Description

Kathleen "Kick" Kennedy was the incandescent life-force of the Kennedy family. The daughter of the American ambassador to the Court of St. James's, Kick swept into Britain's aristocracy like a fresh wind on a sweltering summer day. Kick was the girl whom all the boys fel I in love with, the girl who remained painfully out of reach for most of them. To Kick, everything about this life was fun and amusing - until suddenly it was not. For this is also a story of how a girl like Kick, a girl who seemed made for happiness, confronted crushing sadness. Willing to pay the price for choosing the love she wanted, she would have to face the consequences of forsaking much that was dear to her. Bestselling and award winning biographer Barbara Learning draws on her unique access to firsthand accounts, extensive conversations with many of the key players, and previously-unseen sources to transport us to a world of immense wealth, arcane rituals and rules, glamour and tragedy that has now disappeared forever. This is the coming-of-age story of the female starof the Kennedy family, and ultimately a tragic, romantic story that will break your heart.
