Luminous. Readers who appreciate outstanding writing are those most likely to enjoy the nine pieces in Jo Ann Beard’s collection titled, Festival Days. The depth of character development leads to insight about human behavior and highlights the complexity of our interior lives. Beard’s descriptions shine light on what’s often hidden in what we fail to observe. Thanks to her writing, the world become luminous. Finally, I thought the ways in which Beard reveals and constrains the emotions of her characters enhanced the depth of her insight and our enlightenment after reading these stories. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase Festival Days from amazon.com.
