Books about sisters

Have you read Kristin Hannah’s poignant and gripping novel The Nightingale set in Paris in 1939?  The sisters in this excellent novel have a troubled relationship, but that’s where their story parts way with Janelle and Ali, the sisters in my book.  If you have read The Nightingale, will you let me know what you think? Have you read other books about sisters you would recommend?
