Contents / Notes

Summary, etc.: Following The Divorce Papers, Rieger presents another engrossing family drama in this sweeping story of an upper-crust Manhattan couple, Rupert and Eleanor, and their five sons. All five shining stars-a doctor, a law professor, a trumpet prodigy, a Hollywood agent, and a prosecutor-went to Princeton and have their own adult relationships and issues. But Rupert's death leaves them grief struck, which worsens when another woman claiming that Rupert had fathered her two sons wants part of his estate. Family members react in different ways to the news; alternating chapters present their individual points of view and unfold tangential story lines. Eleanor details the fascinating tale of her first love, Jim, whom her family forbade her to marry because he was Jewish. And the chapters by Jim and the "other woman" enrich the reader with the details of their lives-balancing the other family members' perspectives. Verdict Brilliantly constructed and flawlessly written, -Rieger's novel brings all these moving parts together. The result is an emotional and satisfying story of how a complicated family and their outliers handle life's most pivotal moments.
