5 Star REVIEW~"PONEASEQUA: The Goddess Of The Waters" By Stephanie Duckworth-Elliot

Ranked on Amazon As The Most Helpful Favorable Review!


Stephanie Duckworth-Elliot created a great adventure in a compelling
journey through an incredible story portrayed in the life of McKenzie
Jones, who was challenged by her teacher to present the history of her
Native American culture in front of the entire class. She is a proud,
strong young woman, who believes in her Wampanoag heritage, and
her upbringing shines light into her heart. Although she works hard
trying to convince classmates of the history, and knowledge of her
roots, can she prepare decades of history in one weekend? Does her
grandfather help her to absorb the history and wisdom of the ancient
Wampanoag culture, and is she confident to stand tall with her
presentation? Will she remember to present the morals and values of
a proud culture, while removing misconceptions that exist, or will she
face humiliation, and disciplinary action? I highly recommend this
novel to young adults, and to anyone interested in the history of the
Native American culture. I also recommend this book to young women,
who wish to build their self-esteem and confidence by following the
strength, and spirit of McKenzie. The author painted a portrait of
vivid imagery, with true to life characters in a breathtaking story. In the
end, does McKenzie find the final peace that she has been searching
for? Stephanie Duckworth-Elliot penned a setting where the legends
told from McKenzie's grandfather can be softly heard in the background
as warrior's dance to the beating of drums, turning the plot into a
Masterpiece. Follow McKenzie to the farm, where she tended chores
with the light of her life, her grandfather. Listen carefully to his wondrous storytelling as the bond between him, and McKenzie becomes
stronger. Did McKenzie's grandfather help McKenzie to grow in spirit,
while claiming her Wampanoag identity? "PONEASEQUA: The Goddess
Of The Waters" is as entertaining as THE HORSE WHISPERER, and as
inspiring as Walt Disney's TUCK EVERLASTING.
