Not no mark.” Lochiel Ogle was born with a red-wine birthmark—and it put her life in jeopardy from the moment she entered the world. Mountain folks called it “the mark of the devil,” and for all the evil that has plagued her nineteen-year existence, Lochiel is ready to believe that is true. And the devil surely took control of the mind of the boy who stole her as an infant, bringing her home for his mother to raise. Abused and abandoned by the only people she knows as family, Lochiel is rescued by a peddler and given the first glimpse of love she has ever known. The truth of her past is gradually revealed as is the fact that she is still hunted by a brother driven to see her dead. Unsure if there’s anyone she can truly trust, Lochiel is faced with a series of choices: Will she continue to run for escape or will she face her past and accept the heartbreaking secrets it reveals? Which will truly free her? Set in the wild and beautiful Appalachian Mountains of nine- teenth-century East Tennessee, Liar’s Winter is an unflinching yet inspirational exploration of prejudice and choice. Cindy K. Sproles is the author of devotions published in news- papers across the country and a teacher at Christian writers conferences. She spent her formative years showing off her beloved Appalachian Mountains to others, and she and her fam- ily still live in the mountains of East Tennessee.
