This is an excellent biography of the Kennedy women, from Bridget Murphy who came to the US in the 1840's up to the book's publication in 1994. Obviously, a lot has happened to the Kennedy family since this book was published, but Leamer does a very thorough job of portraying the lives of the women up to that point. I was especially interested in learning about Kathleen, as she is not as well-known today. Leamer does a great job of showing how the Kennedy women were dramatically affected by society's and the family's views about the role of women throughout the 20th century.
