Doug MacBrayne is like any other boy born to great wealth, except he has the uncanny ability to remember pieces of past lives. But before he can decipher the puzzle of these memories, he must first overcome a plot by an unscrupulous psychiatrist who seeks to gain control of the family's fortune. Doug discovers he has a Dickensonian cast of allies including his indomitable Scottish nanny, a globe-trotting grandfather, a ghost who inhabits the family chapel, an English teacher who just might be the most recent incarnation of John Milton, a pair of Gypsies, and a militant corps of young women known only as "The Moles". "Birthmark" is a rip-roaring, New Age tale of epic proportions. Move over Celestine Prophecy, and pass the reincarnation!
