Abstract:

The recent death of America's most famous matriarch signals the end of an amazing era. Now, drawing on hundreds of recently declassified documents, and with the cooperation of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis's relatives, among others, New York Times bestselling author Charles Higham chronicles the life of Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy in this dramatic, moving biography. During her times of glory, agony and ecstasy, Rose gave birth to nine children and to an unforgettable vision of the American Dream. Deeply religious, intensely ambitious for her family, she moved through fascinating worlds: politics, big business, England as the American ambassador's wife, Hollywood, high society, and Washington's inner circles. The tragic deaths of four of her children never shook her faith; she believed despite the worst that God always held her in his hands.
