This book was amazingly good. It was sad, funny, and thought-provoking. Jessie's life spans over many decades and his decisions affect so many but mostly his daughters. I was amazed at the harm a mother could do to her own children to get even and the love that was developed despite difficult times. Lucy is a wonderful person who was able to do something special for the man she loved.

I have read all of the books by Georgia Bockoven except the Harlequin Romance titles.....I liked them all but this was THE BEST yet. It isn't often we hear from her 'pen' so it took me a while to find her again. I am so glad I did. This is the story of Jesse Reed and his daughters -- his determination to be a successful son and businessman, husband and father. The story line takes the reader through the early days of oil discovery in Oklahoma and Texas. It weaves a thread to California and four modern day women still feeling the effects of being left to figure life out with no biological father. Then, rather abruptly they are summoned by Jesse's long time friend and lawyer to meet him before he dies. What follows are more revelations of family history they all share and an astonishing inheritance that changes their lives. But before they can accept, they have to fulfill requirements. This is not met without conflict. Ms Bockoven writes a beautiful story of love revealed in all aspects, through Jesse's relationships. -- His family, his work ethics, his friends and his daughter's and their mothers and finally the daughters themselves. It's interesting and satisfying and at times a little bit funny too!! It's just a very good story. If you have sisters or have always wanted one, this would be a good read for you.

Format: Paperback
In March 2000, attorney Lucy Hargreaves sends letters to four women. In the note, she says she represents Jessie Patrick Reed, who claims to be their biological father that none of them ever met or new existed. He is dying and would like to meet them in his home in Sacramento.

Ginger Reynolds and Marc Osborne are divorcing but he will not leave until their two children understand he is not leaving them, but is stunned to learn her loving caring parents adopted her. Twentyish filmmaker Christina Alvarado slightly remembers him but never understood why he left her; her mate Randy wants her to go in case Jessie is rich so they can fund a project in Los Angeles. Rachel Nolan learns her husband Jeff is having an affair with Sandy on the same day she finds out that a Jessie Reed claims to be her father. Elizabeth Walker loves her husband Sam, her younger sister Stephanie and her mom Denise, but though years have passed she never understood why her dad Jessie deserted her; now he wants to see her but she does not want to see him though she wants to confront him. Now four stepsisters meet for the first time when they visit their dying biological dad.

This is a discerning extended family drama that focuses on how much society changes over the decades as some taboos become acceptable and others not. This book is character driven by the four stepsisters; each having widely different personalities, family issues and diverse reasons for wanting to know why he left them. The support cast especially Lucy and Jessie enhances an epic thought provoking look at how societal customs change over time.

This was an interesting book and well worth the read. Liked the way the four characters were so diverse and yet their themes in life intersected in some ways such as Ginger and Rachel. No real surprises, but it will hold you attention. No violence. Just a nice, easy read.

Jessie Reed is dying and longs to make a connection with his four daughters one last time before he dies. However, his plans don't completely pan out the way he wants, and his Last Will has these women committing to six months of their lives listening to explanations that they refused to hear when Jessie was alive.

Needy Ginger Reynolds who is in an adulterous relationship with a married man, is very surprised with the news that greets her when she meets Jessie and discovers secrets from her past as well as a portrait of life for the betrayed wife.

Chip-on-her-shoulder, Christina Alvarado, knew that Jessie Reed is her father, and that he walked away from her years ago. She agrees to the meeting to gain something monetary for her chosen career. However, Christina gains more than she ever knew she wanted or needed.

Rachel Nolan's marriage is on the verge of collapse after discovering her hubby of ten years has recently had an affair when she receives the note to meet Jessie Reed. Rachel never knew Jessie Reed was her father let alone that she has three sisters. However, Rachel soon finds support from someone she would have never met or befriended before.

Elizabeth Walker has buried her pain from her father's abandonment so deeply that not many people even know she has it. On the surface, she seems the most put together of the four, yet once she gives in to seeing Jessie, her carefully constructed walls start cracking and she discovers some truths and hidden memories that were long since hidden by her protective shell.

The Year Everything Changed is a fabulous read about new beginnings, starting over when you think all is lost, learning to forgive and moving on with what you have, building through the debris . . .
