Book SynopsisIn this stunning sequel to her acclaimed debut My Brother's Keeper, #1 national bestselling author ReShonda Tate Billingsley brings her real-deal insight to a heartfelt new novel about a wife and mother on a daring rescue mission--to save herself. Freshly forty-five, Aja James knows that her life is good, complete with a loving, wealthy husband, well-adjusted children, and a beautiful home. Yet the truth is, she feels painfully unfulfilled, stuck in the present, haunted by a painful past. When a friend suggests a girls' trip to a tropical paradise, Aja hopes a change of scene will also change her perspective. On vacation, filled with fun and freedom, Aja is relieved to find her spirits lifting. But her good time also shines a light on what's troubling her: from her siblings to her husband and kids, she's spent nearly her whole life taking care of everyone--except herself. She's lost her spark. She's lost her identity. Desperate to turn things around, Aja makes an impulsive decision--one that outrages her family and stuns her friends. But it may also be her wisest choice. Because it's only through learning what she could lose--and what's truly worth keeping--that Aja can transform this temporary fix into real, lasting happiness.
