Becoming Portia – New Beginnings

What if you were on your own?
No family.
No friends.
No future.
In 1977, Annie Bruce has just aged out of foster care. Eighteen years old she’s on her own, ready or not!
Can changing her name, change her tragic past?
Annie has one summer, and only one chance to change her life!
New job, new name, new beginnings, but should the blunt-spoken Annie misstep, she risks not becoming Portia, but Jane Doe! The stakes were that high!

Author’s note: Annie’s tragic past deals with some hard realities – told gently – but it does include domestic violence, abuse, teen pregnancy, abandonment, homelessness, and the psychological and spiritual struggles of dealing with grief.
