After the assassination millions of people, from around the world, sent letters of sympathy and condolence to Jacqueline Kennedy. Many are from famous people: actors and politicians and foreign dignitaries. Most are from every day Americans; people who had no connection to this man, other than respect for his office and shock and grief at his violent death.
After their initial reading, these letters remained largely untouched in storage and many are now being published and seen by the public for the first time. These letters are interspersed with commentary and explanations about the time and offer a compelling, poignant glimpse into a tragic period of American history.
I noticed some editing issues and towards the end it got a bit repetitive, but I still found it fascinating, although not very uplifting. I think JFK fans will enjoy it.

This is a wonderful book. I actually do not remember when JFK was tragically and horrifyingly killed. The letters can be read a few at a time or many in a row. Read morePublished on February 22, 2011 by lej
