it was amazing

Rarely do I read a book I hate to finish! How will I find another good book like this to read? Thank you Mr. Hill for fleshing out Jackie Kennedy, for making her so real to me and not just a celebrity. I relived those terrible final days of President Kennedy and cried again as I read the final chapters of this richly detailed book. To see the Kennedys and especially Mrs. Kennedy from the eyes of her Secret Service protector was a joy to experience. I gained such insight into what being a Secret Service man must be like and also what the President's wife was really like. This is indeed a most remarkable book and I loved every word of it. Thank you again Clint Hill for this refreshing, beautiful book about one of the world's most amazing and private women. Too bad you weren't with her while she was with Onassis! We will never know what she was thinking!
