KICK
Paula Byrne
--------------------------

Description:
Kick was Joe Kennedy's favourite child and Jack's favourite sister. Spirited, vivacious and quick-witted, her charm was legendary and with her jokes, effervescence and ease of manner she became a star amongst friends, family and the press.When Kick sailed to Britain in 1938 after her father had been appointed US Ambassador in London she was presented at court as a debutante, attended all the best parties and was a house-guest at the finest country estates. She was described as 'the best thing America ever sent us'.

Kick was not conventionally beautiful, but men swarmed around her. As she mingled with aristocrats, politicians, writers and artists, everyone was drawn to her refreshing lack of stuffiness. To her the Duke of Marlborough was 'DukieWookie' and she taught her aristocratic friends to say in an American drawl, 'Oh, Kid what's the sto-o-ory'. Even the anti-American Evelyn Waugh was bewitched.As the clouds of war gathered, Kick met a shy, tall, handsome man called Billy and against the wishes of her powerful family, she married him.
