A Fictional but touching memoir of a dynasty in the making
Nora Brennan, hired by Rose Kennedy as a nanny for her quickly growing family, gives a nuanced view of growing up Kennedy. Joe's single-minded pursuit of the American Presidency for Joe, Jr., Joe and Jack's fierce competition, Rosemary's disability, Kathleen's death in pursuit of her second Protestant marriage, Rose's strident religiosity and emotional distance from her 9 children are creatively chronicled through Nora's loving eyes. Spanning from JFK's birth in 1917, through the dark days in England in WWII and up until JFK's death, Nora gives a touching account of the beginnings of the Kennedy dynasty, ending in unforeseen tragedy for 5 of the 9 children. Touching, creative and extremely funny.
