Can't-Wait Wednesday: And They Called It Camelot

Can't-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings and helps us spotlight upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating!

And They Called It Camelot
Stephanie Marie Thornton
Expected publication date: March 10, 2020
An intimate portrait of the life of Jackie O…

Few of us can claim to be the authors of our fate. Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy knows no other choice. With the eyes of the world watching, Jackie uses her effortless charm and keen intelligence to carve a place for herself among the men of history and weave a fairy tale for the American people, embodying a senator’s wife, a devoted mother, a First Lady—a queen in her own right.

But all reigns must come to an end. Once JFK travels to Dallas and the clock ticks down those thousand days of magic in Camelot, Jackie is forced to pick up the ruined fragments of her life and forge herself into a new identity that is all her own, that of an American legend. - from Goodreads
I'm fascinated by the Kennedy family, and after reading a biography of Jackie's life after JFK's death, I'm more interested than ever in books about her.

  2. My sister and mother are such Kennedy-philes. They used to creep near their compound, when we vacationed at the Cape. Hope this one gives you some new insights.

  10. I'm reading a historical fiction novel based on Grace Kelly's life and really enjoying it so I could see myself enjoying this one about the Kennedys as well. Both Kelly and Jackie O. have always fascinated me.
