London, 1938. The effervescent "It girl" of London society since her father was named the ambassador, Kathleen "Kick" Kennedy moves in rarified circles. Eager to strike out on her own, Kick is soon swept off her feet by Billy Hartington, the future duke of Devonshire. But their love is forbidden, as Kick's devout Catholic family and Billy's staunchly Protestant one would never approve their match. When war breaks like a tidal wave across her world, Billy is ripped from her arms as the Kennedys are forced to return to the States.

I adore the Kennedy Family and have been following them since I was a little girl.

This book was so so well written and so detailed about Kit’s life — and I
Had never heard any of it before. I love Kerri’s writing style, her attention to detail and her friendly approach with her words. I left like I was listening to a friend tell me a story.

I know this is Kerry’s first book which makes me so happy because I can only imagine how many more great books she will write about either the Kennedy’s or another family she follows.

Thank you Kerri and Julia for this fantastic audio book. I literally can’t wait to tell every single person about this book!!!

Get busy Kerri!

In this intimate, haunting, literary memoir read by the author, an American icon tells her story for the first time, in her own gorgeous words - about a challenging and lonely childhood, the craft that helped her find her voice, and a powerful emotional legacy that shaped her journey as a daughter and a mother.

For those of us grew up watching Sally Field from the very beginning, hearing her voice makes us feel like we are listening to a friend’s voice we haven’t heard from in awhile.

Her words are painful to listen to and from time to time I had to take a break. Yes, she is a Movie Star but she is also a person- with her own hurts and her own life to share. Thank you, Sally, for letting us get to know you better and hearing your journey.
