Virgin Karleen

by Karin Duncan-Smyth

Virgin Karleen Synopsis

Karleen's summer job at the fair as the sexy fortuneteller 'Virgin Karleen' takes an encouraging turn when she gets the opportunity to flaunt her wiles for Joe Peters. Joe is a returning WW II pilot with a bright future as an Air Corps officer. Karleen imagines romance, travel, and adventure! Life in a trailer home, parked in the back pasture of Joe's parents' farm, does not fulfill Karleen's dreams. Are infidelity, murder and the bitter realities of survival in post-WW II rural New York State to be Karleen's fate? For an entire generation it would seem so, as brother-in-law Tom's romantic intentions are lost on the long-grieving Karleen. Her only concern is for her daughter. But Tom won't give up without a fight--and one final curse from the mysterious Karleen.
