This is a well-written book that held my interest so deeply, I read it in 2 nights. Chock-full of eye-opening facts about Ms. Bouvier's childhood that really captivated me. Written by Ms. Bouvier's cousin, who had first-hand knowledge of this world renowned woman, really held my attention. A must-have book for any curiosity-minded person (and who isn't?) about the enigmatic Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onasis! I only wish it would have been longer (it ends at Ms. Bouvier's marriage to Senator John F. Kennedy).
