characters People of Means 107 St wife knows her ex better than anyone She worked hard for decades to ensure their financial security and is determined to see her children get their due Single for nearly a decade she might finally be ready for some romantic companionship But where does a seventy two year old Chinese woman in California go to find an appropriate boyfriendAs Stanley’s death approaches the Huangs are faced with unexpected challenges that upend them and eventually lead them to discover what they most value A compelling tale of cultural expectations career ambitions and our relationships with the people who know us best Family Trust skewers the ambition and desires that drive Silicon Valley and draws a sharply loving portrait of modern American family life?. When Stanley Huang develops life threatening pancreatic cancer the successful twice married father of two must put his affairs in order Can Stanley pass on his legacy while his family Linda ex wife of 34 years Fred and Kate his adult children and second wife Mary of 9 years suabble on who gets the fair share of the inheritance I really enjoyed Family Trust because of its strong character development and its ability to make me think of my own family dynamics Although some of the passages about the corporate world dragged for me I would definitely recommend this book as a must read for lovers of fiction Although I gave this book a five star rating I would have enjoyed the story if there was fewer content on the business world However I did recognize the elaborate set up the author created in order to make the ending fantastic which is why it is five stars In terms of potentially offensive content Family Trust is an adult novel with adult themes There are a few swear words sprinkled here or there and the occasional mention of sexual content However these things are few and only mentioned when necessary for content I felt the story was especially strong in the area of character development The author focused on only a handful of main characters Each main character was given their own chapters in order to advance the narrative in their point of view This paid off especially well at the end because I thoroughly understood where each character was coming from in their actions In conclusion I highly recommend that this book be a must read It really is an enjoyable experience
