“There it lay in all its dusky majesty. Her rose!”
When Marion Warren bought herself a season ticket to the symphony, she expected to bring a spark of new life into her world of drab routine, nothing more. But what she finds at the concert hall sends her life whirling into the unknown and makes her wish for the drab again. Each night a mysterious crimson rose rests on her seat with no sign of who left it—except perhaps the young man Marion saw watching her on opening night.
As the mystery of the roses looms large, wealthy Jefferson Lyman whisks into Marion’s world, bringing with him a deepening love for Marion—and the jealousy of socialite Isabel Cresson. Jefferson searches for a way to win Marion’s heart, but his efforts may be in vain. Soon Isabel’s false charm begins to draw Marion into a dangerous social circle—threatening to end more than a budding romance.
