Summary

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 realizes 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.

I LOVED IT

really liked this audio and like that the author is reading it - Rae's story is one i related to. I don't want to give any spoilers but i was very happy with the ending. It made me think about my own life and all the things I do that are unappreciated I wont be taking action like Rae but i will make changes. I love all of Amandas books but this one is one of my favourites.

Not Bad: Like All Her Books

Another Amanda Prowse book with no real surprises, moderately engaging characters, and a bit of plot in one area (the end of the book, basically).

I listened to it whilst doing bits and bobs around the house or trying to go to sleep, and it was fine for those activities, as all of her books are. She's a prolific author and she reads well, which explains her fanbase, and she does actually give me hope that I might be published one day, which is nice. I digress:

This was a 3 star book with a 4 star ending, so I've given it 4 stars. I was fairly indifferent to the characters and their stories, and the author/narrator could work on doing different voices for each character, but this book was perfectly fine, with a handful of genuinely interesting moments.

Nice easy read

Even though most of the story was predictable the twist at the end made it different

Absolutely loved it

Such a lovely book and some lol moments and some very sad ones too. But as usual Amanda Prowse has done herself proud. I love her books and hats off to her for narrating it herself. i thoroughly enjoyed it.
