The magical world of poetry writing about four years ago. Since then her efforts developed into a real passion, and at the end of the year 2011 she started publishing her material. With two books already in print and the release of this third, much awaited addition to her already existing material, Jodde’s passion has reached a new peak of expression.
[This is] a collection of poetry written by Jodde Maree, that in many ways has me totally ever so proud to have in this day and age not only read same, but to have my very faith restored in the knowing [that the capability of] writers of poetry and poets, as once long ago, still lives with all the once brilliance in their own styles [and] that they demonstrate every time they put pen to paper their very own way of seeing deeply within all they wrote of. Jodde Maree not only has a very unique style of her own, but her poems all romantically hold hands as they make their way from one to the other in the most beautiful and the most wonderful way, with each and every one on its own being every bit as enchanting as the others. I adore her work and after almost a lifetime of my writing poetry, songwriting and book [writing] as well as being involved over all that time in many
poetic organizations and associations regarding the written word - I find her work so wonderful.
This young woman in herself is an extremely old soul and has a poetic vision I often find has long been lost to a degree, over time. Her words are all and more needed to steal hearts and take the reader upon a wonderful journey, and after all [was] said and done - I find her work is what her style of writing is and has always been about.

Jodde Maree's work is often inspirational which myself; as a reader, can easily relate to its themes. Her writing style is poignant and uses imagery well. Just as in her previous books, the author reaches out to the reader and grasps them instantly.

Jodde does not just use words on paper, but creates a vision with her rich palette. Her work is truly a sensory delight! All one's senses are utilized to enhance the reading experience while on this written journey. While reading her pieces, readers have an invitation to reflect/dig deep within their own heart and soul, recalling moments, people or places that found their way into their essence... searching times past and dreaming of moments awaiting them. She covers the entire spectrum of emotions from elation to pain - but there is always hope, hope prevails! The readers will find each of her works will have an effect on them - whether it is a smile, a tear shed or a memory brought forth.
