Life can seem so unchanging in a small village. Some people can remain content with this their whole lives, while others thirst for change and want to broaden their horizons. Can true love overcome this need for change and keep you rooted? In Now My Life Begins, this is the dilemma faced by Jenny Barstow, who has grown up in Watsworth, England watching her mother live out her adult years as a servant at Watsworth Mansion. She vows to break family tradition and climb up the ladder to a better position in life. The problem is, her childhood friend and true love, Tim McKitterek, is chained to Watsworth, supporting his mother and family after the disappearance of his father. Now their dream of leaving Watsworth and building a new life together is destroyed, and it is up to Jenny to live the dream alone and give herself the future that she has always strived for. Jenny is a brave, intelligent young woman, and when opportunity kcks on her door after the death of her mother, she jumps at the chance, breaking her heart and Tim's in the process, and makes the journey to Edinburgh, Scotland to take up employment in the City offices. Unfortunately, only shock and disappointment greet her in the big city, but through the kindness of strangers, Jenny picks herself up off the ground and follows her dream on the roller coaster of life and its ups and downs. She encounters truly beautiful souls along the way as well as others she would rather forget, and through it all Jenny grows and transforms into a truly beautiful person and a force to be reckoned with, never giving up.
