Rainie Duske, a resident of Kelowna in Canada’s British Columbia, embarked on this red-flag documentation journey because, as she explained: “I am a mother, and I want my daughter, who has blossomed into a beautiful young woman, to be able to recognize some of the red flags maturing women encounter at different stages in her life.”
Many mothers can attest to sleepless nights spent worrying about the best way to talk to their daughters about relationships, impending or current. Some daughters may be entangled in relationships that are clearly unwise, yet attempts to talk them out of it oftentimes prove futile. Through this literary pursuit, Rainie aimed to bring dating red-flag tips not only to her daughter, but to all daughters and women who read her book.
A strong, adventurous woman with an anthropological background, author, Raine Duske has managed to capture the attention of females around the world with her book titled, “69 Red Flags – what your mother never told you.” As women voraciously consume the book’s contents, rollicking with laughter when identifiable moments are described, it becomes evident that this is more than just a quick read. Admittedly, as each red flag is read and pages are avidly turned to get to the next red flag, then the next, chuckles soon turn into the somber realization that each point raised is deserving of more than a mere guffaw. This book is akin to a wise female companion, whose invisible presence must be attendant at every date and relationship a girlfriend attempts to step into.
