520    While Joe Kennedy was grooming his sons for the White 
       House and the Senate, his Stanford-educated daughter 
       Eunice was tapping her father’s fortune and her brothers’ 
       political power to engineer one of the great civil rights 
       movements of our time on behalf of millions of children 
       and adults with intellectual disabilities. Now, in Eunice,
       Pulitzer Prize winner Eileen McNamara finally brings 
       Eunice Kennedy Shriver out from her brothers’ shadow to 
       show an officious, cigar-smoking, indefatigable woman of 
       unladylike determination and deep compassion born of rage:
       at the medical establishment that had no answers for her 
       sister Rosemary; at the revered but dismissive father 
       whose vision for his family did not extend beyond his 
       sons; and at the government that failed to deliver on 
       America’s promise of equality.  Granted access to never-
       before-seen private papers—from the scrapbooks Eunice kept
       as a schoolgirl in prewar London to her thoughts on 
       motherhood and feminism—McNamara paints a vivid portrait 
       of a woman both ahead of her time and out of step with it:
       the visionary founder of the Special Olympics, a devout 
       Catholic in a secular age, and a formidable woman whose 
       impact on American society was longer lasting than that of
       any of the Kennedy men.
