About This Book:

Title: Once upon a Secret: My Affair With President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath


In 1962 Mimi (Beardsley) Alford, a naïve 19-year-old, arrived in the nation's capital to begin an internship in the White House press office. She soon fell under the charismatic spell of President John F. Kennedy and subsequently became enmeshed in an affair with him that went on for over a year. After he was assassinated, she grieved in private and focused on building her own life. Exposed in 2003 by Robert Dallek, a Kennedy biographer, she found that life irrevocably disrupted. ONCE UPON A SECRET is her side of the story, told after 40 years of reflection and gained experiences.

Industry Reviews

"If there is one question that Ms. Alford's story poses, it is this: How did she end up in bed with the president on her fourth day at work? This may be the hardest part of her adventure to imagine, but it's what she explains best in the half of this book that reconstructs a 19-year-old's thinking."
