Amis, portraying herself as Sabrina Matheson, was living a relatively normal, happy life when a break-up, and well-intentioned recovery trip kicked off a chain of events that would leave the life she once knew in shambles. She realizes that her step-grandmother, who influenced the spiritual aspect of ex-serial killer David Berkowitz’s life also influenced her spiritual life, but in an adverse way. To help cope with a difficult break-up, Amis’ father sends her on a vacation in Jamaica with her best friend. It is there that she almost instantly becomes “consumed into the fire” when she is introduced to a man named Gary and the other worlds of witchcraft. She quickly found herself in the middle of a domestic violence situation, and it became increasingly difficult to be a mother of her two children. The memories of the materialistic life that her father, Mr. Barnes, introduced her to when she was a teenager did not alleviate any of the drama.
