The heart wants what it wants – even when that calling could mean losing everything.
Stella Longhurst always dreamed of being an actress –a dream she thought was finally coming true when she left school and acquired an agent at age 18.
Now she’s nearing 40, working an unfulfilling job planning events she cares little for, and hasn’t acted in a decade for reasons she prefers to forget.
For the first time in years, an acting opportunity emerges that means she can chase her dream again, and she can’t pass it up. But taking that leap means ripping open a wound that
never healed and leaving behind a man she considers the love of her life.
Caught between the career she craves and the man she cherishes, Stella must make a decision that might result in heartbreak, no matter what – or who – she chooses to pursue.
A Stella Is Born is an affair of the heart. It’s confronting old pain; it’s reinvention after adversity. It is a story about risking losing a once-in-a-lifetime love to pursue a lifelong dream.
