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 captures the special sisterhood of three extraordinary women. Book jacket.

Very interesting to hear about the point of view of the Kennedy women. So much has been said about their husbands, it was great for once to read how they truly felt during that historic times.

This was an excellent book, detailing events and tragedy surrounding the Kennedys during their political successes. The story was written in such a way you were engaged in the characters and though you may have not agreed or even related to some of their behaviour you still felt empathy and sadness when the women faced tragedy or were treated badly. It's a nice perspective of the wives and excellent for a summer read even if you don't have a vacation house to escape to like a Kennedy.
