'Kitty Godfree is remarkable.  Few men or women of any age could compare with her sporting achievements.
She was born Kathleen McKane on 7 May 1896.  nine years later she cycled from London to Berlin, a short distance of 600 miles with Margaret, her elder sister, and parents.
Geoffrey Green, sometime Tennis Correspondent of The Times, captures the warm, romantic spirit of this amazing woman who, at the age of ninety one, still finds time to play doubles on the covered courts at Wimbledon once or twice a month, to drive her faithful Mini and to shop for her large family on her bicycle.  This book is truly an appreciation of a lady of a Golden Age.'
