About this title
Sandy Hutchinson has skin so dark and chocolately brown, her friends call her "the Black Diva." At the age of thirty-four, she and her three girlfriends have shared a tight bond since college, and been through the ups and disappointing downs of dating. With high aspirations about careers and love, they sometimes fell a bit short of their dreams, but nevertheless are always there for one another to offer sympathy and support. There's Martha Alston, a successful assistant district attorney, who has the beautiful apartment and luxury car, but is still missing the most important element---someone to love. Britney Weller, timid and overweight, wasn't certain if she would ever find happiness, but when Maurice enters her life, she wonders if this time love will treat her differently. Then there's Janice Duprey, vivacious, warm and giving, she foolishly wears her heart on her sleeve, hoping each time things will somehow turn out differently.
Sandy wonders if love has alluded her as well, until the day she meets Adrian Burton, a Trinidadian with caramel skin, naturally wavy hair, and eyes the color of butterscotch. Sandy, plagued with low self-esteem since childhood, is dubious that he could be attracted to her. But Adrian is earnest in his intentions; he opens his heart and wins her over. Together they share a whirlwind romance filled with blissful happiness, until the night of a fateful call from the hospital and she learns of his ailing ex-wife. Now, Sandy must decide if her love is strong enough to help get them through what may be their darkest hour.
First, I would like to thank my readers who have remained steadfast and faithful to me. As you know I always try to bring something new to the table and this time around is no different.
In "The Real Deal" I explored the notion of what happens when a Black Sista from Harlem runs into a White Man from Malibu. In "A New Day" I explored the issues of class, single motherhood and allowing good love to come into your life. "Warm Hands" was about truly loving yourself before someone else will be able to love you.
My latest, "Butterscotch Blues" deals with meeting the man of your dreams, the one you've wanted forever, that person who elevates you as a woman and casts away all personal demons, only to discover that he is HIV positive. Do you walk away from him? How do you stay? Do you ignore your heart and say goodbye forever, or do you stand up to the fate destiny has given you and remain fast by his side?
This is my first hardcover and I am truly excited about this one. People who have read me know that I always strive to keep it real, no matter how painful that reality is. In "Butterscotch Blues" I continue that process.
As with all my books, I invite you, the reader to sit back and settle in. I hope you will enjoy the ride.
Peace and Blessings, Margaret Johnson-Hodge
