For those of you that remember the Kennedy Administration, this book will thrill you. It will bring back memories of laughter and of pain in the White House. It will remind you of the great courage of John F. Kennedy and the eloquence of the First Lady, Jacqueline.
Jackie was a picture of what all women dream of, in my humble opinion. She brought a bright light to every situation. World leaders were subdued by her beauty and poise. An entire nation turned to her for the latest in fashion. She was a strong but always feminine influence to JFK. This book is a must read but I must make an important note here.
I feel almost unqualified to rate this work, not because of the content but because of the author. Every page of this book is poetry. It is written in such beautiful form. The poetic words keep you absolutely mezmorized. This new author, I'm sure could write a manual on how to dig a ditch in a way that could bring you to tears because of its' beauty.

I received this book as a review file from Red Adept Reviews. This review was originally published on Red Adept Reviews in February 2012.

Description (from Amazon.com):

Set in the historic and familiar context of what is arguably the most iconic American family, The Eternal Waltz of Jacqueline Kennedy portrays through elegant, lyrical prose a single ethereal day spent in eternity. Jackie Kennedy, together with her husband and children for one final treasured day, takes us on a literary tour-de-force, a spiritual journey that unfolds as she reflects on her life. She examines both her immeasurable joys and her personal tragedies, not only the loves and the losses that spring from the timeless universality of family, but those that arose from that turbulent, triumphant, and uniquely American era surrounding John F. Kennedy's brief presidency.

The Eternal Waltz of Jacqueline Kennedy invites readers to lose themselves once more in the nostalgic legacy of Camelot by painting a picture so compelling and so exquisite that it may very well challenge us to recast the scope and the vision we have of eternity.

Overall Rating: 4 ½ stars

Plot: 3 ½ stars

This novella is the story of one day in Eternity, told in first person singular by Jackie Kennedy. Much of it is just her musings about things she sees and thinks while going through life on that day, and the memories they bring back. Eternity takes the form of a paradisiacal (pun intended, I think) tropical isle where Jackie is reunited with JFK and her dead baby. John Jr. and Caroline remain children, as they were when JFK was assassinated. The story is a paean to family life, love, and idealism, and tries to show that even in grief there can still be joy or hope.

The idea of this book drew me in. I got 1/3 of the way through it and found myself scanning ahead. If you want to read about Jackie and her family, even if fantasy, skip this. There's very little about them. I expected more about her one day in eternity with her family that had gone before her. Her family was mentioned in passing. Now if you want to read about colors and smells, you'll be fine. How many ways can you describe the color of something? Apparently hundreds.
