"What do you do if people say you are born with the "mark of the devil," especially in Jamaica where many believe in the spirits of good and evil? If you are Isabella "Bella" Pigmore, born with a birthmark so pronounced that she faces ridicule for most of her young life, you feel bad--very bad. Leaving her hometown of Clarendon, Jamaica, behind, Bella travels to a new town, hoping to become invisible in a parish where she isn't known by anyone. But once again, the people she should be able to trust betray her in the worst possible way. Bella becomes a pawn in a twisted, treacherous plot with murderous ramifications. As her life spirals out of control, will she find the power and resilience to fight for the only thing that now matters in her life?"-- publisher's website.
