Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter
Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter. Larson describes Rosemary Kennedy’s botched birth, her parents’ attempts to make her better, and finally the ways in which her life influenced other family members, especially her sister, Eunice, whose work with Special Olympics has done so much for people with mental disabilities. Thanks to this book, I was able to learn what an influence Rosemary had on channeling the work of so many Kennedy family members in this area. As a parent and grandparent, I cringed at the choices made by Rosemary’s parents, Joe and Rose Kennedy, with what may have been what they considered the best of intentions. Larson described another time and another era, but one with an impact on contemporary society. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Rosemary from amazon.com.
