Introduction of book reads:
Sisterhood is a special kind of place
Sisters have a special relationship quite unlike any other. Whether you are close or distant to your sister, there is something that unites you. It is the knowing that you both share a common place where you grew up in. It’s a special kind of community filled with childhood memories and family secrets that only sisters really share. Sisterhood is a unique kind of neighbourhood.
Within this place sisters afford themselves a special kind of freedom, a freedom to share their inner thoughts, and be themselves to express their lightness and dark shadows. There is a kind of beauty in this place where sisters can be real. It’s where expressing one’s fears is acceptable, well, tolerated anyway. In the sisterhood, the rules are not the same as in most societies – sisters here feel safe to be themselves because deep down even if their sister drives her to want to strangle her, they both know that a special kind of love exists.
In the outside world time waits for noone. Yet in the sisterhood, time can stand still. Husbands may come and go, friends grow up and move on, children too grow up and spread their wings. But sisters share a special place that time cannot change. Having a relationship that no matter what life may bring will always be there is heartwarming.
In childhood, sisters teach each other great lessons, and the biggest lesson is sharing. Some sisters are very competitive for their parents affection and attention and this may follow on into adult life. Sisterhood is a hothouse for growth. It is where we sisters learn great lessons in life in the safety of this inside world. Sisters learn about sharing, about getting along with others, cooperation, fairness, patience, tolerance and love. If ever there was a place to gain wisdom it is in sisterhood.
It often takes some sisters to reach old age before they can fully appreciate each other. It is then that memories take on a new life. It is then that sisters reminisce of good and bad times, of childhood indiscretions, fights, and joyful times shared. There is a special place that outsiders can’t fathom or fully understand. It’s where two old ladies can sit on a porch or on the phone for hours, and laugh and smile and giggle and remember all the characters that inhabited their special neighbourhood. It’s a place where they know their conversation won’t bore the pants of each other. In the sisterhood, some things never die.
To the sisterhood.

DID YOU KNOW?
When you purchase this book, you plant 2 trees in Madagascar. That’s right, for every book you purchase you are helping to make a dramatic impact in the lives of the beautiful wildlife and the people that call this magical island home. Madagascar is the fourth largest island on Earth and over 80% of it’s wildlife are found nowhere else, including all of the world’s lemurs, most of which are critically endangered. Approximately 95% of Madagascar’s forests have been destroyed and many of the people that live there are very poor. Planting trees restores the environment and helps protect the wildlife, but it also gives the people an income and allows them to put food on their plates and send their children to school.
