PRAISE

Blurbs

“Jacqueline Trimble’s AMERICAN HAPPINESS is an amazing read.  Once I started these poems, once I had finished the first poem about her father, I could not stop    reading but continued devouring them until I had finished them all.  These poems  are strong, passionate, well crafted. “
