The “Curse of the Bailey Women” is a fictional tale about a family from a small town, Fort Mitchell, Virginia, who believe all the females born into their family bloodline are cursed because of a generational curse originating with an ancient ancestor, Cousin Beulah Ann Bailey.
From the time Anabay Bailey was knee-high to a duck, her mother, Bet Bailey, drilled into her head that she was cursed just like her and all of the other women in the family. There was no escaping “THE BIG C” and Bet wanted her daughter to accept it. Anabay doesn’t believe her mother and denounces the curse at an early age, preferring to believe the curse was a fairy tale made up by ancestors, strictly for entertainment value.
Anabay has big dreams for herself, far beyond country life in Fort Mitchell. Against all odds and without her mother’s blessings, Anabay leaves town in her early twenties with the love of her life, Claudale Jones, to start their new life together in Newark, New Jersey.
Her journey becomes complicated with lies, betrayal, unhappiness, sex, lust and even death. Along the way, she meets other Bailey women who are also dealing with their own scandalous lives. Is it a coincidence or did the curse come home to roost, as her mother predicted?
