Everyone knows Madeleine and Jack Hunter. Maddy is an award-winning TV anchorwoman. Jack is the head of her network. To the world, theirs is a storybook marriage. But behind the doors of their lush Georgetown home a different story emerges.

Maddy has always tried to deny Jack’s subtle put-downs, control, and jealousy. She has no bruises, only the daggers of fear, humiliation, and isolation — as powerful as the gun or the fist, the wounds as deep. It seems impossible that a woman the nation idolizes lives in degradation and fear. Maddy’s secrets are well kept, even from herself.

Maddy’s healing begins when she joins the First Lady’s Commission on Violence Against Women. There, she hears eerily familiar stories from terrified wives and girlfriends. And there she comes to know Bill Alexander, a distinguished diplomat. Bill suspects that something is terribly wrong in Maddy’s marriage and begs her to open her eyes.

As she takes the first steps toward freedom, a remarkable series of events unfolds ... a stranger from Maddy’s past reappears ... White House headlines bring the nation to a standstill ... and a devastating tragedy forces Maddy to realize how much has been taken from her. Faced with the most difficult choice of her life, Maddy finds a strength she never knew she had and a gift that will change her life forever.

With wisdom and compassion, bestselling novelist Danielle Steel reminds us that no one is exempt from the effects of abuse, in its subtlest forms. But at its core, Journey is a book about hope, about change, and about daring to be free.

    " I've read this one before, but its a WONDERFUL book, so second time is a charm. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dottie | 2/1/2014

    " Life is a Journey, we all go down this road, but we find ourselves too. "

    " people actually READ this crap?? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabrielle | 1/17/2014

    " This is the first ever Daniele Steel book I have read. I was surprised by how good it was. Originally I bought this book for my mom because Danielle Steel is her favorite author. I ended up reading it just to try it and I'm glad I did. I thought that this book is not a normal love story. There is so much more than that. I actually cried when I read it and that literally never happened before. I think that anyone would like this story because I normally wouldn't read stuf like this and I loved it. I'm glad that I started with this book by Danielle Steel because now I'm eager to read her other books. Now I understand what by mom means when she says Danielle Steel is a great author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy | 1/9/2014

    " Truly a good read about mental/emotional abuse -- upsetting, for sure, but enlightening! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/5/2014

    " A good look inside one woman's journey out of an abusive marriage. It's not the kind you expect, he's rich, powerful and well known, and never hits her, but abuses her and controls her in other ways. Of course there is the obligatory fairy tale ending, but is deeper than most of Steel's books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 12/28/2013

    " This is another beautiful romance novel from Danielle Steel. Very beautiful and touching for a tear-jerker. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Taitt | 12/28/2013

    " I liked this a lot, it's my favorite book of hers so far, good topic, nicely explored, still repeats herself and says things like "they had no other choice" but this one is better than some of the others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melinda Stern | 12/20/2013

    " a difficult topic, and an abosolutely amazing book! the book deals with a lot of emotional abuse, but i really found it an amazing experience to read it. gave me a lot of insight. if you can handle difficult content, i really reccomend it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan Thompson | 8/3/2013

    " This book deals with a very serious topic of subtle abuse which is just as bad or worse than physical abuse. However I found the book too predictable and sappy at the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gayle Sanders | 6/29/2013

    " I found this book rather ordinary. It did deal with an important issue - domestic abuse, however, it felt dated and pedantic. An ok beach read, but nothing special. "
