I think it was a gift because it helped her find the missing portrait.

I think it was a gift in that it lead to her meeting Alex and finding the painting, but it was also a curse in that she had no control over when or where she would have visions.

Her connection to her past lives was a curse. It was unhealthy and dangerous. She wasn't able to sleep and was always passing out at the worse times.

Ultimately I think Angela's connection to the past and her past selves is a gift. It enables her to have visions and abilities that no one else has. It also gave her the chance to find true love and not only that but a love that spanned decades and countries. Her gift has drawbacks of course but I see more of the positive than the negative.
Give me the courage to get through this week...or at least a big bar of chocolate :D

I think it depends on how you look at it. Some may think that a simple, uneventful life is a curse because they do not life boredom. They may instead view everything that happened to Angela as an adventure. Others may prefer a quiet, uneventful life. It's more about perspective than anything else.
I agree - I recently finished this book and I can see both sides. It can be seen as a curse or a gift all depending on the perspective of the reader. I really enjoyed the book
