Description
Whether your best friend or your worst enemy, a sister is for life, as Luisa Dillner illuminates for us in this candid portrait of sorority, with notable examples ranging from the loving Brontės to the scrapping Mitfords (who could never remember who was in and who was out of favor). "She was the sun of my life, the gilder of every pleasure, the soother of every sorrow," said Cassandra Austen upon the death of her sister Jane; "I had not a thought concealed from her, and it is as if I had lost a part of myself." Serena Williams says of her fiercely competitive sibling, "Venus has always taken care of me my whole life—she's the ultimate big sister." But Florence Nightingale's sister Parthenope doesn't mind a little iconoclasm: "I believe she has little or none of what is called charity or philanthropy.... She was a shocking nurse."
