Shed attended the same exclusive girls school as Jackie Bouvier, now installed in the White House as the first lady. Which is also where Mimi found herself, as an 18-year-old intern. JFKs White House was a place for which she wasnot remotely prepared, dominated by the charismatic & sexually rapacious figure of the president.

Within fou days, theyd started a relationship.There are several extraordinary things about Mimis story. One is that shed evaded notice from any of the biographers of JFK & other chroniclers of the heady days & sexual shenanigans of Camelot. Only by chance did a reporter in 2006 follow up a mention of her name in a JFK book, & doorstep her--a married NY grandmother--to find out whether she was the Mimi Beardsely mentioned in a passing reference.

This is all the more surprising given the length of the affair--18 months--& the fact that it was ended only by his death.Mimi Beardsley Alford has decided, after decades of silence & reflection, to tell her story. This is not just a memoir of a young woman of her generation & class coming of age in the 60s, & her relationship with JFK.

She also examines the significance it had in her life & relationships since, why she chose to be silent for so long & why she feels this is the time to speak out.
