By Georgia Bockoven
William Morrow, $14.99, 416 pages
This book could not be more aptly titled! Four sisters: Christina, Rachel, Ginger and Elizabeth had no idea each other existed. Each grew up with bitterness as they fantasized the life they did not have because of their missing father; a father they believed did not care for each of them. Suddenly a lawyer beckons the four of them to a meeting with their unknown father, Jesse Reed. As expected, the women feel hatred, confusion and the need for answers. These women learn more about themselves than they imagined and truly learn what being a family is all about.
Bockoven’s book, at times, felt like it was too mired in details but as the story progressed, those details made the difference. Bockoven created characters that were real and circumstances that collided with clarity and truly tested each character. I could not put the book down for the last 100 pages.
