"Heartwarming mainstream novel"
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
fiancÚ 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
