Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, one of America's most cherished female icons, is our narrator and heroine in this novel which gives us a hypothetical yet fascinating look into her mysterious interior life after JFK's death. Starting from the somber and surreal days immediately following John F. Kennedy's death, Eve Pollard enters the mind of Jackie Kennedy Onassis. With exquisite detail and historical facts, anyone and everyone fascinated by the glamorous widow will be entranced by the events that unfold as Jackie gathers herself up and moves on. In this juicy, yet tactful, hypothetical look into her life, Pollard attempts to uncover the private life and thoughts of Jackie. Every issue is addressed, including Jackie's suspicions regarding JFK's philandering, her relationship with Marilyn Monroe, her reentry into New York society with her less than ideal (according to the public) new husband Aristotle Onassis, and her life as a mother. Additionally adding to the intrigue, Pollard writes about Jackie's covert operation with Peter Lawford as a spy in Prague while on a trip abroad with her then senator husband.
Having written one of the first biographies on Jackie, Pollard has a wealth of information on the adored former First Lady and uses it to create a captivating and realistic story. Jackie O is a beloved American figure and "The Widow" will attract her admirers as well as readers looking for a strong heroine and smart novel.
