Rube Winters knew he was cursed by the time he turned five years old.  Despite this knowledge, there was no way to prepare for the unusual events that kept happening to him, and no way to prevent them.


His only consolation was in finding out his Uncle Billy was also cursed, when Uncle Billy shared the family secret with him.  There was just one way to lift the curse, and Rube was determined to find it.


Rube’s misadventures are hilarious and kept me chuckling throughout the story.  I especially enjoyed the antics of Moochie Dunlop, a most endearing character who plays a large role in Rube’s life.


The search to remove the curse leads Rube to The Source and a former college professor who has discovered the meaning of life and health.  The principles this professor has uncovered could easily be applied to anyone’s life.


The Blankenshipf Curse is an enjoyable and thought-provoking read.  Its unique message will give the reader something to ponder in his or her own life.
