    when it came to his sister

    1) When it came to his sister, his mother gave her all she wanted. But she was extremely unkind to him.

    Is '1' correct?

    The context:

    He had a sister. Their mother gave his sister all she wanted, but was extremely unkind to him.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: when it came to his sister

    There's no reason to separate 1 into two sentences, especially with the clunky "But" at the start of sentence 2.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
