“From New York Times best-selling Kennedy historian J. Randy Taraborrelli comes his most astonishing Kennedy book yet.”
Like I’ve mentioned before, I find the Kennedy family fascinating. So when a new book comes out, I find out about it one way or another and check it out. The Kennedy Heirs: John, Caroline, and the New Generation came out in the summer of 2019 and it is the perfect summer read.
I’ve read two other Kennedy books from this author and gave them both 2 stars, so I was a little wary picking up this book. However, I was pleasantly surprised. There’s enough first-hand accounts to make this book credible, with only a few times where I asked myself, “How the heck would anyone know that unless they were in the room?”
The Kennedy Heirs: John, Caroline, and the New Generation covers JFK,RFK and Ted Kennedy’s offspring, as well as a few appearances by the Shrivers. There is no mention of the Lawford kids, despite the fact that the author interviewed Christopher Lawford and quoted him quite a few times. There is also very little about Jean Kennedy Smith’s family, just a brief mention of the William Kennedy Smith case that was all over the papers and TV when I was in college.
The Kennedy Heirs: John, Caroline, and the New Generation was a good, quick and frothy summer read full of face written in a gossipy way.
