Found this book in the library and decided to borrow it since I have a thing for the Kennedys and most of all RFK. I didn't have high expectations for the book. It looks a bit sordid and it felt a bit sordid to read. Did Jackie and Bobby have an affair? Many people seem to think that they did. It was like a secret everyone knew, but no one spoke about in the public. Nowadays it would be impossible to keep an affair like that a secret, but in the 60s it was probably a lot easier.

In a way a feel sorry for Jackie, I don't think many people knew her. Men wanted to sleep with her, women wanted to be her and she is often portrayed as a greedy ambitious woman, very much so in this book. And perhaps she was precisely so. Who knows?

Perhaps she and Bobby had an affair. Perhaps he was the love of her life. It's easy to write a book about two people that are both dead since they can't confirm or deny anything.

The author of 'A Woman Named Jackie' tells the untold story of brother and sister in law, Bobby Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy Onassis. Heymann addresses many pressing rumors about the relationship of Bobby and Jackie during and after JFK's run in office. With intimate photographs and anecdotes, clarity is shared through first person accounts and interviews. ( )

Full of gossipy tidbits... this book is shocking, yearningly romantic and tons of fun.
