The Summer I Met Jack

New York Times bestselling author imagines the affair between JFK and Alicia Corning Clark - and the child they may have had.Based on a real story - in 1950, a young, beautiful Polish refugee arrives in Hyannisport, Massachusetts to work as a maid for one of the wealthiest families in America. Alicia is at once dazzled by the large and charismatic family, in particular the oldest son, a rising politician named Jack. Alicia and Jack are soon engaged, but his domineering father forbids the marriage. And so, Alicia trades Hyannisport for Hollywood, and eventually Rome. She dates famous actors and athletes and royalty, including Gary Cooper, Kirk Douglas, and Katharine Hepburn, all the while staying close with Jack. A decade after they meet, on the eve of Jacks inauguration as the thirty-fifth President of the United States, the two must confront what they mean to each other. The Summer I Met Jack is based on the fascinating real life of Alicia Corning Clark, a woman who J. Edgar Hoover insisted was paid by the Kennedys to keep quiet, not only about her romance with Jack Kennedy, but also a baby they may have had together....

  • Susan

    Very excited with this new book by Michelle Gable. The story of Alicia Darr was extremely interesting and written in a style that kept me reading.

    “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 Dep

    4.5 The unexpected pleasure of going into a book blind is so rewarding. The Summer I Met Jack is pure pleasure as I’m whisked away to the 1950’s. The story shifts from the 1950’s to present day which kept me intrigued and reading on to find out how the two intersect.

    Barbara Kopczysnka is an immigrant from Poland. She changes her name to Alicia Darr to assimilate and appear more American. She soon finds employment at the house of the Kennedy’s as a maid. Yes, ‘the’ Kennedy’s. She is also selling

    First I want to congratulate the author on the extensive amount of research she did to bring this novel to life. As a reader I appreciate it.

    Secondly this novel was great. The Kennedy family has always been a family with a mysterious hold on the American people. In an era where handsome faces and beautiful women entertained us money above all talked. The Kennedys are nasty people!

    I loved Alicia. She was a person who had to lie to survive. And she did so gracefully and advantageously. It saddene

    Great piece of historical fiction about the Kennedy clan. I enjoyed it!

  • Jennifer

    Whatever your political leanings, you don't need to be a democrat or a republican to know what love feels like. So don't be afraid that this book is just another look at the famous JFK and his affairs. It's so much more and honestly, it left me quite sad but I'm still so happy to have experienced the world through the eyes of Alicia Corning Clark.

    I am familiar with JFK's reputation, but I have never delved into the background of his family. About 4 chapters into The Summer I Met Jack, I went to

    THE SUMMER I MET JACK is my fourth book and I'm still recovering from writing it!

    Yes, it is that Jack, and yes, it's based on a true story. The wealthy Alicia Corning Clark died in New York, in 2016, at the stated age of 79 but she lied about her age constantly and apparently even in death. Her estate and wills were in a state of bedlam so attorneys tried to track down possible heirs. She didn't have any children...or did she?

    Alicia, a Jewish refugee from Poland, had a romanc
