The Kennedy Debutante (by Kerri Maher) … Kathleen Kennedy’s struggles and fight for independence

This was an enlightening story of Kathleen (Kick) Kennedy. While a lot has been written about the Kennedy family, not much has been shared about Kathleen. This was a wonderful tale of her life as an adult that starts during Joe Sr.’s time as the U.S. ambassador in the United Kingdom. The author does a wonderful job of bringing you into Kathleen’s life and the struggles she experiences as a daughter of such a powerful family but also one who tries to walk the fine line between respecting her family and their religious beliefs and her need to follow her heart.

The supplemental information at the end of the book was very informative. I loved that this book would share a thought or fact and I would search on line to find out additional information.

I appreciate the author, publisher, and GoodReads for an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. I would definitely recommend this to people who enjoy historical fiction. I am now anxious to read more about Rosemary Kennedy!
