Another attempt to cash in on JFK Jr. Nothing we didn't already know.

This memoir about JFK Jr written by his assistant at George magazine is a refreshing look into the lives of two people living a fairy tale. Rose Marie and John and his wife Carolyn became friends as well as employer and employee, and we are given a glimpse into that inner sanctum of friendship and easy banter that existed among the three. It is truly a lovely and poignant read. By the way, Rose Marie Terenzio will be talking about her book at the Morris Park library on August 23 at 2:30 pm.

A great book by Rosemarie Terenzio. Her personal friendship with John Kennedy was full of interests, humour, love on both sides.
But I refer to Michael Berman's book to get the drift of the true Carolyn. I believe Ms. Terenzio just kept this out of her book and just concentrated on the work environment friend's of John.

The author portrays JFK Jr. very negatively. And Carolyn Bessette very positively. Not worth a read.
