Description

In 1899 two women from very different backgrounds are about to embark on a journey together—one that will take them from the Old World to the New, from the 19th century into the 20th, and from the comfort and familiarity of England to the rigors of Western Canada, where challenges await at every turn.



The journey begins simply for Kicker Stuart when she leaves her home village to take employment as hostler and farrier at Grindleshire Academy for Young Ladies. But when Kicker falls in love with a teacher, Madelyn Bristow, it radically alters the course of her tranquil life.



Together, the lovers flee the brutality of Madelyn's father and the prejudices of upper crust England in search of freedom to live, and love, as they choose. A journey as much of the heart and soul as of the body, it will find the lovers struggling against the expectations of gender, the oppression of class, and even, at times, each other.



What they find at the end of their journey is not a new Eden, but a land of hope and opportunity that offers them the chance to live out their most cherished dream—a life together.



Contains mature themes.

About the author

Born and raised in British Columbia, Canada, Lois Cloarec Hart grew up as an avid reader but didn’t begin writing until much later in life. Several years after joining the Canadian Armed Forces, she received a degree in Honours History from Royal Military College and on graduation switched occupations from air traffic control to military intelligence. Having married a CAF fighter pilot while in college, Lois went on to spend another five years as an Intelligence Officer before leaving the military to care for her husband, who was ill with chronic progressive Multiple Sclerosis and passed away in 2001. She began writing while caring for her husband in his final years and had her first book, Coming Home, published in 2001. It was through that initial publishing process that Lois met the woman she would marry in April 2007. She now commutes annually between her northern home in Calgary and her wife’s southern home in Atlanta. Lois is the author of three novels, 'Coming Home', 'Broken Faith', 'Kicker’s Journey', and a collection of short stories, 'Assorted Flavours'. Her most recent novel, 'Kicker’s Journey', won the 2010 Independent Publisher Book Awards "IPPY" bronze medal, 2010 Golden Crown Literary Awards best historical winner, 2010 Rainbow Romance Writer’s Award for Excellence - first place win in the historical category, and 2009 Lesbian Fiction Readers Choice Award for historical fiction.

    I never would have thought a 17 hour audiobook could be too short, but this one was!! I want more of Maddie and Kicker’s story. I feel there is so much more to be told. If Lois Cloarec Hart ever writes a sequel I’ll snatch it up right away. Hands down one of the best wlw audiobooks I’ve listened to this year.
