            For most of us, finding a perfect partner is a trial and error process filled with highs and lows, with hopes and heartache. And too often, the partner we find does not turn out to be our “soul mate.” With approximately half of all marriages ending in divorce, relationship problems disrupt most people’s lives. The Curio Shop weaves a tale of two women’s discoveries about the personal qualities that contribute to strong and healthy relationships and those qualities that destroy intimacy. Our two leading characters, Ceci and Sharon, have mystical experiences such as trances, dreams, déjà vu, reveries, story telling, past-life regressions, and empathic visions. In each of these, they have visions of people in different time periods and cultures. Each vision teaches them about the personal qualities that ensure or destroy true intimacy. Based on what is being revealed to them, they develop a practical guide to relationships (which is embedded within the stories of their lives) that allows readers to recognize strengths and limitations in their own love relationships.
