Read full description of the books Butterscotch Blues:Your hearts desires/and then you can't
BUTTERSCOTCH BLUES is amongst the greatest books I've read! It deals with very real issues, AIDS, the color syndrome amongst blacks, love, marriage, friendship, and loneliness. Four friends literally transform before your very eyes.
Sandy, after being involved in a ‘so I won't be alone relationship,’ finally gets the picture. She meets Adrian, a beautiful man, who opens her eyes, to the beauty of being a beautiful dark skin black and opens her mind to the reality of safe sex as well as her heart to an abiding love.
Janice is the friend we all have. She can't seem to get that she keeps settling and giving way too much of herself in these one sided relationships finally gets some guts, a brain and a real man.
Martha the money-making sistah whose standards are set entirely too high can't get a man so she is turning into a bitter, depressing drunk who sees that she has to let it be and finally gets a man who is intelligent enough to do whatever he chooses, but he does things to impress self.
Britney has weight and low self esteem issues. Finds a sponsor who shows her love isn't always a size 6 and she begins to take more pride in herself.
It's so much more it's about the power of an abiding love! As you read you're like okay this is it do it and then it's too late they break up she can't cope and when finally all the cards are on the table and ... I am still crying! This is the first book I've read by Margaret Johnson-Hodge I will be checking out her other ones real soon.
