5 stars - "Passion’s Evidence" by , Written on 26 Oct 2009
“From the pleasure in eating fresh strawberries right from the vine to her belief in the connection that be found only in true love to the healing powers of quiet moments at the beach, Fifield has seemingly transferred offered herself as an emotional offering to her readers….For those who appreciate the power that a poem has to capture a moment in time, Passion’s Evidence is a recommended addition to your collection.A Barnes and Noble review


From Love’s Music:
The drums, horns, cymbals
Stir my blood’s pulse
As they must have stirred yours
From Picking Strawberries:
My fingers drool scarlet like a wine maker’s.
Passion’s evidence-
Eating strawberries
Too succulent and sweet for summer.
I let juices run down my fingers
And knees in crimson worms,
To Ty
I feel you in the pauses
And silence
In the moments of peace
Only your breath breaks the air;
Your warmth penetrates me
All is serene.

    A highly entertaining and fascinating read.
  • **** — Sarah Moore, Nashville, Tenn:
    A fresh look into the dangers of a charismatic leader.
  • **** — Amos Lassen, Little Rock, Ark:
    The book is wonderfully written and the characters are drawn with realism so much so that it is easy to see how Elsa was sucked into the whole business.

Letting Go

    "I bought Letting Go on Amazon to read over the weekend. I loved it. Thank goodness I never experienced a bad marriage but you have a knack to allow your readers to put their feet in your victims shoes. Thanks for a great read."
  • Marie Payne:

    In Photographs and Memories, readers will share the journey of one wife, mother, and daughter who is determined to create the best and most meaningful life possible, even in the face of frequent and devastating loss.
  • **** — Reader’s Favorite:
    This is a very emotional story, and a harsh reality, one that most adult children have either faced or will face in the future. This is a fast read that will grab the reader from the beginning.

Passion’s Evidence

  • ***** — A Barnes and Noble review:
    “From the pleasure in eating fresh strawberries right from the vine to her belief in the connection that be found only in true love to the healing powers of quiet moments at the beach, Fifield has seemingly transferred offered herself as an emotional offering to her readers….For those who appreciate the power that a poem has to capture a moment in time, Passion’s Evidence is a recommended addition to your collection.
  • Recommended — From All Books Review:
    Fifield has an ability to shift gears, with startling contrasts. In her opening poem, she moves from strawberry picking, with the juice on her fingers called “passion’s evidence,” but then to her “knees in crimson worms,” and from that to a stream of consciousness: “A space to be alone/to think of you” followed by another shift: “The click of the register rings up trays,” and so it’s on to business.
  • From Book of the Month Review
    in Boomer Times (December 2010):
    “This 77-page book is worth every penny, whether you keep it for your own collection or purchase it for a gift. It reads quickly, with each poem’s meaning easily understood.”
