This book is also a reminder that there were plenty of people in Dallas who came forward and told their stories about that day in November, knowing that it was the right thing to do. Perhaps one day America will have the courage and face the fact that Johnson took office in a coup d'etat with the suppoert of high government officials.
In the night of December 31, 1963, just 6 weeks after the JFK assassination, Madeleine asked Lyndon Johnson:
"Lyndon, you know that a lot of people believe you had something to do with President Kennedy's assassination."
He shot up out of bed and began pacing and waving his arms screaming like a madman. I was scared!
"That's bull___, Madeleine Brown!" he yelled. "Don't tell me you believe that ____!"
"Of course not." I answered meekly, trying to cool his temper.
"It was Texas oil and those %$%& renegade intelligence bastards in Washington." [said Lyndon Johnson, the new president.] [Texas in the Morning, p. 189] [LBJ told this to Madeleine on 1/1/64 in the locally famous Driskill Hotel, Austin, TX in room #254. They spent New Year's Eve `64 together here (12/31/63). Room #254 was the room that LBJ used to have rendevous' with his girlfriends - today it is known as the LBJ Room, and rents for $600-1,000/night as a Presidential suite at the Driskell; located on the Mezzanine Level.]
What Lyndon Johnson did not tell Madeleine was that Texas Oil (read H.L. Hunt, Clint Murchison, Sr) and the CIA (especially the Gen Ed Lansdale, Operation 40/Operation Mongoose crowd) were murdering John Kennedy with the full knowledge, approval and participation of VP Lyndon Johnson.Read more ›
Also, from this book I learned some Dallas history, and about some of the leaders of Dallas (right wingers, John Birchers, rich oil men, etc.).
People from JFK assassination literature appear in the book from time to time - Oswald, Jack Ruby, Mac Wallace, Billie Sol Estes, and others - and Madeline provides insights about them.
Also, Madeline provides insights into H.L. Hunt, Walter Jenkins, and others around LBJ.
After LBJ was dead, his son by Madeline (Steven) sued Lady Bird for his inheritance. The Navy came after him and possibly killed him.
Madeline was brave to write this book.
Readable, interesting, and with good information.

Wonderful book and very believable, but does contain some explicit sexual situations.Published 17 months ago by D. Gentry
My husband said it was a good book, but it was more of a love story than historical. But he liked it just the same.Published on April 20, 2014 by R. THORNE

It was the very heartfelt, although biased, real life story of being the mistress of LBJ for 20 years. However, there is a lot of profanity. Read morePublished on November 14, 2013 by Linda S.
No JFK researcher should overlook this book. It implicates
LBJ in the assassination without doubt, like the admissions and statements
