It's an inspirational self-help guide which is especially recommended for the general reader seeking to understand and cherish the bond between siblings. Individual chapters offer a wealth of anecdotes, wisdom, and advice specific to childhood and adult sibling relationships; the profound power of love; and a great deal more.

An indispensable resource. Hawthorne keenly employs her clinical social work skills to clearly communicate the strategies necessary for reconnecting with your first companion and confidant, your sister or brother. Readers will find compelling personal accounts of siblings who have revitalized their bonds of love and caring. Read it, and reap.
