The Beloveds
by Maureen Lindley




Overview -
An exploration of domestic derangement, as sinister as Daphne Du Maurier's classic Rebecca, that plumbs the depths of sibling rivalry with wit and menace.

Oh, to be 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.

Betty Stash is not a Beloved--but 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 behavior--aided by poisonous mushrooms, talking walls, and a phantom dog--escalates to the point of no return. The Beloveds will have you wondering if there's a length to which an envious sister won't go.
