A Woman of Spirit

 Previously Titled ‘An Independent Woman’

Book Number 1  Redwoods series

It is often a spur-of-the-moment decision that can become a turning point in life. So it is for Kitty Morland, a young woman in London in 1878. When she yields to temptation one fateful day, the consequences of her action force her to flee to Australia, hoping to join her brother.

On the other side of the world, she meets two men–William, an expatriate English aristocrat, and Rufe, a charismatic Colonial entrepreneur involved with trading in diamonds and in the goldfields.

Beautiful and spirited, Kitty needs all her courage and determination to survive the ordeal of marriage to William, a bullying husband. When he is drowned it leaves her alone to give birth to a daughter and to run a timber-cutting business in a male-dominated era that considers a woman only as an obedient homemaker and bed-warmer.

When she is offered a chance at love and happiness with Rufe, will she make the right decision?

“Kate Loveday writes so smoothly it is like the pen in her writing hand touches the pages and the words just flow out of her pen onto paper with such ease... she has many twists and turns and surprises, good and bad, in her stories that a reader doesn't expect...there is a richness to her writing. She may well be Australia's answer Barbara Taylor Bradford.”

Goodreads Reviewers


    Elly Cooper is looking forward to a weekend away in Brisbane with friends – including Jackson Lee, who she thinks may become more than just a friend during the trip.

But when he doesn’t turn up, and keeps sending text messages with excuses, she doesn’t know what to believe.

Then he goes missing – along with an important journal that contains her dead father’s life-long work, with details of how to make a beauty product he described as the fountain of youth, potentially worth millions.

The catch is that the main ingredient is a rare plant found only in the Daintree Rainforest,  Queensland.

And only her father knew where to find it.

Elly enlists the aid of handsome ex-policeman Mitchell Beaumont to help her find Jackson, the journal, and the plant. But someone else now has the journal and is on the trail of the precious plant.

It is a race against time to see who can find it first, and it seems as if whoever else is searching, they will stop short of nothing – even murder.

And as Elly and Mitchell search together, will their friendship develop into something more?
