Even though her life has its ups and downs, Annette Goode Davis feels lucky. Most of all, she's grateful that her husband, Pee Wee, took her back after he discovered she was having an affair. The trouble is, Annette isn't sure his heart is really in it. Her best friend Rhoda is quick to point out that Annette got herself into this mess, so she has to be patient with Pee Wee. But Annette's suspicions are confirmed when Pee Wee moves out--and in with his new lady.
Devastated, Annette won't let her family go without a fight, but she also knows she must prepare for the worst. Because one lesson she's learned all too well is that when life kicks you in the teeth, you have to come out swinging.
