Defining Her by Samantha March Only 99 Cents on Amazon Kindle. Being You Changes Over Time.

Defining Her by [March, Samantha]
I remember watching an old movie about an actress who became a star in 1930s Hollywood and had completely changed over the years. Somebody called her Daisy Clover. She replied, "That girl doesn't exist anymore."  The movie, Inside Daisy Clover starring Natalie Wood, came out in 1965. I think I saw it on TV in 1970 and just thought the character was being overly dramatic. Fast forward to 2018 and I'm in my early 60s. That quote doesn't sound so off base to me now.  The me from 2005 is much different from the me now and getting married late in life was only part of the equation.
In Defining Her, Nellie Hawthorne is a woman who has it all. A devoted husband, her own business, a wealthy lifestyle. But the Nellie she is now is much different from her past. A past filled with abuse, addiction, and men. Nellie’s carefully constructed new life is suddenly in jeopardy when a blast from the past emerges in her small town and her overbearing mother-in-law starts pushing for grandchildren and questions start being asked. A budding new friendship presents itself at an opportune time, and a once friendless Nellie finds herself growing closer to Prue Doherty.
Prue Doherty is the quintessential good girl. Always making the right decisions, always playing it safe. Until she meets a man that could change all of that. Still reeling from a devastating breakup and betrayal that had her fleeing from Chicago and settling into suburb life with her mom close by, Prue finds herself in a damaging funk. But everything changes when she befriends Nellie Hawthorne. 
Nellie is trying to escape her past. Prue wants that perfect future. While both women strive to change their lives, they continue to cling to the past. But what defines us? Who we were then . . . or who we are trying to be now? This is not your typical romance novel, but rather a psychological novel. It is deeper and more complex than the typical boy meets girl story. As the Brits say, have a look?  http://amzn.to/2tSKD4PLike what you see?
