Publisher's Summary

Explore the fascinating life of Jackie Kennedy!
Without a doubt, the name Jacqueline Kennedy draws multiple thoughts to mind. She is, perhaps, most well-known for her service as the first lady of the United States when her husband, John F. Kennedy, took office as the president, and for her role in restoring the White House. Then, of course, other people remember Jackie for her role in the fashion industry, particularly her pink Chanel suit and matching pillbox hat, which became symbols of her husband's assassination. Jackie is so renowned and beloved that she ranks as one of the most popular first ladies. In fact, Jacqueline was named, in 1999, in Gallup's list of Most Admired Men and Women in 20th century America. While she made major impacts on the White House, Jackie was much more than her title of first lady.
Some of the topics covered in this audiobook include:

Childhood and early education
College and early career
The relationship with John F. Kennedy
Campaign for presidency
First lady
The Kennedy assassination
Life following the assassination
Ongoing iconic figure
And a great deal more that you don't want to miss!

Loved this book. Love the Kennedys

Wonderful to read about the inside of the Kennedys lives. Thank you for sharing your memories. I loved this book - so interesting to read of her abject poverty in Ireland and her exciting life serving Madam Kennedy Onassis. She is a gifted storyteller and I would love to read another memoir by this author!!

Bravo Personality.

What a wonderful audile. It is a must for all to enjoy. I’m so delighted the author shared part of her life and the life of her mother with the public. I hope her message is understood and others will encourage their children to learn and live a comprehensive life.

Very informative.

Wondered about many things after the President's killing. Was surprised at the fear Mrs. Kennedy had for herself and her children.

The book answered many questions I had.
