Jacqueline’s first book, Only 60+ You Go Girl, is a prelude to the subject she writes about in her nine subsequent books.
Available on Amazon.com, in both paperback and Kindle editions.
Francesca is a woman whose life had always been full of worry and fear. Her pessimistic lifestyle had shunned all her childhood friends throughout her young and teenage years. Her fears and concerns had created a marriage that she didn’t fully enjoy. Her husband, Larry, was her complete opposite. He loved life to the fullest and wanted the same for Francesca. Oddly his enthusiasm and self-esteem were the qualities that attracted her.
After Larry’s sudden death, she makes a change and moves into a condo. While living there she comes upon a garden, which no one seems to realize is present. She experiences a strange encounter with a young girl, who turns her life around for the better and one who she eventually discovers was distantly related to her.
A story of faith, trust, encouragement and strong determination to find oneself through innocent eyes.
