Book Summary

When Nora Brennan, fresh to America from Ireland, lands herself a position as nursery maid to a family in Brookline, Massachusetts, she little thinks it will place her at the heart of American history.  But her job is with the Kennedy family, so how could it not?

Nora has charge of all nine Kennedy children, practically from the minute they are born.  She sees the boys coached at their father Joe's knee to believe everything they'll ever want in life can be bought.  She see's the girls trained by Rose Kennedy to be good Catholic wives.  With her sharp eye and her quiet common sense, Nora is the perfect candidate to report on an empire in the making.

Dear Nora has a deliciously inside view of everything that is happening upstairs, and in this fictional diary she tells all with the humor and candor that only a nursemaid dare employ.  Witty, irreverent, and a rollicking good read, The Importance of Being Kennedy is social satire at its best.
