Belinda Kroll crafts a tale of lost love and determination during the exciting first year of the American Civil War.

Though my novel is Civil War based, my goal was not to write about slavery, or stress the coincidental love story. I wanted to write a story about a girl who grew up when everything from fashion to politics changed. Because this was my high school senior thesis, I have citations throughout, which hopefully will not impose on your reading pleasure. I am glad to put my name as Catching the Rose's author, and I hope you enjoy.
