Jackie After O: One Remarkable Year When Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Defied Expectations and Rediscovered Her Dreams Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Defined in the public eye by her two high-profile marriages, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis faced a personal crossroads on the eve of 1975. Her relationship with Aristotle Onassis was crumbling while his health was rapidly declining. Her children were nearing adulthood, soon to leave her with an empty nest. Both death and scandal were about to strike yet again. But 1975 would also be a time of extraordinary growth and personal renaissance for Jackie, the year in which she reinvented herself and rediscovered talents and passions she had set aside for her roles as wife and mother.

Unearthing new information from archives and original interviews, acclaimed author and journalist Tina Cassidy explores this prolific yet incredibly daunting year in the life of Jacqueline Onassis, revealing intimate stories about Jackie's projects and interests. Jackie After O is an exciting and original portrayal of the life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

Synopsis:

Former Boston Globe reporter Tina Cassidy delivers a remarkable account of one year in the life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Americas favorite first lady and an international icon. 1975 was a year of monumental changes for Jackie: it was the year she lost her second husband, shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, saved one of New York Citys cultural landmarks at Grand Central Station, and found her true calling—not as a powerful mans wife or the mother of future leaders, but as a woman of the workforce with a keen mind and a dedication to excellence. Readers of Christopher Andersens Jackie After Jack and Pamela Clarke Keoghs Jackie Style will find no better look at the intimate world of Americas Queen of Camelot than Tina Cassidys Jackie After O.
