Publisher's Summary

In this stunning sequel to her acclaimed debut My Brother's Keeper, number one national best-selling 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 45, 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.

Exhausting

I can't even stand it any more, at chapter 8 and i want to cut my wrist. I don't know if it'll get better from there but I just requested my credit back.

Hell, this is depressing the hell outta me!!

good story

I enjoyed the story and the narration however I feel like the author kind of drops you at the end and cuts it off like she is ready to be done with it already lol.
