Bea and Awilda have been best friends from the moment Awilda
threw her fourteen year-old self across Beaâ€™s twin-sized bed
as if they had known each other forever. Bubbly, adventurous
Awilda taught sheltered, shy Bea how to dress, wear her hair
and what to do with boys. She even introduced Bea to her
husband, Lonnie, in college, who pledged to take good care
of her for the rest of their lives. But philanderer Lonnie
breaks that promise over and over again, leaving Bea to
wrestle with her self-esteem and long time secret addiction.
Recently Lonnie has plopped the family in a New Jersey upper
class suburb, which lacks the diversity that Bea craves but
has the school district and zip code envy that Lonnie wants.
The demands of carrying a third child and fitting into this
new environment while pretending that her husband is not
cheating on her again, is more than she can handle. And just
when she thinks things canâ€™t get any worst, the ultimate
deception snaps the little thread that was holding her life
together and all comes tumbling down.
Sadeqa Johnson's And Then There Was Me is the story
of love and friendship, heartache and betrayal. Itâ€™s the
journey of a woman stripped down to her lowest point and
needing to find the will to press on.
