    John Kennedy may be the most famous of this political clan, but the matriarch of the family was Rose Kennedy. This insightful book into the life of Rose Kennedy is well written, well researched, and just a plain old darn good book.

    As a high school student during the early 1960's, I was impressed by John Kennedy and then by the Kennedy clan. Over the years I became more familiar with him and his family. However, not until Professor Perry's book on Rose Kennedy did I ever know much about the family matriarch. Little did I realize Ms. Kennedy had so much influence on her family. I suppose I had always assumed her husband Joe ran the family. Now, as a result of Professor Perry's extensive research and interviews with key players, I have a much better concept of how the family operated. I had not know how much adversity was experienced by the Kennedys and especially Ms. Kennedy. We all were familiar with the deaths of Joe, Jr., JFK and Bobby. But, there was so much more. I highly recommend this book to anyone who would be interested in learning more about this famous family.

    A well researched and written book. Rose Kennedy was a remarkable woman. Highly recommend this book. The author has such insight to Mrs. Kennedy. I read first the Patriach, Joseph Kennedy by David Nassaw. Recommend reading the Patriach and then Rose Kennedy. Two people who gave so much and lost so much.
