Starting Over by Laura Rittenhouse

Though she does not understand exactly why, Maria is not content with her lot. The prospect of exchanging dependence on her family for dependence on a husband does not sit well with this young woman growing up in late 19th Century Germany. Three generations later, on the other side of the Atlantic, Eva struggles with a similar restlessness; she is generally happy but never quite satisfied.This book follows Maria and her great-granddaughter Eva as they face surprisingly similar choices in dramatically different decades: how to keep a roof over your head, when to abandon independence and commit to a lover, where to draw a line in the sand. The choices they make take them to new countries, open them up to heartache and leave them wondering what is enough.

About the Author

Laura Rittenhouse grew up in Seattle and now calls Australia home. Her career in IT gave her the opportunity to live and work in six different countries on five different continents and, while rewarding, just was not how she wanted to spend her days. In 2006 she gave up that career to focus on her passion, writing.

Laura's first short story was published in 2008 and her first two novels, "Starting Over" & "Life's Journeys" were published by Wings ePress in 2009 & 2014 respectively. In between writing books she writes short stories in a variety of genres. A handful of these have been published online and in print magazines.
