Imani Jade Powers narrates this exploration of the early life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, long before she was known as the wife of two famous men. As the WASHINGTON TIMES-HERALD's "Inquiring Camera Girl," young Jacqueline Bouvier turned an ignored part of the paper into something special while maintaining a delicate balance of debutante, daughter of divorce, and educated woman who is pushed into an unwanted marriage. Powers takes listeners through Bouvier's less-than-idyllic childhood with a sympathetic narration style that captures the complex experiences and emotions of a young woman at odds with her time. Her narration skillfully mimics Bouvier's speaking style when sharing pieces written directly by her, capturing listeners' emotions without making the performance sound over the top.
