The sores are scarlet and purple and scaly.
They spread from my forehead to my chin. Even the polite ones like the eighty year old missionary who comes to bring us pamphlets once a month always does a double-take, as if I look even worse than he remembers.A Change of Heart is her third novel and is my favorite of the three.
