This sad yet uplifting story of sisterly love is worth the tears that readers will shed.

There is no other loss in adult life that is often the most neglected than the death of an adult sibling. Adults often feel abandoned when they lose a sibling. The sympathy goes to their parents or the deceased’s spouse and children. Brothers and sisters, however, are supposed to get over it quickly.
Nancy Seriani didn’t because if she did, she wouldn’t have written a memoir titled “For the Love of Sister… A Sibling’s Story” (ReadersMagnet, 2017). The book narrates the author’s account of caring for her younger sister, Nena, as she slowly succumbs to cancer. The story goes beyond the heartbreak and emotional pain as it inspires hope and love and invites readers to talk about cancer in the family.
Adult siblings play an important role in the family dynamics. “For the Love of Sister” reveals how cancer – and a sibling’s impending death – could affect family ties. The author talks about their family’s battle against cancer, sharing how they provided Nena with much-needed love and support.
While the family stood behind Nena, they also had to deal with past hurts and misunderstandings. The author brought her family together to heal old wounds and strengthen family ties at a most crucial time.
Underneath this true story of sisterly love is a story of faith. Nena, like many people, tried to blame God for her illness but the author consoled and strengthened her by saying: “I don’t think it’s God we should be mad at, baby girl. I think it’s the cancer we should be mad at. The anger at the cancer will make you fight.”
The author’s experience casts light on adults who often feel abandoned by society in the death of an adult sibling. In a deeper aspect, the book highlights adult sibling bereavement – a loss that most people are repeatedly exposed to. Through her book, the author proves she is not a forgotten mourner and her sister’s pain is her own.
