Synopsis: Incorporating insights from psychology, mythology, and anthropology, a collection of meditations and stories about sisters--both biological and metaphorical--examines the intimacy, camaraderie, and love shared by women. 20,000 first printing. Tour.
Review: The bond between women can be as crucial and life affirming as the umbilical cord is to babies. Yet it is also a bond that has been misunderstood, feared, and deliberately severed in the shadow of patriarchal cultures. Drawing upon ancient myth, female tribes, contemporary sororities, and real life stories, Brenda Peterson offers an honest portrait of sisters--both the chosen ones and the ones we are given. We meet Isabel Allende's adopted sister, the exotic jeweler Tabra. We explore the subtext of a slumber party, and are asked to look honestly at the abortion war, which has become our sister war. Peterson's delightful wit, reflective nature, and gutsy truth telling entice and challenge readers to illuminate their own sister stories.
