MoldedMoreUnbeknownst to Olivia Winslow, she is the product of a satanic cult rape. Throughout her childhood she is demoralized and abused by her mother and father, who - for reasons she cannot understand - believe she is the demon offspring of Satan. Molded by bitterness and resentment toward her parents, Olivia grows from a meek and fearful adolescent into a hardened young woman, consumed by her desperate need for revenge. Her cousin Peter and her boyfriend Travis are her only allies in her struggle to survive the cruelty and madness of home. When confusion over the boy of her dreams and a forbidden love lead Olivia down the path of moral corruption, she discovers a family secret that will cast a shadow over the rest of her life: The truth behind her identity. The truth rips both Peter and Travis away from her and leads to her long-awaited day of reckoning, which ends in violence and tragedy. In the wake of that madness and destruction, no life Olivia touches will come out unscathed by the dark truth of who she is.
