The prose describes beautifully and graphically what it was like to be a woman in those rapidly changing, revolutionary times...

Romantic notions and hunger for adventure drive Kate to a passionate love affair that leads to a seemingly picture-perfect marriage. Kate soon realizes her small-town Southern upbringing hasn’t prepared her for the harsh realities of life. Her desire for love is strong, but her free-spirited nature is even stronger. She escapes A Quiet Life In Bedlam to find something more.

This coming-of-age story about a girl who grows up in the crazy world of the 1960s shows what it was like to live in those revolutionary times. As Kate searches for love, she fends off danger and her search proves to be a funny, tender and outrageous love story.
