            Richard runs his alternative healing centre from an old houseboat in a scrapyard on Trusting Lane. The Little Mother Earth Ship provides spiritual sustenance at regular meetings of The Circle of IWEA. While Richard plies his new age wisdom, disciples Finn and August keep the whol...e enterprise afloat. But warning letters from the council are piling up down the side of the fridge and the arrival of a new mystic Celestiaa Davinaa is about to rock their world. How many alternative healers can one small boat hold before the enterprise capsizes? Simone Lazaroo said, 'This novel made me laugh, cry and wonder . . . Her characters' problems are both regional and global, their insights hard-won, yet often humorous.'

            Kennedy Bennett comes from a long line of curse weavers. For centuries, her family has plied their trade in Unstable, Massachusetts, an unconventional small town that's welcomed paranormal practitioners since the dawn of spiritualism. Kennedy has recently struck out on her own, o...pening an antiques shop in Boston, where her speciality is uncursing and reselling hexed objects. Then Aiden Connolly walks into her life with an offer she really should refuse. The scion of a wealthy family of luck workers, Aiden has a scheme to get his hands on the most famous cursed object of all: the mythical Necklace of Harmonia. He's not the only one after the necklace, though. And he's not the only one looking for a curse weaver to fix it. Kennedy's sisters are kidnapped, and she finds herself plunged into the underbelly of the magical world where even Aiden is in over his head.
