Product Details

Praise

“Deeply moving . . . The author’s vulnerability turns what could have been a clinical look at family dysfunction into a sensitive, compassionate narrative. Even cynics will find hope in this story of redemption.” 
Publishers Weekly

“A primer in mending familial fences blended with an affecting memoir.”
Kirkus Reviews

“A terrific, compassionate, much-needed book about broken family relationships and the path to healing.”
Dr. Wendy Mogel, New York Times bestselling author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee

“Fern Schumer Chapman is a superb writer. In this stunning family memoir, she fearlessly probes the forty-year estrangement from her brother and chronicles their uneasy road to reconciliation. Along the way, she deftly weaves in pertinent social science research, capturing the voices and insights of hundreds of people suffering from sibling alienation. Brothers, Sisters, Strangers deserves to be read and discussed for years to come.”
James B. Lieber, Pulitzer Prize-nominated author of Friendly Takeover

“No better book presents the subject of sibling estrangement in such a far-reaching, personal, and practical way. A must-read!”
—Ali-John Chaudhary, psychotherapist
