Introduction

Everything looked more beautiful through the stained glass... except her past.

"A lush, romantic historical mystery...a heroine to root for." --Kristin Hannah, NYT bestselling author of The Nightingale


NYT bestselling author, M. J. Rose crafts a dazzling Jazz Age jewel--a novel of ambition, betrayal, and passion. 

New York, 1924. Twenty?four?year?old Jenny Bell has escaped her past... her hard-hearted stepfather, murder, and the dank hallways of Canada's notorious Andrew Mercer Reformatory for Women where she spent 2 years.

Now as one of a dozen burgeoning artists invited to Louis Comfort Tiffany's prestigious artists' colony. Gifted and determined, Jenny vows to avoid distractions and romantic entanglements and take full advantage of the many wonders to be found at Laurelton Hall.


But Jenny's can't help but be inextricably drawn to Oliver, Tiffany's charismatic grandson.

As the summer shimmers on, and the competition between the artists grows fierce as they vie for a spot at Tiffany's New York gallery, a series of suspicious and disturbing occurrences suggest someone knows enough about Jenny's childhood trauma to expose her.

Supported by her closest friend Minx Deering, a seemingly carefree socialite yet dedicated sculptor, and Oliver, Jenny pushes her demons aside. Between stolen kisses and stolen jewels, the champagne flows and the jazz plays on until one moonless night when Jenny's past and present are thrown together in a desperate moment, that will threaten her promising future, her love, her friendships, and her very life.

"Fascinating...an enchanting glimpse of Jazz Age New York." --Christina Baker Kline, #1 NYT bestselling author of Orphan Train and A Piece of the World

Prologue
March 13, 1957
Laurelton Hall, Laurel Hollow
Oyster Bay, New York

I lost my heart long before this fire darkened its edges. I was twenty-four years old that once-upon-a-time summer when I fell in love. A love that opened a door into a new world. A profusion of greens, shades of purples, spectrums of yellows, oranges, reds, and blues—oh, so many variations of blues. ... view entire excerpt...

Discussion Questions

Tiffany Blues takes place during the Jazz Age – in the same era as The Great Gatsby. What aspects of that time period seem really different and what aspects seem similar.

For Jenny, everything looked more beautiful through the stained glass, except her past. Why do you think she was so attracted to the glass?

Louis Comfort Tiffany was obsessed with beauty. How do you think it effected those around him — both good and bad?

Laurelton Hall is an oasis for Jenny and the other art students. How did the mansion work into the theme of the novel?

What had happened in Jenny’s past that kept haunting her and kept her shrinking into the background instead of taking all that New York could offer her?

Was it bad enough to have to
