R. L. Moszabout this book: The blue rose has long been a literary symbol of perfect, yet impossible or unattainable, happiness and love.
Roses in December is a sentimental romance that takes place in the early 1970s. The story is told in an old-fashioned narrative style and is a cautionary tale about falling in love with the wrong person.
When we are young, it is easier to believe people at face value and not reflect upon their actions as clearly as we should, which are oftentimes a reflection of their truest feelings for us. In Roses in December, Annie Aldridge is in love with poetic musician Ethan Jackson, but despite his words, he does not return her sentiments of love. Still, Annie clings to the stubborn notion that she can win him over and that they are destined to be together.
Right across the street lives a handsome young detective, a close family friend, who admires Annie from afar. His actions prove many times over his depth of concern and care for Annie, but she scorns him all the more as she becomes ensnared in her frustration over Ethan's vacillating spirit.
To complicate matters further, Detective Al Tortino has the case of his career to solve: A maniac is loose on the streets attacking the people of North Park. As he becomes more deeply entangled in the love triangle, his better judgment suffers, and the consequences quickly become disastrous. But true love is stronger than anything else in existence, even death, and ultimately, will always prevail.
