The ties that bind
There was a time when the death of a Whitby would have made national news, but when the patriarch dies, he is alone. He has left everything to his 21-year-old son Nick, a Whitby only in name, including the houses currently occupied by Shelley and Brooke—two of his daughters from different marriages. And Nick is nowhere to be found.
Brooke, the oldest, leads the search for Nick, hoping to convince him to let her keep her Boston home and her fragile composure. Shelley hasn't told anyone she's dropped out of college, and is living in her childhood apartment while working for a blind architect, with whom she has a relationship. And when Nick, on the run from the law, finally shows up at Shelley's home, worlds dramatically collide.
"Baby of the Family is one of the most absorbing and stirring novels I’ve read in years. In this nuanced and deeply moving story, Maura Roosevelt uses her considerable gifts as a writer to explore the complexities of privilege, family, and the American Dream. It’s a beautiful book full of surprises, insight, and real heart." —Bret Anthony Johnston
