I loved this book, great personal family photos!
The only thing I did not like about Happy Times was the book ended too fast. Lee Radziwell's impact on Camelot has been given short shrift. The book has wonderful, new photos of the family and is written in very personable manner. The photos of Radziwell's beautiful interiors are a feast for the eye. I usually don't buy picture books but this one is worth it -- for Jacqueline Kennedy fans. I maintain the book is an appetiser and teaser. I pray the author will come forward with a more substantial story of her life and times with the Kennedy family as well as her own life -- one filled with adversity as well as pleasure.
I bought this book because I am a huge fan of the Kennedys . This book makes one feel as if they were actually there! It is so refreshing just to remember the 'happy times', and not the scandal and tragedy.
I bought this at Barnes & Noble and am going to give it to a friend of mine who is a fan of the Kennedy's. It's just like a personal scrapbook - amazing photos - never seen before. There are charming drawings by Lee Radziwill from when she was young - it's sweet. Not a major 'book' per se but it captures the spirit of the moment. It's terribly poignant - such an iconic family - so much tragedy - but here are some delightful images that are best remembered.
