A provocative novel of jealousy and betrayal between two rival sisters Ruth calls herself a malevolent creature, ruled since childhood by hatred and envy for her adopted sister, Elizabeth. She grew up in Elizabeth's shadow, always falling short of her goodness and generosity, constantly resenting her very presence in the family. As they grow old, Ruth sets out to destroy her without guilt or hesitation. Ruth will strike Elizabeth where she's most vulnerable-she will steal her husband and send her collapsing into ruin. Written in Hart's concise, striking prose, Sin is a powerful and compulsively readable exploration of hate-and the destruction and tragedy it begets. "The reader looks on with mingled shock and fascination . . . a tour de force." -The New York Times "Shocking . . . unrelenting in its intensity . . . you won't be able to put it down." -Cosmopolitan "A remarkable talent." -Washington Post Book World Josephine Hart's international bestselling novels include Damage, Sin, Oblivion, and The Truth About Love. Born and raised in Ireland, she has also produced several successful plays in London's West End. Prior to becoming a writer, Hart worked in publishing and established the Gallery Poets and West End Poetry Hour. She lives in London.
