This is an account of the life of a woman artist. It is raunchy and exciting. It tells of her war-time experiences, sometimes hair raising but always surviving the vicissitudes of war. She finds many opportunities to use her artistic skills in London, East Africa and Australia. Her description of the sexual mores of her day is explicit as is her first experience of childbirth. She has adventures of discovery in Europe just after the war and experiences the wilds of East Africa. She achieves success out of adversity. She is a woman liberated, an example of the meaning of tenacity in spite of all the odds against her. This is an unusual adventure tale because the protagonist is a woman. Kay Lipton is a promising art student. Life is exciting at the art school. Young men and women are honing their skills at life drawing and painting. The social life is good and summer in Britain is splendid. The black cloud of war is looming and life comes to a sudden chaos.
