Lenore Divine follows the romantic and political adventures of the title character and her friend Lafe Osgood. Will Lenore find happiness with dissolute Holly Virtue or with Waikato farmer Kowhatu Ngatoro? Can Lafe redeem his flapper fiancee from her hedonistic jazz lifestyle? Will the Labour Party achieve political power and influence? Can women find contentment in marriage or will a free love union bring more autonomy and sexual satisfaction?
