'Nellie Connally was in the car that morning with her husband, Texas governor John Connally. Jacqueline Kennedy and President John F. Kennedy sat behind her in the backseat. In fact, Nellie was talking to the president when the first shot rang out.' 'Only hours before, Nellie, a graceful presence and consummate hostess, had arrived at Love Field, Dallas, ready to show off Texas to the young president and his dazzling wife. Instead, Nellie witnessed a seminal moment of American history and then faced a test of unimaginable resolve.' 'Ten days after the assassination, Nellie wrote down notes so that her future grandchildren would know what happened to the Connallys on November 22, 1963. Inspired by these notes and dedicated to sharing the truth of that horrible day, Nellie has gone back in time and fleshed out the thoughts and feelings she had recorded and clung to so privately, almost secretly.' 'She describes the two-day swing through San Antonio, Houston, Fort Worth, and Dallas; the joy and relief in seeing the people of Texas embrace the president and Jackie; the anticipation of the next successful stop; the visions of a future robust with the promise of great times coming. Then the minute-to-minute, hour-by-hour tragedy at Dealey Plaza.'--BOOK JACKET.
