Trees & Truths by Anntonette Jackson is a poetry compilation that takes readers on a delightful journey through nature, exploring lessons of growth, self-assurance, and acceptance. Whether it’s society’s role or manufactured lies that are hindering our growth toward self-acceptance and self-assurance, Jackson has addressed all the issues that we might be facing in our journey toward advancement - both mental and emotional. Inspired by her walks through the trees, Jackson presents the idea that our discovery of the truths and knowledge of nature plays an integral part in our personal development and consciousness of who we are, and it's only when we accept nature and society as a whole that we expand our horizons and create a positive outlook in life.

Anntonette Jackson is a Canadian poet and author who has been writing poetry since early adulthood. In the beginning, most of her work was focused on romantic poetry, but now she has grown to juggle themes of raw human emotions in all their vulnerable glory, nature, and facing the great truths in life. The poet’s ability to create a connection between trees and the human ability to heal and grow will present a thought-provoking picture in the minds of readers.

Jackson uses personification and strong imagery in her poetry, and these themes are also found in her previous works, including Earth miSUNderstood the Moon and A Heart Minds the Soul. A perfect read for those who enjoy reading about enlightening ideas, concepts, and well-crafted themes. This collection is resonant and brilliantly composed and a delightful reading experience for poetry lovers.
