Firstly, the book is well written and uses good source material. The author does a nice job of focusing on Kick and not getting us lost down the whole Kennedy rabbit hole. Tough to do but she nailed the right balance. I felt as if Kick told the story herself. I connected with her in 2016 as she was in the 1930s and 1940s. She did enjoy a life of privilege but also lived that life grounded in reality. She is someone that I would love to have called my friend.
Secondly, the narrator does a great job. She made the book more enjoyable.
I highly recommend this Audible selection. It is a great biography steeped in history with genuine interpersonal conflict.

I am an avid researcher of the assassination of both John and Bobby, so when I saw this book, I thought it would be great to read and know. It was quite interesting for the most part but it also smacked of a certain level of upper-class dis-connection. I found there were a lot of dates, names and incidents, which did not spin my propeller. Ouch, considering the number of Kennedy family members who suffered from plane crashes.....
It is a good book indeed and adds to my feelings of sadness for all the Kennedys have endured. But then, there are millions who have endured similar; we just don't know about them because the others are just... "others."
