The Transit of Venus by Shirley Hazzard
Time Warner Books 1995

This beautiful tragic novel, telling the story of two Australian sisters in post-war England, encompasses a host of interlocking characters and moral predicaments. Added to the absorbing theme of obsessive love is a study of passion in all its forms as the sisters love and are loved by different men.
Shirley Hazzard was born in Sydney.
