This look behind the mask of the widow of Robert F. Kennedy is full of eyebrow lifting stories. I've read many, many books on the Kennedy family in the days of Camelot and I would rank this one up there. This book paints a portrait of a woman more concerned with appearances than with her family's conduct. The sympathetic and seemigly helpless widow with an iron fist and a competitive nature. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
