Publisher's Summary

Rosemary Kennedy was born at her parents' house in Brookline, Massachusetts. She was the third kid and very first child of Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr. and Rose Fitzgerald. Throughout her birth, the physician was not readily available and the nurse commanded her mother to keep her legs closed, requiring the infant's head to remain in the birth canal for 2 hours. By Massachusetts state law, the Binet intelligence test was provided to her prior to first grade. Due to failing this test she was held back twice from kindergarten. Rose Kennedy sent Rosemary to the Spiritual Heart Convent in Elmhurst, Providence, Rhode Island, at age 15, where she was separated from the other trainees and given special assistance. She studied hard even though she might have felt she dissatisfied her mom and dad, whom she desired to please. The Kennedys thanked them for their efforts by offering the school a brand-new tennis court. Throughout this duration, her mom set up for her older brother John to accompany her to a tea-dance.
