And They Called It Camelot (2020)
Stephanie Marie Thornton
"Even if you think you know the story of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, you're in for rare behind-the-scenes look at the former First Lady's life.

Such an ambitious undertaking and Thornton not only pulls it off, she hits it out of the park. This book is nothing short of magical."
