The Merchant Prince

Step 1:

I've chosen the poem: Rosie Roberts from Spoon River Anthology by Edgar Lee Masters. I was drawn to these poems since they were all stories of lives lived, and lives lost.  I pulled the other main character, Harry, after reading through all poems and coming across Washington McNeely. I had decided based on the fate of his children, his son best matched the character that might have been in Rosie's room.

Step 3:

Rosie Roberts works at Madam Lou's brothel where a wealthy family's son is a jealous regular until one night his obsession goes too far, and both of their lives are changed forever.
