Marcia Talley

As the daughter of a US marine who served in the South Pacific during WW2, this story brought tears to my eyes. I'm so glad you wrote it, and I'm going to give it to my granddaughters for Christmas!

Thank you!

Elaine Viets

Welcome, Jackie, and congratulations on your book. I hope you find your namesake some day.

Jackie Minniti

Hi Marcia,
I can't express the admiration I feel for the men and women who served in WWII! They truly were the Greatest Generation, and we owe them a debt we can never repay. I salute your dad for his service.

Jackie Minniti

Thanks, Elaine! I appreciate the opportunity to share my story. I'm hoping that the book might be the key to reconnecting with Jacqueline. I know it's a long shot, but I believe in miracles!

Mac Wheeler

Best of luck with the book...says a peer on the other side of the bay...who happens to be married to a 6th grade reading teacher :)

Jackie Minniti

Thanks, Mac! I'm hoping the book will give kids a sense of how different things were during WWII and how much was sacrificed by their great-grandparents to secure the freedom they now enjoy. Please ask your spouse to check out the free study guide at my website. As a former teacher, I wanted to make it as easy as possible for teachers to share JACQUELINE with their classes. The study guide contains everything they need.

Speechless.Fabulous. Inspirational. Thank you!

Charlaine Harris

What an excellent story, Elaine. I hope Jackie writes more books, and I know her father is very proud of her initiative.

Jackie Minniti

Hank, thanks so much for your kind words. You've made my day!

Jackie Minniti

Charlaine, after my dad read the book, he called me in tears and said,"Kid, you really did it. I'm so proud of you." It was like Christmas and my birthday all rolled into one.I guess we never get too old to want to please our parents!
