A beautiful life story--or part of it. The thoughts that invade her head each time the ocean calls her as she relates in the introduction, and immerses herself within the confines of the warmth of the ocean almost forgetting her fears until something happens that creates pain and fear within her body. What happens is not uncommon and her reaction and ability to overcome amazing.
The Climb is a great poem that tells a story about how triumph, success, defeat, fear and finding your purpose and begging or asking for help. There are so many stories in this collection that I have decided to spotlight just four in my review. Revenge comes when you least expect it and often justice takes what some think a blind eye when money is involved and power.

Right out of Edgar Allan Poe this story is eerie, frightening and has all the earmarks of a Poe ending. Ashley Fontaine creates a story so graphically depicted, told by Marie in her own voice and ending in the true classic way of a create horror story. Read it to find out just how Marie gets justice for Cara but the courts do not.

The story offers hope, joy and redemption not only to her but to her father too. Discussions with him about salvation did not meet a positive response for many years.

Two young maidens find magnificent bulbs with a sweet aroma on a grassy hilltop. One decides to take care of her bulbs and leave them in the soil, water them and care for them daily.
Patience and nurturing her babies and making sure they would be cared for. The second wanted immediate gratification and decided she could improve on Mother Nature and tore the bulbs from the soil and planted them in a cold and hard ceramic pot. The end result is truly remarkable. Both maidens had bulbs that grew but the differences you have to read for yourself. Instant gratification does not always yield the results you want.

The poems are like polished gems that you have to experience for yourself. I will just name a few of my favorites: 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.
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.
Nov 11, Uvi Poznansky rated it it was amazing. This book is an eclectic mix of poetry and prose. It brings up a bold presence of the woman standing in front of you. There is nothing meek about Ashley Fontainne's voice. Aimed straight at the reader, it is strong, full of passion, pain, despair and hope. She lets these emotion out with full force, wielding danger over herself and those closest to her, willing to have it all come ablaze.
At times she starts with a soft touch, and the whisper of her words is so gentle, illusive even, that you just know that in a minute all will change, and the full, immense range of her emotions will soon erupt; which of course, it does, not diminishing the beginning but rather, using it as a stark contrast. Her pain comes with simple images. To see where the ending began" In another poem, That is who I am, the line repeats at the end of each verse as if to punctuate the assertive nature of this woman.
That is who I am. She is a force, and you must face her and meet her on her terms. The book is short, I read in in one breath, which left me wanting more! What you hear is not rambling, but a full-throated roar. May 05, Lindsay Kendal rated it it was amazing Shelves: I was asked to review this book, honestly, before it went to publication.
