    A differnt insight of Jack Kennedy

    “Alicia made a grand life for herself out of a very questionable start, but she could be a handful, high maintenance.” “Did JFK and Alicia Corning Clark have a secret love child? The article that then turn into Michelle Gable’s newest novel – The Summer I Met Jack. Prior to reading this book, I didn’t know much about this particular generation of Kennedy’s besides my limited impression of a rich, powerful large family with many known reports of infidelity, and accusations of wrong doings. (I was much more interested in JFK, Jr, Caroline and Maria Shriver generations. I actually met JFK Jr while working at the Dept of Justice in Washington, DC. Beyond handsome and left a down to earth impression.) So, what limited knowledge I had of the 1950’s Kennedy’s, I can certainly see the events written in The Summer I Met Jack as plausible. Gable has written a fictionalize story of the real-life love affair of Alicia Corning Clark and then-congressman Jack Kennedy (pre-President JFK days). This is a fantastic novel that will keep you thinking about the main characters long after you finish it. It has a political spin that feels current today though it’s set in the 1950’s. The characters feel very real and like I was right there with Jack and Alicia in the 1950s as I was reading. I have a beautiful home,” she said. “And more money than I could ever spend. But before all of this, there was one year in Hyannisport, when, for one bright shining moment, I had it all.” Alicia was a Polish Jew, a displaced person from the war who emigrated to the United States in 1950. She had many names over the years, led a complex life, often finding herself drawn back to Jack Kennedy, making the same mistakes over and over. “I’ll make my way, somehow. Surviving is what I do best.” All quotes and headlines included in this novel were taken from actual publications. It is evident that Gable completed tons of research to weave facts into this fictional tale. I truly enjoyed this story, and I for one have spent too much time on my computer learning about the life of Alicia and the older generation of Kennedy’s. Well done! Thank you St. Martin’s Press via Netgalley for the review copy

    The Summer I Met Jack

    The Summer I Met Jack by Michelle Gable is fiction mixed with facts. Ms Gable gives us an interesting look at how life may have been at the Kennedy's Hyannis Port summer home in the early 1950's and brings the scenes to life. The Summer I Met Jack is fascinating and makes the reader wonder what if..... I was given an early copy to review.
