Some Sunday by Margaret Johnson-Hodge

Sandy hutchinson has faced times so hard they nearly broke her. The death of her young Trinidadian husband, Adrian, from AIDS was a powerful kind of hurting that left her wary of ever loving again. Then Adrian's brother, Winston, begins to re-awaken her feelings—and her conflicts about the past. But just when Sandy thinks she's getting her mind straight, life throws her a curve. His name is Randall—a contractor who arrives to remodel her basement, and may just renovate her heart.

Sandy's three best friends—Martha, Britney, and Janice—are going through changes too. Hard-nosed Assistant District Attorney Martha has met a guy who can make a fairytale love ocme true...if she doesn't push too hard, too fast to live happily-ever-after. A big woman in size and loving, Britney is a new mama, and it's turning out that "you, me, and baby makes three" may wreck her nerves, if not her marriage. And Janice seems to have finally bumped into Mr. Right, a man who actually wants commitment. So why is she getting cold feet as their relationship heats up?

With all the rich, complex drama of Butterscotch Blues, Margaret Johnson-Hodge has created another satisfying story about women who dare to lead with their hearts...and find strength in that bone-deep quality called soul.

I found this book to be so great I could not put it down. I hated going to sleep waiting to read what is going to happen next. Here is a book that pulls you into the charaters lives and even have you cheering and crying at the same time. This is the first book I have ever read by this author and now I want to go back and read the first book of this sequel and I will be doing that as soon as I get to the store to buy it.

I was in the book store searching for a new find some books to get me through the weekend when I was showed to pick up this book called True Lies. I walked around with it for a while and decided to put it back because I saw another book that also peeked my interest. So I put True Lies back and got the other book, I had three books already and something told me to put the one back, and to not leave the store without True Lies.... I followed my first mind cause I do not argue, when I listen to my first mind it never leads me astray. God in heaven knows best, I read True Lies and I read the author's name and at the end of the book it was giving other titles of other books she has written. Mrs. Margaret Johnson-Hodge, I am just starting out reading your books, I was lead to read them, this I know for a fact, I can't get enough of your tremendous work. My heavenly father has blessed you with a gift and you touch my inner being with your magneficant writing. God knows I have as well as others are going through trying times and he put your books in my life, you Mrs. Margaret Johnson-Hodge are conditioning my world. I work in the community of the city I live in,in Tennessee, and I am an Educational- Asst. at an elementary school here. I deal with all walks of life and I have seen a lot of things, in my 39 years of living this life, I was also an orphan at age 9. You have a talent and I am just beginning to know you, and I love all of your work , I am on my fourth book, you have written, and am having a hard time finding them at the bookstores in my city. I have borrowed the last 3 from the library and do not want to give them back, because I want them for my own personal library at my house. I am trying to get them from back order. I hope and pray you will continue to write and keep enlightening us your readers, because you have a blessed talent. J. Jacobs, Mphs. TN

I read the Butter Scotch Blues, and whelp out loud. So real was it's emotional contents. I had no choice but to read Some Sunday. It took me on a journey I had to share with my daughters. I'm sitting at my computer trying to find words to implore you to read these books. I will simply say this. I am now a true fan of Ms Margaret Johnson-Hodge, and am grateful God gave her this gift. Read these books. You'll never forget them. Rose Minter

This book was easy to read and it dealt with how important family and friends are especially when you are confronted with such a dreadful disease as AIDS! Regardless of the make-up of each of these ladies, they all needed a 'Some Sunday' to help calm the sometimes misfortune events of everyday living.

Definitely started out with a punch! Kept me holding on until the end. Good twists and surprises. Not high on my book list but it is a refreshing read from the normal trilogy love story.

'Some Sunday' is such an awesome expression. I call it an expression because it obviously comes from real life feelings and experiences. The words are so realistic and alive it carries you into the world of each character. It is definitely a dynamic release from this illustrious and awesome writer. I encourage everyone to make this book apart of your collection.

I have just completed Some Sunday and it was awsome!!! I can relate the lives of each of these women to a sistefriend that I know/knew as well as myself. I could not put the book down. This was so refreshing because there was no perfect ending I saw it as lessons learned.

In New York City, Sandy deeply grieves the death of her beloved husband who succumbed to AIDS. As Sandy struggles to regain her equilibrium, she finds solace in a safe relationship with her brother-in-law before testing the deeper rapids with a contractor.

While Sandy toils with finding a reason to live, her best friends also struggle with life. In the courtroom Martha the assistant DA is a grandmaster, but her personal life consists of alcohol and the drudgery of trying not to lose her lover. Insecure Janice goads her fiancé into returning to the arms of his previous lover. Britney seemingly has it all with her wonderful husband and baby, but she is pregnant and along with her spouse, nearly bankrupt by emulating the rich on a middle class income.

The sequel to BUTTERSCOTCH BLUES, SOME SUNDAY uses vignettes starring the four women to provide insight into a wide range of problems confronting African-American females though the issues seem more universal. The four female friends emotionally support one another as each one skirmishes with different problems and stress. Margaret Johnson-Hodge shows she is quite an author with this deep look into the darker side of the modern American dream that can only be brightened through friendship and caring relationships.

Wow¿what a ride! MJH picks up in Some Sunday where Butterscotch Blues leaves us. In Some Sunday, the four friends: Sandy, Britney, Janice, and Martha are dealing with relationships (old and new) and struggling with internal issues ranging from low self esteem, depression, emotional breakdowns, alcoholism, jealousy, and envy among friends. Sandy is dealing with the loss of her husband, Adrian, who died from AIDS and finds herself relying heavily on her brother-in-law, Winston, (the near mirror-image-of-Adrian who¿s more than willing to offer support and other things) and struggling with her feelings toward Randall, her first outside interest since Adrian¿s passing. She¿s on a path of healing and self-discovery that takes many twists and turns. The same path of self-discovery reveals some hidden truths for Martha and Janice¿and although extremely painful and candid as it is¿each manages to either stand willingly or be dragged before the mirror for self-examination before the therapy can begin. Britney, a mother and wife, comes to realize that she's blessed and is not afraid to acknowledge that despite the circumstances that led her to her current situation. MJH is a relationship master digging beneath the surface and examines the psyche of her characters (both male and female) to give them life and an uncanny realism. This is a great sequel.

This book would have gotten five stars if Ms. Johnson-Hodge had not deemed it appropriate to make West Indians, in particular the Trinidadians in her book, sound like illiterate, incoherent language abusers. I am a Jamaican, who grew up in Jamaica with a Trinidadian father and never in my life have I heard any of my relatives speak the way Ms. Johnson-Hodge indicates in her book. 'Lubbed' for loved is one quite offensive instance and she uses this one quite often in her book. The most glaring offense is when she has one of her characters refusing to dance to the music of the Mighty Sparrow by saying reggae was not her thing. Ms. Johnson-Hodge, the Mighty Sparrow is one of the greatest calypsonians ever. I know it's fiction, but you write with accuracy about the non-West Indians in your book. That said, the story is wonderful, and I kept putting the book down just so I could remain in these people's lives longer.
