NEW YORK, March 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- LITERARY FICTION DEBUT WEAVES ELEGANT & EXCITING TALE OF FRIENDSHIP, LONGING, AND INTERNATIONAL INTRIGUE
"I have heard a wise man say that love is a form of friendship, and friendship a form of love; the line between the two is misty. I happen to know that this holds true because I have roamed that misty line. Time has passed since then, but I cherish the memory of the blue roses in grace and perpetuity — our blue roses. It all began with a fortuitous encounter."
Set against the backdrop of some of New York City's most impressive and culturally significant locales, Yorker Keith's literary debut, Remembrance of Blue Roses follows the narrator, Mark, and a married couple, Hans and Yukari, as they attempt to navigate an ever-changing relationship dynamic that oscillates between friendship, love, and obsession.
After a chance encounter at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Mark, Hans, and Yukari become fast friends, their mutual love of classical music, opera, and art fostering a quick camaraderie. Their bond deepens as they unveil interwoven family legends and international affairs, illuminating the lives of these international civil servants at the United Nations New York Headquarters in Manhattan.
The gripping story becomes further complicated by the involvement of Mark's ex-wife, Francine, and his high school sweetheart, and former fiancée, Jane. A series of tragedies ensue, shattering the joy of Mark, Hans, and Yukari, and altering their future forever.
"Remembrance of Blue Roses is a stellar read by a new novelist. I was engaged from the very beginning and read obsessively to the end," proclaims Readers' Favorite book reviewer Tracy Slowiak. "The complicated relationships shared by the main characters were not only intriguing, but were interesting enough for me to hope that there will somehow be more about them from this author. Readers who enjoy a sophisticated and well-written book about the complexity of human relationships will definitely enjoy Remembrance of Blue Roses."
