Product description

Product Description

“Sisterly Love” is a true story of a child, Cloris De Matteis, reunited with her family at the tender age of two-and-a-half years old. At the age of six months old, she was sent to her grandparents in the heart of rural Piedmont, and because of the war, had to be precluded to live with her parents and her elder sister. The story begins when her father comes to fetch her to take her home to her native town, Stresa, on the border of Lake Maggiore in the north of Italy, traveling more than 270km by bicycle.
In her brief life with her beloved grandparents, Cloris had the privilege of experiencing true unconditional love, total affection and firm acceptance from them, but as soon as she arrived in the birth home, the atmosphere in her own family was far from what she had been used to. Her sister, three years older than her, could not stand her, believing her a threat to her “only daughter” status for more than five years. Bad deeds and cruelties to Cloris’s detriment came with daily frequency, and being the youngest of the family, nobody believed her when she “told” about her sister’s malevolence. Her parents always believed her sister’s version of events, never doubting her word. As the first born and the favourite, Cloris had to always regrettably accept these discriminations against her. Her mother was constantly angry and moody with the whole world, but in particular with her husband, as she was terribly jealous of him. His extra-marital affairs caused a great deal of stress for her, which in turn she focused her negative emotions towards little Cloris, who was continually treated with detachment and with intolerance. Her father was never at home, and during the rare occasions he was there, he did not want to be disturbed; always busy with his businesses, stamp collections and soccer which were his real passions, not giving Cloris the faintest bit of attention or affection that she desperately craved.
