The Rose Variations

(2009)
A novel by

 

"Rose MacGregor is my kind of heroine-funny and serious, dreamy but brutally practical when it's called for; someone blissfully inconsistent-like the rest of us. What more can one ask than that a novel presents us with a unique personality such as Rose's?"
Judith Guest


"Who'd have thought it possible? There's news about love and work in Marisha Chaberlain's The Rose Variations! It'd be hard to find a more contemporary view of the sexual dilemma, but I couldn't help thinking how much Shakespeare, Mozart, and Jane Austen would have savored this novel."
David Huddle


In 1975, twenty-five-year-old Rose MacGregor moves to St. Paul, Minnesota, with nothing but a few books, her cello, and a temporary professorship at a Midwestern college. The only woman in the music department, the other professors refer to her derisively as "the Girl Composer," but she believes that a brilliant career writing music lies ahead.

Passionately focused on her art, she also longs to find love, but her fierce independence always seems to get in the way of romantic relationships. Struggling with loneliness and ambition, she gets tangled up with a gay colleague, a self-made stonemason, a lesbian cellist, and the troubles of her wayward younger sister, before finally finding happiness.
