Character List and Analysis Kit McKenna


The four-year-old daughter of Elizabeth McKenna and Christian Hellman. Since Elizabeth's deportation to a German concentration camp and Christian's death, the islanders raised Kit as their own. After Juliet's arrival on Guernsey, the Kit and Juliet develop an unbreakable bond comparable to that of mother and daughter. She provides Juliet with the unconditional love of a child that had been missing in Juliet's life. Kit also exudes the spirit of her late mother Elizabeth, particularly through her facial expressions and sometimes hard-headed nature.
