As far back as I can remember, and even before that, the world has been infatuated with Jackie Kennedy Onassis. She first became a public icon when her husband ran for office back in the 1960's. Since then the stylish, soft spoken first lady became a celebrity. Jackie After O by Tina Cassidy focuses specifically on the period in Jackie's life after her second husband passed away. Cassidy writes an introspective view on Jackie's life. This is a fantastic book worth reading!
During this period, Jackie's immeasurable strength is put to the test and she starts doing what she loved. She was on the board to save and preserve a historical landmark, she ventured into the world of publishing and pretty much reinvented her entire life. I was more familiar with Jackie's earlier life in Camelot than I was in her later years. She used her love of reading as an avenue to be innovative in her life and work in publishing.
I enjoyed reading this biography for several reasons. First, I enjoy reading about historical icons. Jackie O definitely fits into this category. Second, it's a well written book that kept my attention the entire time. Lastly, I learned things that made me even more in awe of her. Jackie O. is a public figure that will always hold a special place in the heart of America.
