From the Heart - A Journey of Love is a collection of 56 poems, 14 haikus and various sayings by the Jordanian-American author and Huffington Post Passionista, Hadel S. Ma'ayeh. Haunting and timeless, innovative and jazzy, exquisitely balanced, with the ability to invade one's soul, Ma'ayeh's poetic voice paints an extraordinarily realistic picture of life in our postmodern age. 

The sensory words and emotions she uses effectively transport the reader to the settings described. The composition of the poems is sufficiently complex to provoke the reader into filling the blanks with their imagination, while being left wanting more.

"Engaging and innovative, displaying simplistic elegance, Ma'ayeh's words capture the essence of a world rich in subtle beauty."

- Richard Bassett


"Hadel's poetry invites us to celebrate the invisible thread that links us to our inner nature. I particularly enjoyed the cadence of her poetic voice as she painted each mental picture."

- Jazz Baker


"Haunting, timeless . . . the imagery Hadel employs invades your soul." 

- Adan K. Pope
