The year is 1988, the place, New York City. The gifted but mercurial Haley Barrett drops out of Princeton--forfeiting a scholarship-- and takes a job as a nanny on the Upper West Side, much to the dismay of her working class family. Haley becomes smitten with the charismatic and elusive actor, Evan Candelier, despite her friends' warnings.
She finds a sympathetic ear in the irrepressible Sinclair Wellington, a costumer and Scottish count, who confides his own story of a doomed romance from decades past. Sinclair inveigles Haley in a series of capers to win Evan. When Sinclair’s lost love reappears one snowy day, Haley witnesses what may become her own fate if she does not uncover the mystery of Evan’s reticence.
From Upper West Side brownstones and bookshops, to downtown cafes and art houses, Haley and her circle of bohemians wend their way through late eighties Manhattan, making precocious pronouncements on books, art, life, and love.
Blue Rose In Chelsea has been called “a thoroughly engaging, lovely, modern fairytale” and “an insightful and quirky story of first love.”
