After years of trying to make it as a writer in 1990s New York City, James Smale finally sells his novel to an editor at a major publishing house: none other than Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Jackie--or Mrs. Onassis, as shes known in the office--has fallen in love with Jamess candidly autobiographical novel, one that exposes his own dysfunctional family. But when the books forthcoming publication threatens to unravel already fragile relationships, both within his family and with his partner, James finds that he cant bring himself to finish the manuscript.

Jackie and James develop an unexpected friendship, and she pushes him to write an authentic ending, encouraging him to head home to confront the truth about his relationship with his mother. Then a long-held family secret is revealed, and he realizes his editor may have had a larger plan that goes beyond the page...
