About the Author:

Patricia Clapp was born in Boston and attended the Columbia University School of Journalism. Her first novel, Constance: A Story of Early Plymouth, was a runner-up for the 1969 National Book Award for Children's Literature. Her other books include, I'm Deborah Sampson, King of the Dollhouse, Dr. Elizabeth, and Jane-Emily. She describes herself as primarily "a theatre person"; she has worked with her community theatre for over forty years and still writes and directs plays for children. The grandmother of ten and great-grandmother of one, Ms. Clapp lives in Upper Montclair, New Jersey.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-9 Rosemary Leigh has come to America from England to join her brother in Vicksburg just before the start of the Civil War. She is thus caught up in the war and its causes as well as deeply involved in the seige of Vicksburg. Although at times the book reads like a history text, especially when causes of the war are explained, readers will be caught up in fate of the characters. Romantic interest is provided by a Northern artist, with whom Rosemary fights about the war, and a Southern boy who cannot, in the end, face the fighting after first greeting the war with humor and elan. Occasionally the historical events overshadow the character development, and characters are stereotypes, but aspects of life in a city under seige come through clearly, especially the hunger and the fear of shelling. Throughout the book the horrors of war are made clear. Since readers see the story through the eyes of a person with no ties to either side, they receive an unbiased view. There is a bibliography which includes a diary kept during the seige and published in 1885. Margaret C. Howell, Capitol Hill Day Sch . Lib . , Washington, D.C.
