This is a first novel which has had extensive advertising. It's well worth the attention. The four Plumb children have been the beneficiaries of father Leonard's trust, which will be executed when the youngest child turns 40. The father had devised this plan for inheritance hoping that it would reduce any ill will or competition among them, but in fact all four have been counting on the money and have compromised their own standards believing that things will work out when the money comes.
An unexpected accident involving oldest brother Leo changes everything, in ways the others do not immediately realize.
It's a parable of life today, when real estate bubbles can burst, cars may turn over, and babies may happen.
This is a page-turner which occupies the reader fully until the end. Nicely done.
