November 22nd, 1963 Dallas, Texas 12:20p.m.
Margaret Baker was a normal, excited American. Today was the day the president was coming to Dallas. She was going to watch the presidential procession come through Dealy Plaza. Margaret felt ridiculous, though. She had to wear a disguise so her boss wouldn't see her. He despised President Kennedy. An overcoat and a headscarf. A disguise that would change her life forever. Margaret would forever be known as "The Babushka Lady", and the footage she shot that day would forever change history. Margaret was afraid of what would happen if she came out with the footage, so she kept it a secret. She didn't even tell her husband. She stored the footage in a safe deposit box in a bank, and tryed to go on with her life. A life she lived in fear.
Sheila Baker, Margaret's daughter, is now left her mother's secret. Margaret has passed and left the footage to her daughter. After watching the footage, Sheila isn't sure what to do. Should she destroy it or let it out? So she contacts billionaire truth-seeker Jason Hammond to help her. Suddenly both Sheila and Jason's lives are sent into a tailspin. Both running, for their lives. Can they let the truth out or will the wrong people get to them first?
I thought this book was amazing. The Kennedy assassination has always been a sad but intriguing topic to me. Although the author states he truly believes Oswald was the only shooter, the story is quite believable. I would recommend this book to anyone who finds this topic or history in itself interesting.
