Summary
  • Presents a look into the private lives and passions of three women in the Kennedy family
  • "If ever three women would be changed, and challenged, by their marriages, they would be Jacqueline Bouvier, Ethel Skakel, and Joan Bennett. None of them, as radiant brides, could have been prepared for the fame, tragedies, and difficult lives awaiting them. As they struggled to cope with their husbands' infidelities and scandals, the assassinations of Jack and Bobby Kennedy, and the harsh glare of constant media attention, they would become like sisters, reaching out to one another with comfort and consolation. But, like sisters, they would also compete with one another, argue, and become estranged, sometimes for years." "Now, from J. Randy Taraborrelli, comes a biography that for the first time truly captures their special sisterhood. Jackie, Ethel, Joan carefully separates fact from innuendo and explores the women's complex relationships with one another, as well as with the ambitious, raucous, and powerful Kennedy clan that nearly devoured them all."--BOOK JACKET
