Jacqueline Kennedy: First Lady In Courage
All her life, Jacqueline Kennedy did things her way, often against the grain of conventional wisdom and public expectation. But she broke her many molds with disciplined restraint and judgment. And she won her own place in America’s heart as the attractive accomplished wife of President John F.

It was to be a life of triumph, repeated tragedy, and a much personal grace under fire as she fought to preserve the ideals and the legacy so vital to her, her children, and her country. Here’s her story, briefly told.
