Eunice: The Kennedy Who Changed the World

JFK, Jackie, Ted, Bobby…when you think of the Kennedys, these names likely pop into your head. But that's because you don't know Eunice. This absorbing biography chronicles the life of Joseph and Rose Kennedy's fifth child, a woman recognized today for her work with Special Olympics but who was an indomitable driving force behind so much more. In the eyes of her father and the rest of the world, Eunice always took a back seat to her brothers, but this smart, dogged, fiercely competitive woman was a force to be reckoned with all on her own. A devout Catholic whose life of privilege was shadowed by tremendous loss, Eunice became a ferocious advocate for those shunned by society: juvenile delinquents, incarcerated women, and, above all, the intellectually disabled, like her sister Rosemary. Hailed as a woman who "measured herself, and everyone around her, by what got done, not by what got promised," Eunice Kennedy Shriver will astonish you! (KG)
