With the insight born of her own hardships, Pearl Buck presents a compassionate yet candid portrait of the women who were born Kennedys or married Kennedy men. She writes of Rose, beautiful, well-bred, and politically wise; of her first daughter, the lovely but retarded Rosemary; of Kathleen and Eunice, Jean and Joan; of the ebullient Ethel, the rebellios Patricia, the self-willed Jacqueline; and, lastly, of young Caroline. Miss Buck's conjecture of what the future may hold for the Kennedy clan is thoughtful, sobering, and, at times, surprising.
