alcoholism, and mysterious ailments More than 100 years after that deal was struck, Allie s mother Mary was diagnosed with the same incurable cancer, a disease that had also claimed her own mother s life Determined to combat what she had come to consider the Jell O curse and her looming mortality, Mary began obsessively researching her family s past, determined to understand the origins of her
