What makes some sisters best friends throughout their lives? What makes others archenemies who can't bear the sight of one another? The lifelong bond between sisters is a powerful one. Sisters have a shared childhood to draw on, but as they grow up and change, so do their volatile relationships.
In this fascinating book, Marcia Millman talks to one hundred women to find out what brings sisters closer together and what pushes them apart. Career, romance, children, divorce, money, care of ageing parents: Millman reveals these as some of the hot issues for sisters. And through listening to the intimate, funny and surprising true-life stories, Millman shows us how to develop closer and more loving relationships with our own sisters.
