An age-old theme that speaks to the current audience...

ISSUES by Sharon St. John is a wonderfully written and richly descriptive novel with superbly drawn characters and settings. The threads of storytelling are expertly woven in this age-old theme that speaks to the current audience. Skillfully constructed, this dramatic and suspenseful tale will have you turning the pages from beginning to end.

The story had every element a good story should have. A solid plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There were plenty of twists and turns that I didn’t see coming and that added to the book’s mystique. There’s also plenty of imagery in the writing style that makes you feel like you are right there in the story, and that’s something I look for in a good book. Although, not recommended for the ‘linguistically sensitive’ as profanity is used throughout, and there are scenes of a sexual nature.

What readers might take away from this yarn, is that you're better off doing something healing wise in order to clear out the toxic component of your relationship, even if you're still together. It will free you up to have a better connection, or in the case of an ex, to move on so you don't feel persuasively pulled back into the relationship. While you are yearning for an old relationship, there isn't any room for a new one to enter into your life, one that you have emotional room for.

A well written African American women's contemporary fiction. Recommended.
