The Rose (A Lady Katherine Novel)

Rated 5.00/5 based on 3 reviews
When thirteen-year-old Lady Katherine sailed away from her home in the Caribbean for school in London, she didn’t expect a brutal pirate attack. Far from her mind when she boarded the ship was a murder mystery to solve. Don’t get her started on the ghost. Her biggest surprise came, however, from a slip of the tongue by the Earl of Oxford; one that could have history changing implications. More

Review by: diana corbitt on Aug. 12, 2013 :
This is a great book for older girls, say 10-13 years old. It takes place hundreds of years ago in the days of pirate ships and adventure. Katherine, the main character, is a mouthy, but kind-hearted young woman who happens to come from a high born family, but has a hard time acting like a proper lady. It takes place when she is a young woman sent away to boarding school, and since Kate has a tough time keeping her mouth shut, her time at school doesn't go smoothly. Lots of adventure and fun. A guilty pleasure.

Review by: M. G. Cronkite on July 08, 2013 :
If you like adventure, you may get addicted to thirteen year old Lady Katherine. She is a delightful, independent inspiration to her peers. The Rose, by Dennis Berry, puts the pleasure in pleasure reading. It’s one of the most enjoyable action books I have read. I am eager for more of this exciting character to come to life on the pages. Lady Katherine is dynamic in every twist and turn she is faced with. Pirates, murder and ghosts, as well as a cold castle with a rigid headmistress, will not keep this feisty teenager down for long. She has a spirit that won’t disappoint.

Review by: Leona Pence on June 29, 2013 :
Dennis Berry has written a delightful historical fiction book for all ages. I read it from cover to cover in one sitting. The heroine, Lady Katherine, proves to be a handful to her chaperone, and a headache to her new school headmistress when she arrives in London. Her enthusiasm is dampened by rigid rules, a chilly castle, and the dour headmistress who shows favoritism to a princess.

I found myself searching for a sequel to this book, but I guess I'll have to wait a bit for it to be written. I highly reccommend The Rose and look forward to the next book by Dennis Berry.
