Darby is a little #homesick when she arrives at the Barbizon Hotel in 1952 until she meets Ezme, the Barbizon maid, and is introduced to another side of New York City.
More that half a century later, Rose, a journalist, lives downstairs from Darby in the Barbizon which has now been turned into condos is intrigued by the rumors surrounding Darby and the death of a hotel maid. As she delves into the past neither woman will be the the same.
Dancing in the kitchen
You singing my favorite songs
Swinging on the front porch
Just laughing at the dogs
All those little moments
Are every reason why I'm homesick
This feeling that I'm feeling
No it don't quit 🎶
In Homesick, Jean Fritz tells her own story of childhood amid turbulent times in China
