The nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

amy-the-nestThe Nest is about four siblings, the youngest about to turn forty, who have spent their adulthood anticipating an inheritance from their father. They each find themselves in terrible financial trouble and just when they are to inherit, one of them does something terrible. I was worried that a book about grown siblings with financial problems would be wearying, that I wouldn’t be able to keep going if a deep hole just kept getting deeper. There were times when the pressure was significant, but the New York setting was great, and the many characters’ lives and secrets were very real and totally compelling.
