Genre: family drama
In one sentence: The wealthy, New York City-based Oppenheimer family is made up of three triplets - until latecomer Phoebe comes along.

This book has a little bit of everything - family drama, politics, religion, and discussion of race and class/privilege. If you enjoy books with detailed character studies, you might enjoy this one. I liked getting to know the Oppenheimer family, but the book moved more slowly than I would have preferred. The family drama part of the plot was the most successful in my opinion - the triplets dislike each other immensely, leading to some pretty entertaining conflict. The book felt overly long, like Apples Never Fall, and I wish the author hadn't tried to fit so many tropes and issues into one novel.

Thank you to Celadon Books for providing a NetGalley ARC in exchange for an honest review.
