4.5 StarsFrom my book review blog Rundpinne. ....Dear Mrs. Kennedy by Jay Mulvaney and Paul De Angelis takes the reader back to 1964 and the world’s outpouring of love to the Kennedy family after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. In an emotional and poignant manner, the authors select from telegrams, and notes from over a million people from all classes and cultures from around the world that were sent to Mrs.
Jacqueline Kennedy in 1964. Rather than merely selecting several letters to allow the readers to get a sense of what the world felt, the authors went a step further to reconstruct those four horrific days in Jacqueline Kennedy’s life and the months following through various letters ranging from dignitaries to average citizens. Dear Mrs. Kennedy is a beautiful, historic treasure, a time capsule in book form of how the world was in the days following President John F.
Kennedy’s assassination touching on poignant memories, historic moments, and a tremendous outpouring of grief, shock and support. I would recommend Dear Mrs. Kennedy to anyone who enjoys historical books.
