This is also a book about possibilities. It is about how our ties with sisters and brothers continue to grow and change shape throughout our lifetimes, and about the particular turning points in our adult lives that offer chances to deepen closeness, deactivate conflicts, or balance lopsided bonds. Sandmaier closes with a powerful message of hope and a wealth of helpful strategies for those who would like to revitalize or repair their own sibling connections.
