The Summer I Met Jack, Michelle Gable
I can’t decide if I want this to be more truth than fiction.
The life Gable imagines for Alicia Darr was so robust and real. I felt as though I knew her. The portrait her words painted was both beautiful and a little tragic.
Alicia was a worldly woman with a justifiably cynical view of reality, yet she allowed herself to be vulnerable to a man that didn’t have her best interests it needs in mind. With every page, I wanted to leap in an shake her. Surely she saw who he really was?!
I received a copy of The Summer I Met Jack from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Excuse me while I go research everything there is to know about Alicia and her relationship with JFK.
