Mai | 1266 comments This one sounds too close not to mention it! I found it searching online but from the readers' descriptions is looks promising. It's not about two sisters though but two cousins:
The Gilded Hour by Sara Donati. Published in 2015.
The Story: “The Gilded Hour” is based in New York City, circa 1883. The book’s primary characters are two cousins, Liliane M. “Anna” Savard, who is Anglo, and Sophie E. Savard, who is a mulatto. Sophie is the adopted daughter of two freed blacks. Both women are doctors. They live on the Lower East Side of New York City with their Aunt Lily Quinlan-everyone simply calls her Aunt Quinlan-and her adult stepdaughter, Margaret Quinlan Cooper. Sophie is in love with an attorney named Peter Verhoeven, nicknamed “Cap”. Cap is ill with consumption. Cap is also white.
