This fantasy brushes the mystical while exploring how people act and react to the searing pain of rejection, stereotyping and physical abuse. It is based on a wealthy family in which the father sets in place the chain of events that fuels this story. Because he is a seventh son of a seventh son, the father uses his psychic powers to control people which is the key to his success and immense wealth. The father's perfect family is to be seven sons and one daughter as were the families of his forefathers. However, he begins to believe that his wife may be a part of an "evil" plot against him. He feels that she violates this tradition by bearing two additional children - a talented eighth son and a dazzlingly beautiful second daughter. The father’s first reaction to the daughter is to separate the eighth son from the mother and the new infant. Unknown to the father, the eighth son as an older child finds his mother and sister. After the passing of several years, the mother dies mysteriously. The eighth son molests his sister thinking misguidedly that sex is love. When the eldest daughter discovers the unholy liaison between the two, the father casts them out of his mansion. The father realizes several years later that their expulsion was not the cure against the "evil" he believes to be pursuing him. He learns belatedly that his trouble is from an unsuspecting source very close to him.
