Sylvia "Suvie" Allen finds her perfect life with her husband of nineteen years shattered by the arrival of her first love, Philip Butler, who has returned to beg forgiveness for a past betrayal and win her love. Reprint.


I have read and enjoyed all of Margaret Johnson Hodge books but for some reason this touched a special place in my heart. For anyone who has gone on to be a wife and mother but wondered and secretly dreamed about that first love that got way this will awaken your senses as you remember but it will also bring you to your senses. Our feaured lady in the story has a chance to go back and the choices she makes, the consequences of those choices will have you reading it and living it until the last page. I loved it.
I've never read one of MJH's books before but when I read the back, I knew this was a book I would enjoy. I identified with Suvie in so many ways because my first love broke my heart, choosing to marry the young lady with whom he cheated on me. We never got to have that final conversation and a couple of months ago (11 yrs after we last saw each other) he reached out via a relative and sent a message to me. I had read "Journey" before this happened and wished for the opportunity to close that chapter once and for all. I just re-read "Journey" with a deeper appreciation. The difference between Suvie and I (and my biggest beef with her) is that I laid the past before my husband's feet in the very beginning of our relationship so there are no secrets and while he understands that my meeting with my ex is necessary for closure, he also understands that it's in no way a reflection of my love or adoration for him and our life together. Suvie disappointed me because her secrecry rather than infedility nearly destroyed her marriage. I also wondered what kind of dialogue she and Emory had in the beginning of their relationship that Philip and Dorothy never entered the conversation - it became clear that their relationship prior to this storm despite the 20 + years and two children was truly only on the surface - for her husband to be oblivious to such a deep hurt and betrayal was astounding. I LOVED the setting of the book having attended college and law school at St John's University. Queens holds an extra special place in my heart - I could visualize their neighborhood, Jamaica High School, Suvie driving on the Grand Central Parkway, etc. and it reminded me of some of the best (and saddest) times in my life.

All in all, this was a beautifully written book, I didn't love the ending but I understood it and recognized that anything different would not have been realistic for these characters. I understood exactly what Suvie meant when she said even though she was a grown woman and mother, at that moment she was 15 all over again, devastated by the betrayal that felt as fresh as yesterday - it was amazing to see those emotions put into such beautiful words. I am an avid reader - I love books but there are only two books that I can think of that have truly touched my soul - the first is Mama Day by Gloria Naylor and now A Journey to Here. For someone who has read hundreds if not well over a thousand books in her adult life, that is truly saying something.
To say I was excited upon hearing Margaret Johnson Hodge would release a new novel this year would be an understatement. As I eagerly awaited my copy of A Journey To Here, the buzz was already aglow with praises like "you guys are going to love it" and "I cannot wait to discuss this book." As usual, MJH did not disappoint and I found myself adding A Journey to Here as an all-time favorite for 2003 with a cast of characters I felt like I have known for a lifetime.
Sylvia "Suvie" Allen has it all, according to best friend, Lisa, and other spectators. A mother to two teen-aged daughters, Aaron and Monet, and wife of nineteen years to Emory, Sylvia's life is coveted by many, but to her it is bittersweet. While she loves Emory and would not trade her daughters for the world, Sylvia cannot help but remember the feelings of betrayal and hurt by Phillip, her first true love and best friend, Dorothy. The treachery far behind her now, Sylvia attempts to bury the hatchet until a ringing of the doorbell. With Phillip on the other side a can of worms opens that she is not ready to face. But Phillip is just the beginning of the hurdles the Allens will face within the coming year. As Sylvia struggles to keep the past in the past, curiosity and a broken heart beg for answers and the closure she was deprived of years ago. As Sylvia wrestles with what life could have been and what it has become, Judas rears his head once again. Sylvia is left questioning if the past is worth losing her family as she and Emory struggle to reclaim the rhythm they once danced to.

MJH demonstrates why she is a national best-selling author with A Journey To Here. Hodge consistently creates characters that seem non-fictitious and more like familiar friends. It is often difficult to create many characters readers can empathize with besides the protagonist, but Hodge's adeptness with storytelling is magnificent. I recommend A Journey To Here to book clubs as MJH offers a debatable subject with relationships between fathers and daughters and if an idyllic marriage is attainable after years of longing for your first true love.
