Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0972034412, Paperback)Possibilities, is set in the turbulent 1960's, and is the story of a young woman named Nora Steele. She must face her worst fears, when she is dragged into a dark alley late at night, by abusive, would be rapist, Jason Merk. Despite the fact that she was raised in an orphanage, Nora lands a decent job just before she has to move out on her own. Her hard work and dedication pays off however, when she wins the respect of her employer, powerful Detroit Michigan defense attorney Houston Ripley, and he volunteers to pay for her college education, and then gives her an impressive promotion. Ultimately, masquerading as a newspaper reporter Nora locates her maternal grandparents, in historic Mariemont Ohio, and through them finds her mother, famous author, Amy Snider. Her life is almost perfect until Blake Baxter, on leave from the Navy, anticipating a tour in Vietnam, shows up at Jeff's party. Although he is accustomed to having his way with women, he can't get to first base with Nora Steele. Every time he turns on the charm, she insults him. The fact that she hates him, and sees him as a clumsy, annoying jerk, only intensifies his desire to win her over.
