My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a great audible read. I honestly was drawn into this story and couldn’t stop listening to it. I was riveted, wanting to know more about Rae and how her world was turned upside down. It was interesting to see how her world evolved around Dolly - her best friend, Dolly’s brother - Howard and Rae’s husband. They’d been married for 25 years, and his decision, tore them apart.

It was such a difficult time for Rae. Her best friend was in the middle, and she didn’t have a person she could relay all her feelings too. Rae had been such a quiet and shy personality all her life, and really didn’t get a chance to shine. I could see the real Rae trying to break out, but she kept keeping the peace. She was good to all her family and willing to do anything for them. I just wished she would stand up for herself and break free.

There was an element to the story that changed Rae, and she started to express herself more. She was still a bit of a push over, but started to open up. She was there for her children, and supported them at all costs. At the end, I would’ve liked to see a bit more of Rae.

Prowse did a fabulous job of narrating her story. I was captivated by her story and really enjoyed the story from start to finish.

Published: December 20, 2018

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 keep the peace, as she always has, or put herself first for once and find out who she really is.
