    Leslie Leyland Fields Writes From The Heart

    Surviving The Island Of Grace is an intelligent, exciting and heartwarming memoir by Leslie Leyland Fields. What an amazing life she has led! Her story is honest and soul searching. Her strength and tenacity are something to be admired as she seeks to define her role in life. Leslie braves the elements and struggles against seemingly insurmountable odds in her life as a Salmon fishing woman, with an inner strength that can only come from God.

    This book is not at all what I had expected. Leslie gives details in a way that is not boring to the reader. I've learned so much about the Alaskan bush and about the lives of the fishermen and women who live and work there. This book is a real page turner and an absolutely facinating read that will bring you to tears at times. I would highly recommend it!

    Gripping, moving and compelling, a great read.

    "Surviving the Island of Grace" is, in effect, two books in one. It is a gripping picture of an adventurous and unique lifestyle. Complete with triumph, tragedy, danger, suspense, sorrow and joy. Well written and well paced it is an enjoyable read. But, Leslie Leyland Fields also opens her heart and shares the inner turmoil of this lifestyle. Both the baggage she brings to the Island and the struggles she encounters there. Although we may not relate to the exact circumstances we can all relate to times of isolation in our lives. Islands that tore at the very fabric of our being. Leslie's transparency and openness through extreme circumstances and hardship bring hope for the island times in all our lives.
