"The Heirs" by Susan Rieger
What a story that tell of the well to do family [the heirs of Rupert Falkes] and oh my what is found out after this patriarch passes. Â I thought this novel was well written with such a incredible character development that will certainly keep your attention to the end. I liked how this author tell of the wife Eleanor who was Rupert's wife and their five sons [ Will, Sam, Tom, Jack and Harry] who were Princeton educated and so successful and all the grands are girls. What happens when a letter arrives with a women saying that she had two sons by Rupert and wanted them to share in the inheritance? Â As Rupert's past is questioned and his secrets surface that simply smears his families reputation what will happen? Â How will the family members treat this information? Â In the end Â as the mystery comes out was there any truth to any of this?
The author gives the reader quite a good read of family and the lives it touches as it goes through 'marriage, parenthood, fidelity, infidelity, Eleanor's past, even giving the reader some incredible dry wit' along with some surprises. Â In the end the reader gets a good Â page turner read Â of a wonderful saga that is even juicy, entertaining, somewhat humorous times.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review. So exciting!
