I think the point the book is trying to make is that it's not so much the "curse" that plagues the protagonist's life as much as her own decisions that end up alienating people who love her and contrarily, her being too kind to people who mean her ill. While a laudable lesson no doubt, it makes for a somewhat frustrating read. But still, not a bad heroine - gutsy, competent and compassionate. I think I liked her sister Rose better, though.
