Kathleen "Kick" Kennedy is not the first Kennedy that comes to mind but she will be after you finish this informative and touching gem.
Brought up to put family and religion first, Kick had the misfortune to fall in love with the one person who could drive a wedge between herself and her very important strict Catholic family - a Protestant from a titled British family. Billy's religion and sense of duty and family were just as strong so there was no easy compromise. Kerri Maher paints a very readable picture of the Kennedy clan as well as how the British aristocracy dealt with the early days of World War II. Kick gave the British a very American "kick in the pants" when it came to doing her part for the country she came to love.
I love to read good books and share the new books that are available and those that are coming soon
