From bestselling author Amanda Prowse comes the poignant tale of a woman who has always been there for her family. But will they be there for her?
Rae-Valentine and Howard were childhood sweethearts. They’ve shared twenty-five peaceful years since they were brought together by Dolly, Howard’s larger-than-life sister. But now, on the night of their wedding anniversary, Howard reveals a shocking betrayal that leaves Rae reeling.
Heartbroken, she takes Dolly on her would-be anniversary trip to Antigua and the two women drink and dance and talk like they haven’t in years. But in the break from real life, Rae realises her choices have always been made for her, and suddenly she’s questioning not only her fragile marriage but also her one-sided friendships. Is she really the pushover everyone else sees?
When Howard comes looking for reconciliation, Rae has a choice to make: keep the peace, as she always has, or put herself first for once and find out who she really is.
Amanda Prowse takes her readers on a rollercoaster journey of emotions with wonderfully crafted characters.
As always with this author you should have the tissues handy – you will need them!
It is a beautiful story which holds the reader captive from the first few pages due to Amanda’s way of writing that makes you really feel deeply for the characters.
This is a book that gives the message that we should be the person that we want to be, to try to live the life we want for ourselves, and not for anyone else.
Beautiful and heartfelt book. Thank you Amanda.
