THE BOOK

"Rosemary" book discussion

Our discussion this week was about the book, Rosemary:  The Hidden Kennedy Daughter by Kate Clifford Larson.

We had mixed reviews on this book – some highs, some lows

One gal has read many other books about the Kennedy Family and didn’t think this book was as well written as others.

The book is about Joe and Rose Kennedy’s oldest daughter, Rosemary.  Rosemary’s life is a heartbreaking story.  She suffered intellectually and developmentally from a brain injury incurred during her birth.  Joe and Rose Kennedy continued to seek and try various treatments for Rosemary’s disabilities with the last and most horrific one being a lobotomy.

We did have a very good discussion from the book about the Kennedy family, Rosemary, and mental illness in general including how treatments for mental illness has changed, resources for it have greatly improved, and family members are no longer hidden away.
