Following the loss of life of her useful liberal mom and dad, Corlis McCrea strikes again into her family's grand Reconstruction mansion in North Carolina, willed to all 3 siblings. Her timid more youthful brother hasn't ever left domestic. while her bullying black-sheep older brother strikes into "his" apartment besides, it really is war.
Each inheritor desires the home. but to shop for the opposite out, siblings needs to crew opposed to one. simply as in girlhood, Corlis is torn among allying with the first rate yet frightened youngest and the iconoclastic eldest, who covets his legacy to wreck it. A completely strong Family is a gorgeous exam of inheritance, literal and mental: what we take from our mom and dad, what we discard, and what we're caught with, love it or not.
