This carefully crafted ebook: "The Birthmark (Psychological Thriller)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Excerpt: "One day, very soon after their marriage, Aylmer sat gazing at his wife with a trouble in his countenance that grew stronger until he spoke. "Georgiana," said he, "has it never occurred to you that the mark upon your cheek might be removed?" (The Birthmark) The Birthmark deals with the husband's deeply negative obsession of his wife's outer appearances and what does that entail for these two young couples. The birthmark represents various things throughout the story. Two of the main representations are imperfection and mortality. American novelist and short story writer Nathaniel Hawthorne's (1804-1864) writing centers on New England, many works featuring moral allegories with a Puritan inspiration. Hawthorne has also written a few poems which many people are not aware of. His works are considered to be part of the Romantic movement and, more specifically, Dark romanticism. His themes often centre on the inherent evil and sin of humanity, and his works often have moral messages and deep psychological complexity.

The narrator introduces Aylmer, a brilliant yet lonely scientist who is "proficient in every natural branch of philosophy" (Hawthorne 152). Aylmer abandons his scientific endeavors to pursue and marry the beautiful, sweet-natured Georgiana. One day, Aylmer gazes at his wife and asks her if she's ever considered removing the red hand-shaped birthmark on her cheek. Georgiana tells him no, as most men have found the birthmark charming. Aylmer expresses his dissatisfaction with the birthmark, reasoning that Georgiana's face is near perfection, so any blemish, mark, or physical flaw downright shocks him. Georgiana is initially angered by Aylmer's callousness, but she soon resents and obsesses over the mark just as her husband does. Her self-confidence shatters, and she becomes repulsed by her own appearance. As the birthmark continues to preoccupy Georgiana and Aylmer's minds, their marriage begins to fall apart. One night, Georgiana reminds Aylmer of one of his dreams; she recalls him exclaiming "It is in her heart now; we must have it out!" aloud while he slept (154). Aylmer then remembers that he dreamed about surgically removing his wife's birthmark with a knife. This proved to be a difficult task: as Aylmer cut deeper and deeper, the birthmark followed until it became part of Georgiana's own heart. Upset, Georgiana tells Aylmer that she wants to have the "fatal birthmark" erased regardless of the consequences, which, according to her, could include a deformity or even death (155). Aylmer enthusiastically agrees to try to eliminate the mark. He proceeds to bolster his own scientific abilities and intellect, even comparing himself to Pygmalion.

Joshua Samuelson is born with a birthmark on his right palm just below his thumb, the same as his mother. The significance of this mark becomes evident when, as a young man, he was summoned by an unknown great-aunt to take over the family businesses. She quickly procures him as the sole owner of Kerioth Industries, explaining, to his amazement, that he is a descendent of Judas Iscariot. The perils associated with this sudden development create strife and danger for him and his family. Joshuas guardian angel witnesses these events, and due to near-death encounters, an intervention becomes necessary to forewarn him of future danger. The Angelic Regime watches Joshuas difficulties escalate with direction from a dominion angel, the archangel Raphael, and the Prince of Peace, who is his protector. Lucifer, the prince of darkness, pushes to capture his soul, a great feat if accomplished.

Lights flashed around the walls as her husband's Ferrari mounted the circular driveway and screeched to a stop. Vincent was home early. He stumbled up the steps to the veranda, tripped, fell, and then raising himself, he cursed. After several stabs at the keyhole, he succeeded in opening the door and faced the barrel of a .45 caliber pistol. Katherine pulled the trigger.

That very singular man, old Dr. Heidegger, once invit-ed four venerable friends to meet him in his study. There were three white-bearded gentlemen, Mr. Medbourne, Colonel Killigrew, and Mr. Gascoigne, and a withered gentlewoman, whose name was the Widow Wycherly. They were all melancholy old creatures, who had been unfortunate in life, and whose greatest misfortune it was that they were not long ago in their graves. Mr. Medbourne, in the vigor of his age, had been a prosper-ous merchant, but had lost his all by a frantic speculation, and was now little better than a mendicant. Colonel Killi-grew had wasted his best years, and his health and sub-stance, in the pursuit of sinful pleasures, which had given birth to a brood of pains, such as the gout, and divers other torments of soul and body.
