Maia, an orphan, can't wait to reach her distant relatives a thousand miles up the Amazon. She imagines a loving family with whom she will share great adventures. Instead she finds two spiteful cousins who see the jungle as the enemy and refuse to go outdoors. But the wonders of the rainforest more than make up for the hideous twins and their parents.

A River's Journey to the Sea is a compilation of poems expressing the poet's thoughts, feelings and experiences as she journeys through life. A compelling and moving journey of the mind; This compilation of poems takes us through a journey of love and lust, despair and hope. A truly magnificent collection of poems. Sarah J. Greg from Miami, FL Inspiring-Surreal; You ever had such deep, strong feelings about something but didn't know how to express them or share them with that special one. You ever had such deep feelings, which made you think it was somehow bad to be feeling them? And then sometimes we go to places in our heads and think things that are so pure and just normal to feel. Jacqueline's poems feel like my own life, they touched me in a way that was so surreal. Her poems have opened up a new path to new adventures of where the mind can go. We are free souls, let us fly and not fear! Well done Jacqueline, who would have ever thought feeling this way was humanely possible and so inspirational as well as uplifting. A reviewer from Toronto, Canada "An Innocence Stolen" was the most powerful piece I read. It is so horrific and truthful. I think a lot of people can relate to this and I like the end when God is questioned. I think when something bad like this happens in a person's life, we wonder, why me? It is painful to read, but a message like this needs to be heard. "Sunshine" gives people hope and it is light and fresh and is just a "feel good" piece. "A Celebration Of You" is about happiness and love to me. It is about being in love and the beauty of life that goes along with it. "If My Heart Could Speak" is also about love and happiness. It is short, sweet and to the point. "Lost Souls" is a powerful piece about the neglect, indifferent world we live in today. Kim Berg, LA, California
