Summary
Christa Parravani and her identical twin, Cara, shared a bond that went beyond siblinghood, beyond sisterhood, beyond friendship. Raised up from poverty by a determined single mother, the gifted and beautiful twins sheltered each other from family violence and loss by inventing a haven of playfulness and creativity between themselves. They went on to earn scholarships at a prestigious college, to careers as artists (Christa, the photographer and Cara was the writer), and to exuberant young marriages. But when Cara fell victim to a rape, she veered into depression, drugs, and a shocking early death. Studies have shown that when an identical twin dies, regardless of the cause, the surviving twin's life is at risk. First, Christa fought to stop her sister's downward spiral; then, she was struggling to keep herself alive. The act of creating this heart-wrenching text helped to transform her into a twin able to live on her own.--From publisher description
