Passion, infidelity, social climbing, and one very special white rose weave a seductive narrative in this intelligent and tender novel. At forty-eight, Marian Kahn, a professor of history at Columbia University, has reached a comfortable perch. Married, wealthy, and the famed discoverer of eighteenth-century adventuress Lady Charlotte Wilcox, she ought to be content. Instead, she is horrified to find herself profoundly in love with twenty-six-year-old Oliver, the son of her eldest friend. When Marian's snobbish cousin Barton announces his engagement to Sophie, a graduate student in Marian's department, Marian, Oliver, and Sophie find their lives woefully entangled and their hearts turned in unfamiliar directions. All three of them will learn that love may seldom be straightforward, but it's always a gift. From the West Village to the Upper East Side, from the Hamptons to Millbrook, The White Rose is at once a nuanced and affectionate reimagining of Strauss' beloved opera Der Rosenkavalier and a mesmerizing novel of our own time and place.
