A Woman of the World

Genie Chipps Henderson

Berkley, Nov 2004, $6.99, 384 pp.

ISBN: 0425199134

Kate Goodfellow dreamed of becoming a photographer and with a steely determination she has made her aspirations come true, even though it cost her marriage. In 1935, in New York, Kate meets writer Hopper Delaney and soon they marry and collaborate on books together. Kate is on top of the world, but will not allow family or love to stand in the way of her globetrotting to take pictures at hot spots.

In 1942, Kate is on her way to North Africa when the vessel she was on is sunk. While stranded with others in a lifeboat, Kate looks over her years with her box camera fearlessly going to locales and doing things women do not do, pondering whether she would have changed anything different like raising a family.

Readers will admire the guts and spunk of the heroine as she visits hot spots to take pictures around the world. The storyline reads somewhat like a memoir as Kate looks back at the highlights of her life and the choices she made. To learn whether she is second-guessing and filled with remorse, readers will have to read this fabulous tale that shines quite a spotlight on world events circa 1930s to early 1940s.
