What does it mean to be a Kennedy? If ever three women would be challenged and changed by marriage into a family, it would be Jacqueline Bouvier, Ethel Skakel, and Joan Bennett. None of these radiant brides could have ever been prepared for the fame, the family, and tragedies that would spring from their lives. As they struggled to cope with their husbands' infidelities, the harsh glare of the media, and the assassinations of John and Robert Kennedy, these women would learn what it meant to be sisters, reaching out to one another with comfort and consolation. But these sisters would also compete with one another, argue, and find themselves estranged, sometimes for years. Based on extensive research, interviews, and never-before-published oral histories from the JFK and LBJ Libraries, this groundbreaking biography presents a balanced, affectionate, and fascinating portrayal of three extraordinary women - and shows us their courage, passion, and will to be a family.
