Plot outline: Everyone in Washington knows Madeleine and Jack Hunter. Maddy is an award-winning TV anchorwoman, and Jack is the head of her network and an adviser to the President on media issues. To the world, theirs is a storybook marriage. But behind the locked doors of their lush Georgetown home, a very different story emerges.
For as Maddy’s career soars, a bitter edge of control and jealousy has crept in, so that the woman the nation idolises lives in degradation and fear. The cruelty she experiences at Jack’s hands leaves no bruises, no scars, only the wounds of fear, humiliation and isolation.
My Review: Danielle Steel is one of my all time favourite authors, and Journey is a classic that was written a few years ago. What I love about Danielle’s writing is that she makes her characters as real as possible. Domestic violence is a horrible ordeal to go through, and Danielle provides an aspect of a couple, who are well known and living a life others envy, whilst behind closed doors, the terror and abuse to Maddy is raw and dangerous. As well as this, Journey highlights the signs of domestic violence.
Recommendation: I would recommend this book.
My Rating: 4*
