Sisters who talk together…

- by AnnRoth

My women’s fiction novel, My Sisters, is out this month, so I’m focused on sisters. There are so many aspects to the relationship between sisters.  I have been and will be blogging about some of them. You’ll find a list of blog dates and links below.

Studies show that sisters who talk often enjoy a close relationship. Actually, I haven’t seen a single  study on the subject. ;-)  But I’ll bet if someone did do that study, I’d be proved right. Good communication is crucial to straightening out misconceptions and soothing hurt feelings.

That certainly holds true with Margaret, Rose and Quincy, the three heroines in My Sisters. They don’t communicate well with each other and it shows. None has any thoughts of changing that, at least at the beginning of the story. Later… That’s for you to find out when you read the book.

What about you? When was the last time you and your sister(s) sat down for a good heart-to-heart? What are your favorite things to do together? Or, if you don’t get along, what activity with your sister(s) do you dread most?

My sister and I aren’t close, but we have had some good talks. After we do, I always feel good. We both enjoy cooking and eating good food and we both like to laugh. ???

I can’t wait to find out, and thanks for stopping by,

  1. I have one sister still living. We talk on the phone several times a week, as we live a distance apart.
    When we are able to get together we love to go shopping and have lunch.

  2. That’s great, Estella! I’ll be seeing my sister over Thanksgiving. I hope we’ll have a chance to do something fun together.

  3. I’m an only child, but I have close friends with whom to share joys and sorrows. Sometimes “choosing” our relatives works best.

  4. Phoebe, I so agree! The definition of family has changed drastically over the decades. Your family is whoever you choose it to be. But if you happen to have siblings, you’re stuck with them whether you’d choose them or not. Sigh.
