Dora, Doralina by Rachel de Queiroz

This novel follows the journey of a young woman in early 20th-century Brazil as she breaks free from the constraints of a repressive household and an arranged marriage. Yearning for independence and driven by a rebellious spirit, she embarks on a transformative adventure that takes her from the conservative hinterlands to the more liberal coastal cities. Along the way, she encounters a variety of characters, confronts the challenges of a society in flux, and seeks to define her own identity against the backdrop of a country grappling with modernization and change. Her story is a poignant exploration of self-discovery, feminism, and the quest for personal freedom.
