Publisher's Summary

On the surface, Anise seems to have it all: a successful career, a solid marriage, and good friends. But when she applies for a promotion at work, she loses out to a white colleague who isn't nearly as qualified for the job. However, the problem at work is only the beginning of Anise's troubles.
After being married for four seemingly blissful years, she discovers that her husband is having an affair. And to make matters worse, her best friend at work is keeping dangerous secrets. But Anise is no quitter. As brave as she is determined, she reaches deep inside her soul to find the strength and courage to overcome heartbreak and stay her course. Ultimately, she will discover that what is worth having is worth fighting for - in her career and, most important, in her heart.
Contains mature themes.

Great story! Issues still exist

I enjoyed this story. The opposition that the main character faced is real! So many times people are passed over for promotions because the powers at be let personal feelings sway their decision.

Great book and excellent narration

Great book and narration. It hit on quite a few reality topics with discrimination in the work place. A must read
