In The History of Us, the newest novel by the celebrated author of The Myth of You and Me, three grown siblings return to their childhood home and face a family secret that forces them to reexamine their relationships to each otherand to the aunt who took them in as children. Eloise Hempel is on her way to teach a class at Harvard when she receives devastating news. Her sister and her husband have been killed in a tragic accident, and Eloise must return home to Cincinnati to take her sister's three children, Theodora, Josh, and Claire, out of the hands of her own incapable mother. She moves back into her mother's ancient house and, after her mother leaves, pours her own money into its upkeep. Nearly two decades later, Eloise is still in that house, still thinking about what she left behind. With Claire leaving for New York City for a promising ballet career, Eloise has plans to finally embark on a life that's hers alone. But when her mother makes a competition out of who inherits the house, and Claire reveals a life-changing secret, their makeshift family begins to fall apart. A "perceptive writer with a keen grasp of contemporary culture and domestic life" ( Booklist), Leah Stewart creates a deeply moving story of love, loss, sibling relationships, and the paths not taken.
