The Heirs by Susan Rieger is tailor made for those readers who enjoyed The Nest. It’s a very well written saga about a New York family whose patriarch passes away (on the first page, not a spoiler!) leaving his wife and five accomplished adult sons to grieve. As it turns out there are surprises to be dealt with as well since several lives were being lived in parallel. This is an astute, well observed tale of how people cope with the unexpected. Highly recommended.
