Ana was brought into the world as the child who was anticipated to keep her parents' shaky marriage intact and, after two previous tries, was certain to be a boy named Benjamin. But from the time the doctor announced, "It's a girl," to well into adulthood, Ana would be not only a source of contention for her resentful mother, but completely loathed and unwanted. Out of her older two sisters and her, and a later half-sister, as her mother just couldn't get this boy-thing down, she was the least favorite. It was bad enough for a parent to have and to clearly show a favorite child, but having a clear least-favorite was much worse. As a result, Ana was the one child of the four sisters who would be neglected and abused emotionally, psychologically, physically, and even sexually. Her mentally ill older sister, who was also abusive to her, would even taunt her with the moniker, "Devil's Child," and would even throw steak-knives at her repeatedly. Soon Ana, too, became to believe she was the "Devil's Child." But when Ana finally decides she has had enough abuse, her life takes a dramatic turn. And her mother's dark past would soon come to light.
