Based on the most comprehensive study of its kind, My Sister, My Self by Vikki Stark is the first book to offer in-depth, firsthand insights into the life-altering impact of sisters’ relationships. Over 400 women, teens and girls contributed, and these often humorous, sometimes poignant, vignettes from their stories are throughout the book. Also, threaded through the book is the author’s story of the complicated relationship with her own sister.
My Sister, My Self is a revealing look at the childhood roles and rivalries that shape the way women think, feel and love as adults. Also, it offers practical advice on how to heal old wounds, deal with difficult sisters, improve family dynamic, and strengthen the bonds that last a lifetime.
