Joyce Hodges-Hite's New Book "We're Going the Wrong Way Again, Jim" is a Beautiful Memoir That Proves That the Chase Can Be Far More Important Than the Finish Line.

Joyce Hodges-Hite, a retired teacher and gifted writer, has completed her most recent book “We’re going the wrong way again, Jim”:  a heartfelt and intimate look at what a true loving relationship can be, and how to make marriage work, even if it’s not the first time around.

After her husband Jim’s death, Joyce thought all his friends should know how their relationship had evolved. Joyce says, “We often compared our relationship to a rubber band which, though stretched, would always return to its original shape.”

Published by Fulton Books, Joyce Hodges-Hite’s book is the story of how she and her eternally optimistic husband managed to stay together, work together, and worship together.  

Joyce says that her husband Jim had a painfully optimistic outlook on life, and he shared it with everyone he came in contact with. In his multicareer life, he touched people from many backgrounds different from his own. His time in the mega high school (Central Catholic in Toledo), his seminary life in Cincinnati, and his short time in the priesthood in Detroit and in South Georgia prepared him for handling unexpected relationships—one of which led to a marriage. Following that, fitting in became a career of its own.

But it was in his second marriage that he dared to branch out, taking on challenges that he had unwittingly put on hold for the duration of the first.

Jim and Joyce finished their teaching careers and embarked on a life which could not be contained in one town, one state, or even one country. They chased after goals they had thought they could never achieve, and then realized it was the chase that was more important than the finish line. They learned that divergent personalities could merge successfully and often compared their relationship to a rubber band which, though stretched, would always return to its original shape.

Readers who wish to experience this soulful and heartfelt work can purchase “We’re going the wrong way again, Jim” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Kobo, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
