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.
This is the story of Rae-Valentine and her family. She realises she is the one that does everything for everyone else and leaves herself feeling as though she is a pushover. She always thinks of others before herself and she is fed up with it. Then right before her holiday with her husband, he drops a massive bombshell that leaves Rae reeling. What should she do? It broke my heart to see how Rae was feeling, when she goes on holiday with her best mate I thought good on her but then there is more turmoil to come. My heart went out to her and all the other women that feel like they have been taken for granted.
