At nineteen, Chase Mullen leaves his small town home in rural Pennsylvania in search of himself, traveling throughout the west, working odd jobs to survive, staying with friends he makes along the way, and ends up in New York City to make his fortune on Wall Street. But the nine-to-five stressful dealing on the floor of the stock exchange only intensifies the yearning for something he cannot yet identify.
Finding a birthday card, unknowingly dropped in the parking lot outside a Starbucks, he reads the inspiring message over and over. It becomes his life’s guiding creed. With the help of a new friend, he trains and becomes an EMT in the heart of the city and his life, as he sees it, begins. In time he becomes infatuated with Suzanne, a young woman working at DiPrinanio’s Fruit Market in Brooklyn, who is in New York aspiring to a musical theater arts career on Broadway. They soon discover what they share in common, including growing up just ten miles apart.
A whimsical, budding romance ensues, complicated only by a dishonest relationship she struggles to end with someone else. As their love grows Chase confirms to himself the conviction he has always held “that he would definitely know real love if or when it ever came his way"… until he is shot during a carjacking and everything changes.
“DiPrinanio’s Stand” is a story of young love in search of hope.
