Liberty and Opportunity centres around four forthright, liberal women, spans five generations, three continents, two world wars, and one hundred years.

The story begins in 2000 New Zealand when Nicole receives an ancient diary from her Canadian grandmother, Cindy that she reads. It begins in 1898 with Amanda’s elopement with her beloved Jack and her struggle to survive and prosper away from her domineering father in Washington State. The two begin a new life in Vancouver, Canada where, over the years, she develops a publishing empire.

Her daughter, Dorothy becomes a nurse serving in England. She falls in love with a soldier about to be charged for desertion from the trenches in the Western Front in World War One. Will he be court-martialled and shot?

In World War Two, Cindy becomes a land girl in war torn England and tragedy strikes their family.

Each period in time is filled with drama, joy and sometimes tragedy, but vividly illustrates the determination of each woman to enrich her life through love of partners and families and a liberal outlook on life.

N.B. The paperback version is entitled Fir, Oak And Fern.
