The lives of the Barretts, a normal suburban New England family, are torn apart when 14-year-old Marjorie begins to display signs of acute schizophrenia. To her parents' despair, the doctors are unable to stop Marjorie's descent into madness. As their stable home devolves into a house of horrors, they reluctantly turn to a local Catholic priest for help. Father Wanderly suggests an exorcism; he believes the vulnerable teenager is the victim of demonic possession.

"Noramary came out of the parlor into the hall. Stunned by what she had just heard, she felt slightly light-headed and leaned against the closed door for a moment to steady herself. The shock of Winnie's elopement during the night had been followed by a second - the staggering request of her foster parents that she step into her errant cousin's place as the bride of Duncan Montrose!"

I loved it. There were some frustrating parts but it was beautifully written. The reader made Nora mary sound very pitiful though. Also Duncans accent was a bit weird. Not a really good Scottish accent but A for Effort. All in All I was pleased as this was one of my favorite books from my youth.
