Publisher's Summary

The story of a political and personal friendship unlike any other.

When they first met at Harvard in 1946, young Kenny O’Donnell and Bobby Kennedy could not have imagined where their lives would take them. The friendship they built saw them through some of the most pivotal moments of the twentieth century - including Robert Kennedy’s tenure as attorney general and O’Donnell’s time spent as John F. Kennedy’s chief of staff - and only ended with RFK’s tragic death.

With full access to the Kennedy family archives, Helen O’Donnell, daughter of Kenneth, brings a history-making friendship to life for future generations.

    "Feeling melancholy"

    I'm so glad I listened to this book even though it leaves me sad. Sad for the O'Donnell family and sad for our country. I had just turned 12 when President Kennedy was assassinated and 16 1/2 when Senator Robert Kennedy was assassinated, and I was hurt just like everyone else. I was young then and only realized years later what a profound loss we all shared when these great men were snatched away from us. This book helps me understand more about the man, Kenneth O'Donnell, who loved, trusted, and was devoted to these two Kennedy brothers until the end. Thank you Helen O'Donnell for sharing this book with us.
