Her 1923 book The End of the House of Alard became a best-seller, and gave her prominence- it was followed by other successes and her books enjoyed worldwide sales.

Kaye-Smiths novels straddle more than one genre of fiction. Her earliest novels partly fit into the earthy rural category, together with that of Mary E Mann, Mary Webb, D. H. Lawrence, and Thomas Hardy, a genre which inspired Stella Gibbonss parody Cold Comfort Farm. Kaye-Smiths descriptions of the Sussex countryside, coast and marsh are still regarded as some of the finest.

Several of her heroines become single parents and most face various gender-related trials, reflecting her early feminism as well as influences such as George Moore and Thomas Hardy. Kaye-Smith also produced many short stories, and journalism published in national journals, magazines and newspapers.
