)-- All her life, Jacqueline Kennedy did things her way, often contradicting conventional wisdom and public expectation. But she also demonstrated considerable restraint and judgment. She won her place in America’s heart as the wife of President John F. Kennedy, then sealed her place in history as the widow who showed a stunned nation how to mourn his assassination, and finally as a woman in her own right, who lived the life she wanted and made a career that won honors and respect. It was to be a life of triumph, repeated tragedy, and much personal grace under fire as she fought to preserve the ideals and the legacy so vital to her, her children, and her country. Here is her story.
Jacqueline Kennedy, a Kindle Single, is available on Amazon.com.
