Rosette: A Novel of Pioneer Michigan

        When almost-spinster school teacher Rosette Cordelia Ramsdell met Otis Churchill on a Michigan farm in 1856, she thought he might be the one. Her real-life journal tells what happened over the next two years. History tells what happened over the next six decades.       
        This literary historical novel explores the truth.
        We meet Rosette in 1888 as she revises a crucial page of her journal, then we live the journal's entries in the voices of Rosette and others around her. In lush detail, this novel by Cindy Rinaman Marsch traces how we both choose and suffer our destiny. It shows how hopes that have come to naught can sometimes rise again from the wreckage.
