really liked it

This book is about four siblings who have been waiting to receive their inheritance left to them by their late father. The money was to be granted to them when the youngest turns 40. But as the day approaches, the oldest gets himself in a pickle and most of the inheritance is used to give him a free pass out of disaster; leaving the others with nearly nothing. Two of the siblings had been waiting to receive their parts of the inheritance to repay debts, put children in good colleges and now the money is not enough to cover it all. The oldest makes promises to repay his siblings, but what happens next is the inception of what will change all their lives.

The writing is beautiful and flows smoothly from beginning to end. The story also has interesting cameos which add dimensions to the drama. This book portraits the ups and downs of a dysfunctional family which, if we are honest with ourselves, most of us can relate to. Good read!
