No Friend Like a Sister: Exploring the Relationship Between Sisters
This feminist exploration of sister relationships seeks to discover what sets sisterhood apart from friendships and from relationships with other family members. Investigating the role of sisters as one of support and obligation in traditional family models, this book reveals the complexities of sisterhood that have long been simplified by traditional commentators. Discussions and interviews offer a rich and often moving resource of information, experience, and opinion, and help to provide valuable insights into the unique relationship between sisters.
