She meets and marries the love of her life, Booker Holmes. They are excited to have their first child, but to their surprise, the doctor discovers there are two heartbeats, not one. Sadie is having twins. The feeling of excitement and nervousness embraces her as she welcomes her fraternal twin sons into the world. They are the first twins in the family, and their personalities are as far apart as the east is from the west.
Vincent is sweet spirited, ambitious, and college driven. His life’s journey is always upward, excelling, and reaching new heights. He is a trailblazer, and breaks barriers by becoming a college graduate, lawyer, and first black man to become “The Attorney General” of Missouri. He is a son every parent dream of.
His brother Victor is high spirited, makes daredevil moves, and falls into the street life. His life is headed downward. He knows his family wants nothing but the best for him, but he rejects it.
