Overview

Theirs was one of the great love stories of our time. Indeed, John Fitzgerald Kennedy and his wife, Jacqueline Lee Bouvier, captured and have held the world's imagination as perhaps no other husband and wife in modern history. Yet despite the billions of words that have been written about this most golden of couples, the true nature of their relationship has been veiled in mystery and mystique. Until now. With stunning information from important sources, some of whom were sworn to secrecy until Jackie's death in May 1994, and previously sealed archival material, international best-selling author Christopher Andersen examines their unique partnership and the courage, grace, and humor that defined it. In the manner of Joseph Lash's insightful Eleanor and Franklin, Jack and Jackie is packed with startling revelations about the secrets and events that shaped their lives, including never-before-known details of their courtship, and the other men Jackie almost married; the world-famous women whose romances with JFK have previously been unreported, including Audrey Hepburn; the shocking truth about Jack's medical condition, and how, as with FDR, the disturbing truth was concealed from the press and the public; and their concerns about infertility, and Jackie's troubled pregnancies; the way Caroline and John Jr. transformed their lives - and the touching story of how the death of their infant son Patrick brought Jack and Jackie closer than they had ever been, only months before Dallas.

Theirs was one of the great love stories of our time. Indeed, John F. Kennedy and his wife, Jacqueline Lee Bouvier, captured and have held the world's imagination as perhaps no other husband and wife in modern history.More than just the definitive portrait of their marriage, this is a fairy tale, a stirring saga, and a love story.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Andersen, author of unauthorized biographies of Madonna and Michael Jackson, here chronicles the relationship between Jacqueline Bouvier and John F. Kennedy. He starts with brief chapters on the early forces that impinged on their later life together: in his case, his father's money, competitiveness, and philandering; in hers, her mother's coldness, her father's philandering, and her need for money. The book is based on many interviews, though those closest to the Kennedys have kept mum. Despite JFK's supposedly juicy affairs, there are few lurid details (except for a couple about father Joe), and Andersen's is a surprisingly sympathetic view of the two principals (though he uses lots of anecdotes from the venomously anti-Kennedy writer Gore Vidal). This is good gossip, but not an essential purchase; expect demand, however, given the frenzy that accompanied the Jackie O auction.Francine Fialkoff, "Library Journal"
