How strength, personality and determination can overcome adversity

His Sins is a story about families and relationships; about what the results can be of one person's actions on another

His Sins (published by Trafford Publishing) shares the dynamics of a family that moves from overseas to Canada in three generational segments. Author Sylvia Behnish breaks down the changing ways families find love in her new novel.

“His Sins is a story about families and relationships; about what the results can be of one person’s actions on another,” said Behnish. “It is also a story about the power of the human personality and how adversity can be overcome with strength and determination. Although it tells of bitterness and resentment, it speaks of love.”

The novel begins in the early 1900s but follows Alexander and Janet’s family though the generations starting with their own. The second part is about their daughter, Elsa, and the struggles she goes through as an unwanted child, eventually marrying a man much like her father. The third and final part is about Sarah Ann, the daughter of Elsa, who resolves to be strong in life.

“Readers will think of similar things that have happened in their own lives or in the lives of those they know,” Behnish said. “Most of us do not live in wholly functional families and I think there would be many, if not a lot of readers saying, ‘I know exactly how she feels’ or ‘my father was just like that’ when they read about Alexander or Peter.”
