An Independent Woman is a wonderful and unique historical romance. If you like Victorian era historical romances, you will love it, the twist is that over half of it takes place in Australia.
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...more

(Historical Romance)

London in 1878 was a very hard place for the working classes. So it is for Kitty Morland, a young woman in service of a large house.

When she yields to temptation one fateful day the consequences of her action force her to flee to the other side of the world, to the small timber town of Bulahdelah in the mid-north coast of New South Wales, home of the giant cedar trees. This is a very picturesque area and the author is able to transport us to...more
