It’s no secret that love has plagued the Owens family for centuries. But when did the curse begin, and why? It all began with Maria Owens, who arrived in America in 1680, with a baby in tow…

This was true magic, the making and unmaking of the world with paper and ink.

15. oldal


These are the lessons to be learned. Drink chamomile tea to calm the spirit. Feed a cold and starve a fever. Read as many books as you can. Always choose courage. Never watch another woman burn. Know that love is the only answer.


Do as you will, but harm no one.
What you give will be returned to you threefold.
Fall in love whenever you can.


The water is wide, I cannot get o’er it
And neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that will carry two
And both shall row, my Love and I.


Never deny who you are, Hannah Owens had told her, no matter the price.
