Good book on what it was like to see the day to day live of Rose Kennedy and family.
An intimate portrait of the Kennedy family. This book talks about the philanthropist who gave millons to charity yet tried to return used bottles of nail polish for credit. Rose,the formidable mother who intimidated Ted and her other grown children. She expected a great deal from her family as well as herself.
Written by Rose Kennedy's person secretary and close companion who unmasks the myth to reveal the woman behind the hats and Paris originals. Here is a Rose Kennedy with an iron will - feisty and independent, defying age with daily swims and walks...wielding matriarchal might over her grown children...a relentless dieter and someone who could charm anyone into doing whatever she wished. She could spend $1,700 for Christmas groceries, then return a bag of potato chips. You will get a behind the scenes peak of her strong faith, carrying her through triumphs and tragedies. You'll share her private moments of reflection, solitude, sadness and joy.
