Summary
Born in the late 1700s, Admonition's mother has already made her believe her name carries a curse. When her home - along with most of her family - is swallowed by a sink hole, she is taken in by neighbors who provide her with a loving home. She is only 13 when things start to change. By the time she reaches 15, the curse is confirmed, when she is forced to leave by the sexual advances of the man who had initially taken her - a confirmation that is repeated many times in her life. Finding a home with Jabez, the landlord of The Boar's Head, she becomes embroiled in salt smuggling that leads ultimately to transportation and a new life in Australia where she finally finds true love and freedom. As Admonition says at the end of her story, 'Now, I wish there was a way I could tell her what's taken me a lifetime, not to mention a journey to the other side of the world, to learn: we can be unlucky, unfortunate, even oppressed by our circumstances or by those around us, but we are never affected by curses and certainly not by our name - unless of course we choose to believe it.'
