This book tells of two sisters, one of whom has psychological problems that are similar to their mother's.
This is described as the family "curse." The sisters have different memories of a boating accident when their mother is killed and they are saved. As the cursed sister tries to ensure that her son not live as cursed as she is, her sister works to free that son from a hysterical silence caused by a boating accident quite similar to his mother's.
The story is told through the voices of 5 of the main characters. This makes it very interesting.
One of the lessons this book might have, is that we can very easily misunderstand our family relationships. It is only through clear communication from all parties that we can learn the truth.
