Rebirth

Nicolette Shue has to start over after years of teenage rebellion led to jail-time. What she doesn’t anticipate is a foray into the unpredictable world of horse racing, with a fiery young jockey at her side.Fresh-out-of-jail miscreant, twenty-five year old Nicolette Shue returns to the Virginia ranch where she'd spent part of her childhood. She has her share of a life insurance payout, yet what stretches before her is a desolate future: her parents are dead, her siblings are away at boarding school, and she has no useful skills for employment. Her friend Mulder suggests horse racing and though Nicolette thinks it's a farfetched idea, she buys a horse anyway. She didn't count on Jockey Lydia Ferguson being part of the deal. Lydia is bold, quick-tempered, and reminds Nicolette of herself. Nicolette wants to restore order in her life, but when an old enemy from her past surfaces he is egged on by Lydia's taunts. Nicolette fears she has made another big mistake. Is it really worth the gamble to bet on a volatile jockey? Or to pour what little she has into an unproven horse? An even bigger challenge is masking the growing attraction she feels for Lydia. REBIRTH is an unfolding tale about self-emergence.
