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 Pigmore (Bella), born with a birthmark so pronounced that she faces ridicule for most of her young life, you feel bad, ... very bad. Growing up feeling like a freak, Bella clings to the only support she has, her mother. But when her mother dies under mysterious circumstances and she is left alone with her abusive father, Bella suffers dearly at the hands of the man who should protect her.
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 ramification. 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? Will Bella be able to rise above her low self esteem to realize that she is beautiful and wonderfully made in the image of God?
