woman, and Veronica can tell she has more in common with the woman than just her looks. It is not until the sisters find themselves in a cave by the Celtic Sea that they discover the reason: there is a curse running through their family bloodline. In order to break it, they must dive into the past and learn from the mistakes of their ancestors.

Are we doomed to become like our forefathers and foremothers? Why is it that, once in a while, a child is born who bears an uncanny resemblance to a malevolent ancestor? The Curse in Their Veins explores what it means to break the intergenerational curse of narcissism. It weaves together Romanian culture, Paganism, sisterhood, Jungian psychology, and the sacred relationships between crones and granddaughters.
