About the Book Field Notes

Sunshine may have been born with a silver spoon in her mouth, but it needs polishing every now and then.

 Book Cover of Field Notes: A Life Story

This novel is a precious gem based on true events. You will delight as Sunshine takes you back through the memories of her life with Fields. The untimely death of Fields brings their relationship into another dimension. Looking at the world through a uniquely original lens, Sunshine is neither equivocal nor self-doubting, which makes her a most appealing character in this day and age of too much fretful self-examination. She accepts her world and does not much quarrel with fate.

Sunshine manages to lead the reader back and forth between past and present in language that is precise, witty, though often cutting. She includes generous doses of earthy as well as ethereal philosophy and advice. Early on, Sunshine’s father tells her that everything in the world is hers, but it’s up to her to figure out what she’s willing to do to get it. With their beloved Southern housekeeper, she reminisces over the Sunday fried chicken, and takes to heart Lula’s advice not to leave her mind idle because someone else might just use it.

Field Notes: A Life Story, the novel written by Sheila Clapkin, was published by BookSurge Publishing in November 2007 as a 294 page paperback (9 in. x 6.2 in. x 1 in.)
