Hi teachers,
Using "her" or "to" in the following sentences is just a matter of style, isn't it?

a) She spent ten minutes talking to him about some details of the plan and then started her drive to the school at eight forty-five.
b) She spent ten minutes talking to him about some details of the plan and then started to drive to the school at eight forty-five.

Thanks in advance.

    I wouldn't say "just". The two sentences differ in focus. But they are close.
    Thanks, RedwoodGrove. I've asked that because someone recorded a short story that contains that sentence and instead of saying "her", he said "to". I don't think it will do any damage to the context.
