Review of In search of Love - previously A Liberated Woman

“Kitty Barron was a woman who faced the hardships of bringing up her daughter alone. The owner of Redwood in the New South Wales countryside, Kitty was an unusual woman. In Australia in 1893 when a woman married all she owned became the property of her husband. Kitty was determined that her daughter Joy, would not have to face the prospect of losing what was rightfully hers.


Joy Barron, like most girls of sixteen thought her future lay outside the splendor of Redwood. At a boarding school in Sydney she befriends Lily, a country girl like herself who also has worldly ambitions. Joy is unaware that Lily will soon become a greater part of her life that will cause great sorry. When Joy gets the chance to go to England to be presented to Queen Victoria, she gets Lily to go with her. What happens to Joy and her close friend Lily while the two girls are in London turns their world and everyone around them into chaos.


Rufe Cavanagh a man of ambition and drive, moves in and out of Kitty’s life by cruel twists of fate. The passion of youth can sometimes override logic and take on a corrosive force that destroys relationships. Rufe and Kitty fall victim to the whims of youth and drift apart. Later on in their lives they rediscover each other and find out that life is indeed often stranger than fiction.


A Liberated Woman is a light hearted romantic tale of women, young and old, coming to grips with the evolution of a new social order forming at the beginning of the twentieth century. Kate Loveday has penned a story that flows well. I feel buyers of this book will get enjoyment out of seeing how the protagonists overcome the different situations they find themselves thrust into.”
