Rose Colored Glass takes place in the back rooms of Lady O'Riley's pub and Rose Fleishman's delicatessen in Chicago during the pre-war years of 1938-39. Their disparate worlds, separated by much more than the alley between their kitchens, are about to collide. Peg O'Riley, the 13-year-old granddaughter of Lady, has grown determined that these two very different women will become friends, but it is not until they become involved in the same cause that their friendship has a chance to bloom. In a series of stunning flashbacks, Peg, now older, remembers the moving story of how Lady and Rose formed a united front to fight American apathy in an attempt to get Rose's nephew out of Europe before the war.
