New York, 1919. Social changes are rapidly sweeping the nation and expectations and pressures faced by a young girl from Ohio soon challenge her views of love, friendship and what it means to follow your dream, when she takes a leap of faith

After the death of her fiancé, seventeen-year-old Rose Farnsworth makes a surprising life altering decision to move to New York City alone and begin work at the new and exciting Hotel Pennsylvania, shocking those that knew her.

The new hotel is a bustling hive of activity in the middle of America's most electrifying city of its time, but for the impressionable young women who Rose works with there, it represents their only chance to escape the poverty and restriction that has suppressed the women in their families for generations.

1919 is filled with possibilities - especially for young women, and New York City is the epicentre of that transformation. Yet, as Rose takes on her new life as a working woman at the hotel, she must come to terms with her own acceptance of how the changing social scene in the country will affect those she cares about, while coping with the life she left behind in Ohio.

The Hotel Penn is a heartwarming story about a young woman's search for love and independence and a life far different than the one that was planned for her. I invite you to slip back in time and into another world and, in doing so, experience the hope and faith that was essential in building a new generation that created a vibrant country and the strong women who were a part of that change.

A heartwarming story that will remind you that hope in the face of adversity can change a generation.

*Inspired by events and people that changed the fabric of their country by taking a chance and believing in change. The Hotel Penn is a coming of age story about finding your own identity while accepting love, friendship and change and holding true to your heart to the end.
