"She woukld always be her own woman - true to her wild, searching heart.
Adeline Gundry, born in the golden summer of Edwardian England, was raised to be a perfect lady in a pefect world of rank and privilege. But Adeline, like the century itself, had other ideas. For what Adeline wanted was not a conventional life filled with teas and dances, nor a conventional marriage held together by stictures and rules. Adeline wanted independence and passion - the sort of love that makes you feel alive.
From her idyllic childhood in Devon to her glorious success as an artist in bohemian London, from domesticity in trouble-torn Ireland to carefree interludes in the golden playgrounds of the Carribean and French Riviera, Adeline lives her life, gloriously, to the full. And always she is herself - determined, headstrong, passionate - a woman of her times."

Spanning a period from 1909 to 1976 it provides an interesting insight into a mindset of an untraditional female ;-)
