|About the Book|
Kitty Hanson worries over her ninety-year-old mother’s declining abilities and insists, in a long-running feud with her husband, that Rose be welcomed into her suburban Chicago home. George Hanson flat out refuses, claiming he needs his privacy. Rose Turner overhears the threat to put her in a nursing home and takes matters into her own hands.Looking for the passion she had denied herself years ago, Rose runs away. She knows she’ll find Robert at the lovely old Empire Hotel in French Lick, Indiana. Under the scrutiny of the hotel staff, Rose awaits Robert’s arrival, lays out a red satin gown, and hopes she’ll recognize the man she left behind.
