Editorial Reviews


"Rosette is a remarkable work, a tale well-spun. With every successive wave of joy and sorrow, loss and longing, regret and resolve, broken hearts and healing hearts, readers will be swept into this powerful story and it intimately drawn cast of characters, as I was. Cindy Marsch's writing style is often breathtakingly beautiful, but never purple (quite the writing feat). This is a provocative and delightful novel, not to be missed."
--George Grant, author of The Courage and Character of Theodore Roosevelt and many other titles

"I sat enthralled as I read and couldn't put the novel down. It recalls the work of Willa Cather or Laura Ingalls Wilder with the wonderful details of Rosette's day-to-day life in the structure of the journal. The style just suits the subject, with an impressive capturing of the 19th-century voices. Cindy Marsch alludes to the deeper feelings and underlying tensions in a way that the reader knows what is happening without the characters actually saying it. Rosette's version of her story is moving, her brother and mother add perspective, and her husband Otis reveals his control, his separateness."
--Joy O'Toole, Central Rappahannock Regional Library, Virginia

"Rosette is a wonderfully written, engaging book. I am amazed at Cindy Marsch's ability to voice each of these characters believably, with light but appropriate use of metaphor, and I enjoyed living in their time. The story moves ahead at just the right moment, before we get overwhelmed with daily life. Rosette's marriage really is interesting, and I cannot wait to read the follow-up research. Perhaps with the publishing of Pioneer Girl the time is right for this novel."
--Cindy Ward Rollins, recipient of the 2016 Russell Kirk Paideia Prize, CiRCE Institute

From the Author

When my mother handed me a thrift-store journal find a decade ago and said, "You should write this story," I never realized how fully I would fall into the the world of Rosette Cordelia Ramsdell Churchill. The Michigan pioneer schoolteacher recorded the minutiae of her days and her dreams of 1856-58 but left out many details that might better reveal her real inner life. When I saw the way she had edited her wedding-day journal entry some time later, I knew there was a story to track down. This novel is the result.
