America’s queen: the life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (Bradford, Sarah)(2000, hardcover)

Regular price $15.00

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was a twentieth-century icon and remains so today. She and her husband, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the thirty-fifth President of the United States, were truly America’s golden couple. From the moment she transformed the White House into an American Versailles until her early death in 1994, Jackie was the most celebrated woman in the world; the epitome of Grace and style. But beyond the wealth and glamour she experienced both public and private tragedy and bore deep insecurities. In the words of her friend Edna O’Brien, she led ‘a jewelled life but with a dark river running through it’.
