    An Independent Woman is a wonderful and unique historical romanc

    An Independent Woman is a wonderful and unique historical romance.
    Cheated of her birthright and trapped in a time and place where women have few choices, and women of limited means almost none, Kitty Morland finds herself time and again pushed into actions that do not fit her heart or her soul and from which there is no turning back. From Victorian England to the new world of Australia through the fight to defend her new home and her future, Kitty stands as a woman ready to face all odds with her head held high knowing that the only real choice is to protect to people she loves.
    Forced to flee Victorian England, Kitty and her mother board a ship to Australia to join her brother Robert. On the pleasant journey to the new land, Kitty meets two men who will affect her destiny, Rufe Cavanaugh, an attractive Australian who is rumored to be almost engaged to the lovely daughter of his traveling companions, and William Barron, the stodgy son of an English aristocrat who has eyes only for Kitty.
    Pressured by circumstance into marriage with a man she does not like, much less love, she moves to beautiful new home, Redwood, in a wonderful but isolated land. When she challenges sense of his superiority, he reminds her that by law she is no more than a possession, and unknown to her he is gambling his money away. Without the dominance and disapprove of his mother to hold him in check, her husband’s insecurities shift from arrogant reserve to a bullying cruelty, possibly even to insanity.
    From the journey to the new world through the struggle to defend her new home and her future, Kitty stands as a woman ready to face all odds with her head held high to protect those she loves.
    I do not usually read historical romances, but after reading Kate Loveday’s contemporary Australian romance, Inheritance, I wanted to know if her other works was as good. I think there is there is a richness to her writing. She may be Australia’s answer to Barbara Taylor Bradford.
    I have only one complaint, the second book in the Redwood Series is not out and will not be for a while.
