Fresh out of school, friends Leonard and Don are two well-to-do young men who live lavishly, unjaded by the world. Between them, they both run successful businesses, with Don setting up his own company while Leonard discovers a passion for plants while working at his family's nursery.

Their charmed lives begin to change when Leonard first notices Melissa. The couple are apparently deeply in love, though the union is tenuous, strained by the disapproval of Leonard's shallow, status-obsessed family, who view Melissa as unworthy for their son. On top of this, the more cynical Don begins to fear that Melissa is just using Leonard for his money.

A tale of unbreakable friendship, The Nurseryman's Rose follows Leonard and Don as they grow and mature from young men with prospects into seasoned businessmen, facing love and heartbreak, schemes and betrayal, success and bitter failure, as they both struggle to find their feet in the treacherous world of adulthood.

Feeling that I might have already taken on more than my fair share of life's challenges, the enterprise of writing a biography, or any sort of book, for the first time, did seem quite an unusual thing to find myself doing in my mid-fifties. Though it has been a thoroughly rewarding new experience and one which I would like to try to develop in future years, it's always a difficult question being asked where my writing influences come from, because an ailing family business permanently suspended me from scholarly life at the age of sixteen, and limited my academic background to a very ordinary level public school education. While I hope my writing shows, that even this may still have been a great benefit for me to have had, I have little doubt that my Irish-Italian extraction also played a part in planting an imagination in my consciousness, long before my writing days began to dawn.
