Free-Spirited

Clarissa Sullivan dreams for more from life than sipping tepid tea in stifling parlors in Victorian Boston. She defies her family's wishes, continuing to teach poor immigrant children in Boston's West End, finding a much-needed purpose to her life.

Radical

As a suffragette, Clarissa is considered a firebrand radical no man would desire. For why should women want the vote when men have sheltered women from the distasteful aspects of politics and law?

Determined

When love blossoms between Clarissa and Gabriel McLeod, a struggling cabinetmaker, her family objects. Clarissa's love and determination will be tested as she faces class prejudices, manipulative family members, and social convention in order to live the life she desires with the man she loves. Will she yield to expectations, or follow her heart on a journey of self-discovery as she learns what she cannot live without?

“”Banished Love” is an entertaining historical romance that touches on the women suffrage movement, the conventions and prejudices of society, class distinction, and the family expectations that women were subjected to in the Victorian era.” InD'Tale Magazine
