    4.0 out of 5 stars Great debut collection, July 20, 2011
    By JD (Cleveland, Ohio USA) – This review is from: Transitions: short stories for a rainy day (Paperback)
    From the Amazon.com Web site

    In her debut short story collection, “Transitions, Short Stories for a Rainy Day”, author Cathy Jo introduces readers to a cast of characters dealing with relationships, isolation, love and loss. Readers may find themselves feeling frustration, anger and joy along with the characters as they struggle through their everyday trials and tribulations.

    The stories in this collection focus primarily on the complicated lives of African-American women, but the plots move in a variety of ways and take some surprising turns that can be shocking, often tragic, and always candid.

    In each of these stories, Cathy Jo paints an expressive picture of these characters lives that seem to reach out to connect with us and challenge us in ways we might not expect, giving her readers something to think about beyond the basic entertainment value of the story.

    Cathy Jo’s “Transitions” exceeded my expectations! I love her style. Her short stories are obviously of human interest and each carry a strong message. Some of the humor made me laugh out loud! Her characters literally came to life! I was impressed with her intricate knowledge and language of each character, male and female, and their respective professions! Each of the stories left me wanting more. I can’t wait for her next production! Great job Cathy Jo!

    Transitions is truly a book that should be read on one of those days that you are feeling down and you need a pick me up, or its raining outside and you just want to curl up on the couch with a good book. A book everyone should read, delivers on all counts, it will put you in the lives of the characters mentioned in the different stories.
