"A Profound Reading Experience

Ashley Fontainne, a gifted writer of popular mystery and suspense thrillers, has written a book of poetry and short stories. To be able to master the different skill sets it takes to write in different genres speaks volumes for this author's talent. If we don't watch out, Ms. Fontainne will be repainting the Sistine Chapel next.

The reader can easily identify with Ms. Fontainne's poetry. It is a moving and profound experience, with a kaleidoscope of emotions; sometimes exploding rage, sometimes haunting and plaintive, often times lyrical, spiritually uplifting, and joyful. Ms. Fontainne takes the reader into a private world of her journeys and those of others she has known. The poems are like polished gems that you have to experience for yourself. I will just name a few of my favorites: "Sunrise, Sunset", "Words" and "That Is Who I Am".

Kudos to Ms. Fontainne for also exhibiting a dexterity in writing short stories. Her inner voice comes through loud and clear as if she is a medium for the people she writes about and their past wounds, emotional scars, betrayals, victories, journeys, vengeance, love and salvation. Ms. Fontainne's acute eye for detail serves her well as she meticulously sets the stage for each of her short stories, and reels you in like a magnet so you will be rooted to your seat until you have read them all. Whether it's the little girl's nightmare, or a young girls tortured journey, or a horrific tale of abuse, her gripping stories are riveting to the end." - author Joanna Lee Doster

A lovely easy read full of fierce emotional poems and engaging short stories. Ashley continues to show just what a wonderful writer she is with her ability to pull her reader into the mind of the characters she is sharing with them. Love, Anger, Hope, Despair. You get a taste of everything. And don't forget revenge. Each poem or story connects your mind, heart and soul with the character telling you the passage. A very enjoyable read and fairly quickly. Great for before bed relaxation or during a nice hot bath.
