As we know from everyone from Jane Austen to Henry James, an inheritance can do unexpected things to a family.
Kerry Reif is counting down the seconds, minutes, hours, and days to when she can access the inheritance her parents left her.

Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
