Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis is regarded as one of the most influential women of all time. Her sense of polished and modern fashion, her timeless beauty, her strength and her wisdom have been admired for years. There was a lot more to Jackie and this book covers it.
I adored this book! I, like everyone, have always admired Jackie Kennedy Onassis. When I purchased this book I expected a behind the scenes look at her political life but it covers so much more than that.
Jackie was a debutante and a journalist before she became a Kennedy. She was accomplished in her own right. While a Kennedy, as First Lady, she was catapulted to fame by her taste in clothing and her mannerisms. After the unfortunate death of her husband, her strength that she displayed to the nation guided them. Behind closed doors, literally, Jackie battled crippling depression and anxiety for years.
Barbara Leaming does an incredible job honoring Jackie in her book. She takes the legend and shows her extraordinary humanity making Jackie feel like a friend.
If you are a fan of Jackie, this is a must read!
