Mexico, Maine, 1963: The Wood family is much like its close, Catholic, immigrant neighbors, all dependent on the fathers’ wages from the Oxford Paper Company. But when Dad suddenly dies on his way to work, Mum and the four deeply connected Wood girls are set adrift. WHEN WE WERE THE KENNEDYS is the story of how a family, a town, and then a nation mourns and finds the strength to move on.
