With extraordinary skill and great sensitivity, Barbara Leaming explores the seemingly magical world of Jackie’s youth, her fairy-tale marriage to a wealthy and handsome Senator and Presidential candidate and her astonishing transformation into a deft political wife and unique First Lady. This is the first book to document Jackie’s brutal, lonely and valiant thirty-one-year struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). While the life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis has been examined and scrutinized countless times, it is only now that we can truly discover the woman behind the facade, the untold story of this iconic woman.
