At times, this book--both in its text and in its reading--seems to present the so-called second-generation Kennedy women as saints or saint-like. It praises the Kennedy men at times but also includes periodic criticisms of their personal lives. While Fowler reads with clarity and an even pace, her reading is too positive and too cheery. Such a reading seems to reflect the almost uncritical characterizations of the women, and perhaps Fowler is merely reading in a manner consistent with the text. It seems, however, that a voice not so warm would have been better for this book. M.L.C. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
