Fionnuala and her brothers lead a magical, carefree life in the emerald Tuatha kingdom of Lir in ancient Ireland. But when their mother dies in childbirth their world is turned upside down.
Left heartbroken, King Lir locks himself up in his bedchamber, leaving the children to fend for themselves. Fionnuala, old enough to leave and marry, takes it upon herself to care for her younger brothers. But then little Conn falls ill.
When Aoife with her dark crimson hair, the bluest eyes, and uplifting spirit arrives to heal him, they all fall for her; Fionnuala the most. Yet, somehow it is her father Aoife chooses to marry…
Feeling betrayed and hurt the princess has great trouble accepting this, but she doesn’t know the truth of the real reason why Aoife agreed on marrying the king. Will the two women find a way to be together, or is a jealous king going to stop them?
Suspenseful, romantic and seeped in Irish myth and magic, ‘The Cursed’ captures a dramatic adult lesbian-fairytale twist on ‘Lir’s Children’ and the power of love, hope and patience.
