The History of Us, by Leah Stewart.

JacketJust as 28 year-old Eloise Hempl is starting her career as a history professor at Harvard, she gets a call from her oldest niece, 11 year-old Theo, asking Eloise to come to her and her two siblings : their parents’ sightseeing helicopter has crashed and both have died.  Flash forward 17 years.  Eloise wants to sell the historic family mansion and the cobbled-together-family’s history is dissected.
