Summary (From the publisher):

A tale of a young woman's self-discovery, of sublimated passion, of villainy narrowly defeated and of true love triumphant at last, A Laodicean is a comedy whose happy ending is more than usually hard won. Paula Power, its reluctant 'New Woman' heroine, faces the task of finding for herself a role and purpose in life, but within social and economic foundations that are rapidly and permanently changing. Nostalgically longing for medieval certainties, she is forced to face the fraught conditions of her own age.

Originally serialised in Harper's New Monthly Magazine between December 1880 and December 1881.
