In 1953, the young Senator Kennedy, the most sought-after bachelor in the nation’s capitol, began to be seen around town with Jacqueline Bouvier, a shy 23-year-old beauty who was the belle of Manhattan, Easthampton and Newport. Sally Bedell Smith and David Nasaw offer comments on what drew the dazzling couple together, and reveal the warning that Jackie received shortly before she married JFK.
