Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Opening with Jacqueline Kennedy's tumultuous reception in France in May, 1961, when Charles De Gaulle told President Kennedy, "I now have more confidence in your country," this generous biography points out Jacqueline Onassis's strong, vibrant personality and intellectual bent, equal to those of her first husband, John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Details of her privileged beginnings inform her later life, and her parents' separation is highlighted as changing her from an enthusiastic mischief-maker to a more reserved, private personality. Her early career as a journalist led to her final job as an editor for Doubleday, while her intellectual passions made it possible for her to adapt to a career as an informed political wife and a representative of the United States. Her love of literature and art inspired her campaign to restore the White House with traditional antiques and mementos of past presidents, her evenings with American artists, and her campaign for public funding for museums and the arts. Competent research catalogues information on Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and her development as a woman and American icon, but does not make her come alive on the page. Better proofreading on dates and relationships would have prevented mistakes such as JFK mentioning the Paris trip before it took place and Pat Kennedy Lawford being identified as JFK's sister-in-law rather than sister. 2004, Enslow Publishers, Ages 11 to 15.
