Roses in December: A Sentimental Romance from the 1970s

| February 7, 2015


Roses in December, told in a simple narrative style, is a sentimental, G-rated romance set in the early 1970s. After having suffered a tragic loss, Annie Aldridge attempts to begin her life again with her fretful uncle and precocious young niece. Her newfound love for poetic, whimsical boyfriend, Ethan Jackson, imbues her with hope. But Ethan is a man in search of himself and is unable to decide with whom he wants to be. Just across the street, police detective Al Tortino admires Annie from a careful distance. But for Annie, the handsome neighbor and family friend is little more than an increasing annoyance in her troubled life.

The harder Annie struggles to win over the elusive Ethan, the more hopelessly entangled her life becomes with the caring, classically handsome detective. Soon, despite the lamentations of her family, she loathes the very sight of her neighbor and refuses to speak to him at all.

Yet as Annie pines for Ethan, Al has the case of his career to solve: A maniac is attacking people on the streets of North Park. Al’s deepening love for Annie wears away at his pragmatic nature; but when the detective’s judgment finally slips, a terrible price may come for all to pay.
