I have known for many years that JFK had an older sister and brother who both died in plane crashes in or near the years of WWII. I encountered "Kick", Kathleen's nickname, while reading a book about Evelyn Waugh and grew more curious. She was largely absent from the "broadcast" Kennedy history because, as you will find in the book, she defied the stringent Catholic beliefs of Rose and dared to live the life she wanted. I recommend the book for those interested in the Kennedy family and English society before and during WWII. Kristi & Abby Tabby
