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
  • Motherhood
  • 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!!

Best book I have listen in a while! I loved reading Captivating History's story of coming to America and sharing her fly on the wall experiences as Jackie Kennedy's personal assistant. Loved it.

She was facinating lady and icon for us as well.

Pleasing profile with several particulars not formerly available about Jackie Kennedy. Fetching section with some excessive intuitions into life as a politician's wife, Kennedy family member, American sign and a lady of her time. She was an amazing female, recommended definitely.

She was queen and loving personality.

Indeed like listening to it, just finished, but will come back and listen to it again. She was an empress and she was a backstreet cat. Wouldn't want my man around her, wouldn't happen nevertheless since he's not a tycoon. She was very straight according to the author and I admit it.

Confounding and interesting.

While not an admirer of Jackie Kennedy Onassis, I do listen so much of her from my community. The wickedness and voracity alone are just astounding. Looks like the Clintons were and are working to outdo the Kennedys. All that runs through my mind is Good God.
Each American should listen this audible for general knowledge about the lady.

I enjoyed the book

I wasn’t able to off the player while listening to this book. I truly loved it. I don't know if I can trust the whole thing but it finished for some excellent listening.
My friend first listens to it and made for some good discussions with me. He actually convinced me to download this audible and it is indeed fantastic book.

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

Enjoyed this version of Jackie. The details are explained well and the author's belief that Jackie suffered with PTSD following Dallas is well-supported.

Very nice.

I have long felt that Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy was truly a First Lady. She had grace, poise, personal dignity and was a cautious, caring
individual filling a difficult role; the wife of the president of the United States. She did wonders to the White House and today it again shines as a historical masterpiece

Captivating indeed.

Well -written and narrated, personal history of Jackie's long struggle with the effects of the traumatic events of her husband's violent death. AL though Jackie was admired and misunderstood by the world, Jackie's story as told in this book sheds light on the challenges of America's celebrities.
