Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter

51vedsidslI did not know too much about the Kennedy family history until I read Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter by Kate Clifford Larson. The book was a loan from a friend who loves books and knows how much I do. Rosemary Kennedy’s story is, of course, tragic. I enjoyed this no-frills account of the Kennedys in general and Rosemary in particular. I especially liked the first half of the book. After that, I didn’t feel like there were enough details. About 40 years of Rosemary’s life were detailed in the last 50 or so pages. While I know there is not a lot of documentation about this part of her life, I was nevertheless disappointed that I didn’t learn more about her. I may have to pick up another Kennedy biography since this one presented so many interesting threads that were not fully explored. I appreciate the loan and feel more informed for having read this one.
