Item description for The Vanson Curse by David Hough...

THERE'S A CURSE ON THE VANSONS - ALL LOVE IS DOOMED! Chains, crippling work and torture make life a living hell for slaves on the Vanson's Alabama cotton plantation. When his wife is brutally raped by the master, an enslaved shaman strikes back in the one way he knows . by calling on centuries of African tribal sorcery to curse the Vanson men to disaster in love and the family to extinction. Kit Vanson - sickened by his father's and then by his brother's evil abuse of their helpless field hands - flees back home to his roots on his late grandfather's sleepy Cornish farm to find peace of mind. But he carries with him a burden of crushing guilt. And when he tries to atone for the family sins by coming to the rescue in a merciless vendetta against beautiful neighbour, Wenna Lanyon, he discovers that the Vanson Curse has followed him across the ocean. David Hough recreates the cruelties and injustices, the dark superstitions and stark realities of the first half of the 19th Century on both sides of the Atlantic. The Vanson Curse is a vividly told story of violence and tenderness, love and hate.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Vanson Curse?

Vanson Curse  Nov 26, 2007
In spite of warnings that he'll be sorry, Kit Vanson has decided to give up the sea and his interest in his family's plantation for the old family farm in Cornwall. It is his hope to find a peace denied him in a new life.

In traveling to his family farm he runs into a man named Ralph Killiow who is abusing a woman. The confrontation has a far-reaching outcome into Kit's future and the woman does not seem to appreciate the rescue. He learns his new enemy is the son of the local squire, the man of power in the area.

Kit discovers life in Cornwall is both different and much the same as that he left behind. Must he stand by while farmers are forced off their land, a minister is hunted for encouraging the workers to unionize for better working conditions, and women are left without protection of the law? Would it be better for him to return to his family's plantation and forget Cornwall? Or should he confront the man behind the local troubles? The tension that flows through this story, while it seems understated, will keep you reading to find out what happens next. Talented author David Hough kept me reading in this well-crafted tale of romance, intrigue and danger.

Recommended as an intriguing, well-told story that leaves the reader with a sense of having stepped into another time and walked in the shoes of people whose lives too often depended on the whims of a man with too much power and who lacked the sense of its proper use. Enjoy. I did.
