Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter

Even before John and Jackie moved into the White House, the Kennedy family enjoyed near-celebrity status in the United States. Patriarch Joe Kennedy was a successful and savvy businessman who, along with his wife, Rose, demanded perfection from all of his children in everything they did. All of his children, that is, except Rosemary. The Kennedys' third child and eldest daughter, Rosemary was born with intellectual disabilities that her parents first sought to remedy and later to hide, eventually with devastating results. This absorbing biography of the beautiful, vivacious Rosemary offers fascinating insight into the Kennedy history and family dynamics, as well as a shocking glimpse into not-so-distant social and medical cultures that shunned and mistreated those with disabilities - cultures Rosemary's siblings Eunice, Jack, and Teddy one day would fight to change. It's a must-read. (KG)
