About the Book

It started with a simple moment, much the way life experiences occur. The author and a lifelong friend were in a jewelry store following the death of the author’s husband. An acquaintance said to the two women, “Are you sisters?” The author responded, “We are lifelong friends because of our husbands, who were brothers from different mothers since their early university days in the fraternity house.” The acquaintance immediately responded, “That makes you sisters from different misters!” In that moment, the image of this story was created. The two women left the jewelry store chatting about their lifelong relationship, including the laughter and the tears and the idea that they were really sisters from different misters. Leaving the store, the author commented, “Perhaps this lifelong relationship is worth writing about.” Another woman, overhearing their conversation, said, “I’d like to read that book.” And the idea of putting this down in print was born. Telling the story has enriched the life of the author and hopefully will enrich the life of its readers.
