Betty Stash is not a Beloved - one of those lucky people for whom nothing ever goes wrong. Everything falls into their laps without effort: happiness, beauty, good fortune, allure. Her little sister, the delightful Gloria, is. She's the one with the golden curls and sunny disposition and captivating smile, the one whose best friend used to be Betty's, the one whose husband should have been Betty's. And then, to everyone's surprise, Gloria inherits the family manse - a vast, gorgeous pile of ancient stone, imposing timbers, and lush gardens - that was never meant to be hers. Losing what Betty considers her rightful inheritance is the final indignity. As she single-mindedly pursues her plan to see the estate returned to her in all its glory, her determined and increasingly unhinged behaviour - aided by poisonous mushrooms, talking walls, and a strange dog - escalates to the point of no return. An exploration of domestic derangement, as sinister as Daphne Du Maurier's classic Rebecca, The Beloveds will have you wondering if there is any length to which an envious sister won't go.

“Fantastic!”

The Beloveds is a wonderful portrait of madness, bitterness, and sibling rivalry. Betty Stash is a perfect main character-the story is told entirely through her own twisted viewpoint, and as I read I find myself... More
