Memory (Miles Vorkosigan Adventures) (original 1996; edition 1997)
Memory by Lois McMaster Bujold (1996)
Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 067187845X, Mass Market Paperback)Miles turns 30, and--though he isn't slowing down just yet--he is starting to lose interest in the game of Wall: the one where he tries to climb the wall, fails, gets up, and tries again. Having finally reached a point in his life where he can look back and realize that he has managed to prove his courage and competence, he can move on to bigger and better things.
Depending on how you count it, this is the eighth, ninth, tenth, or eleventh book in a series--not all are about Miles or even his extended family. A good place to start is with the first Vorkosigan story, Shards of Honor.
