In her 50th bestselling novel, Danielle Steel takes us behind the closed doors of a prominent marriage to explore the private secrets hidden behind public lives. Journey Everyone in Washington knows Madeleine and Jack Hunter. Maddy is an award-winning TV anchorwoman. Jack is the head of her network, an adviser to the President on media issues. To the world, theirs is a storybook marriage. Two brilliant careers. A long, loving partnership. But behind the locked doors of their lush Georgetown home, a very different story emerges. For as Maddy's career soars, a bitter edge has crept into Jack's words, a pattern of subtle put-downs, control, and jealousy that Maddy has always tried to ignore and deny. For Maddy, there are no bruises, no scars, only the daggers of fear, humiliation, and isolation. Their effect as powerful as the gun, the knife, or the fist, the wounds as deep. Through hard work, long years, and with Jack's help, Maddy has become a role model and a star. It seems impossible to believe that a woman the nation idolizes lives in degradation and fear. Only Maddy knows the terror in her heart. Her secrets are well kept, sometimes even from herself. Maddy's journey to healing begins when the President's wife offers an extraordinary opportunity, the chance to join her newly formed Commission on Violence Against Women. There, Maddy hears chilling stories from terrified wives and girlfriends that sound eerily familiar. And there she comes to know Bill Alexander, a distinguished scholar and diplomat who also works on the commission. Bill suspects that something is terribly wrong in Maddy's marriage and begs her to open her eyes. And as Maddy slowly, painfully takes the first steps toward freedom, as she and Bill grow closer, a remarkable series of events begins to unfold...a stranger from Maddy's past suddenly reappears...White House headlines bring the nation to a standstill...and a devastating tragedy occurs, forcing Maddy to realize just how much she has lost and how much has been taken from her--her confidence, her trust, her self-respect. As she is faced with the most difficult choice of her life, Maddy's extraordinary journey comes to a close, and with it comes a strength she never knew she had and a gift she never could have expected--a gift that will change her life forever. Set against a vivid backdrop of world-shattering events,Journeyis a book about abuse, in its subtlest forms. The powerful effects that last a lifetime. With wisdom and compassion, bestselling novelist Danielle Steel reminds us that no one is exempt from the effects of this devastating disease, which crosses social borders, has no respect for money, power, or success. But at its core,Journeyis a book about hope, about change, and about daring to be free. From the Hardcover edition.… (més)

Bajo la relación que mantienen Maddy y Jack, un matrimonio aparentemente perfecto, arropado por el éxito profesional, se oculta una pesadilla de maltratos físicos y psicológicos. Danielle Steel, prolífica autora de novela romántica y una de las escritoras más leídas en todos los idiomas, incide con su habitual fuerza narrativa en esta tragedia cotidiana que cada vez resulta más frecuente y estremecedora. A lo largo de las páginas que componen esta magnética historia y con la ayuda de Bill, Maddy, célebre presentadora televisiva, irá conociendo el testimonio de otras mujeres que se encuentran en su situación y adquirirá progresiva conciencia de su problema y de su necesidad de liberarse.

Journey by Danielle Steel
She works with an anchorman at the news station and takes on more work for the commission. It is an organization to help
battered women to feel good about themselves and to gain courage to take action and do what they have to, to get on with their lives.
She has knowledge and lives it daily but there are no outward signs...
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )

Maddy è un'affermata anchorwoman, Jack, suo marito, è il proprietario dell'emittente televisiva per la quale lei lavora.
Sembrano felici, ma la donna - reduce da una precedente relazione con un uomo violento - si rende conto di essere
completamente manipolata da Jack. E, quando le offrono di entrare nella Commissione sugli abusi contre le donne, Maddy
capisce che può liberarsi dalla tirannia del marito. Danielle Steel conduce le lettrici dietro le porte chiuse di un importante
matrimonio dell'alta società americana, scoprendo quali segreti si nascondono sotto la facciata della vita pubblica.
