  • Historical Fiction Jackie & Maria

    On the 12th of September in 1953, Jacqueline Lee Bouvier married John F. Kennedy, she was beautiful, poised and a perfect choice to be a politician’s wife and eventually became the first lady of America’s 35th president. Being married to Jack wasn’t easy, Jackie had to at the start married life living with her in laws, she lost two babies, put up with his infidelity and Jack was a very busy man. On the 22nd of November 1963 in Dallas Texas the couple where traveling in a convertible when Jack was assassinated. Jackie was now a widow with two young children and been through a very traumatic experience. Maria Callas was a famous Greek Opera singer, considered one of the best Soprano’s ever, she was married to Battista Meneghini and she had issues with people she loved using her talent to make money. The one thing in the world she wanted was to have a baby and her husband’s was reluctant to start a family. She met and fell in love with one of the world’s richest shipping entrepreneurs Aristotle Onassis; they had a turbulent relationship for years and never married. Jackie Kennedy was invited to go sailing on Ari’s yacht, she was lonely, he made her feel safe, he was rich, powerful and unlike other women she wouldn’t sleep with him unless she had a ring on her finger, they married and it broke Maria’s heart. While reading The Second Marriage you notice Maria and Jackie had a lot in common they were both very venerable, suffered the loss of babies and were treated badly by men they loved. I think Ari, Jackie and Maria’s stories prove money can’t buy you happiness; three people whose lives were linked together due to mistakes made in relationships, love and they all experienced loss and tragedy in their lives. Gill Paul’s books never disappoint The Second Marriage is well written, you can tell Gill did very through research, I didn’t know who Maria Callas was prior to reading this book, it’s an interesting story and five stars from me.

  • The Second Marriage

    The story of two famous women of their era Jackie Kennedy and Maria Callas and their relationship with shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis. This book was so interesting...such a well told story...fiction not biographies...that I read it for hours on end. A fantastic read and yet another great offering from an author who seems to get better with each book. Really recommend this for readers who like a story about real people.
