Review: JACQUELINE by Jackie Minniti
I can't imagine that too many human stories came out of the Second World War with happy endings. Certainly I never heard of any from my parent who served. JACQUELINE is one of those rare eventually happy tales, and the author, Jackie Minniti, based it on the recollections of her father, an active participant. In the process, Ms. Minniti, a retired teacher of reading, weaves a tale that awakens World War II for young readers, who will come to comprehend some of the issues, and much of the emotions, of that tragic historical period. They will learn also that whenever possible, hope and the human spirit triumph.
Kudos to author Jackie Minitti for bringing this story to life.
