This is a story about twin sisters Lia and Alice Milthorpe. It is unusual story in which the twins find themselves entangled in a mystery that involves a tattoo-like mark, their parents’ deaths, a boy, a book, and a lifetime of secrets.
A strange prophecy has turned generations of sisters against each other. Lia and Alis must try to destroy it, but they can’t trust each other any more. They have become enemies.
Debut novelist Zink sets her story in an old house in upstate New York in the early 1800s. She makes the atmosphere as carefully as she plots the story and shapes her characters.
“Prophecy of the Sisters" is the first of three books.
