The Cove, by Ron Rash.

Because the cove is isolated and barely sees daylight, and because Laurel who lives there has a large strawberry birthmark, she and her brother are shunned. Townspeople believe she is a witch and that the cove is cursed.  When Hank returns from the war having lost a hand, they hope– because of what he gave up– their luck will turn.
