In 1964 Kathy McKeon was just 19 years old and newly arrived from Ireland when she was hired as the personal assistant to former first lady Jackie Kennedy. The next 13 years of her life were spent in Jackie's service, during which Kathy not only played a crucial role in raising young Caroline and John Jr. but also had a front-row seat to some of the 20th century's most significant events.

This may be one of the best books written about Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. This is not a salacious tell-all, this is a glimpse into what normal everyday life was like with her. It really is a must read. After this, you realize just what a normal human being she was who had endured great tragedy and emerged with a kind yet guarded heart. Enjoyed this book so very much.

Have enjoyed watching Ms. Kelly for years. Not only is she a fair and objective journalist she honestly seems to be a good human being too.

I found myself thinking what could I do to settle for more too. Like Ms. Kelly, I was bullied mercilessly in 7th grade as well and also dealt with the blow of my father dying with our last and final encounter not being good. In fact, it was heartbreaking and has affected my life in a very bad way. I've lived with that regret for years and regretted it every day of my life. This book made me feel less alone in the similar circumstances we have gone through.

This book is a must read for anyone wondering why they can't change their life and why the SHOULD change their life. It also gives you insight to the Trump situation and what really happened and what she endured. There is so much more to the story than what people think they know. You just might find the trig behind all the media hoopla.

I enjoyed this book immensely and highly recommend it as it comes straight from the heart. Ms. Kelly is a true professional and one of the best journalists on television. The fact that we really don't know what her politics are is a testament to that fact.
