Abstract:

Nora is a country girl from Westmeath. When she becomes nursery maid to a family in Brookline, Massachusetts, she little thinks it will place her at the heart of American history. But it's the Kennedy family. At the outbreak of World War II the Kennedys are living the high life in London, where Joseph Kennedy is ambassador. His reaction is to send everyone back across the Atlantic, but Nora chooses to stay and do her bit. Separated from her Kennedys she nevertheless remains the sun around which the older children orbit: Joe, Jack, Rosemary, and in particular Kick, who throws the first spanner in the Kennedy works by marrying an English Protestant.
