Margaret Sullivan, a troubled college student in her early twenties,

Orphaned at childbirth and raised by her maternal grandparents, Margaret
feels the sting of loss when her grandmother dies. With no maternal figure in

whose absence created an emotional abyss, as well as an explanation of her
grandfather’s immunity to Satan’s will which is epic. And she ultimately
