Comments from the Rights Holder:

Ann Blackman is a journalist and the author of Seasons of Her Life: A Biography of Madeleine Korbel Albright and co-author of The Spy Next Door, about the FBI agent Robert Philip Hanssen. In her thirty year career in journalism, she has covered US and foreign politics, and has written often about American social policy. Blackman is married to Michael Putzel. They have two grown children and live in Washington.

CHARACTER: Rose O'Neal Greenhow is fascinating woman, whose double life as a Washington socialite and tough-girl spy is full of intrigue. While she is mentioned in many Civil War books, this is the first book to provide a comprehensive and compelling account of the woman and her times.

THE CIVIL WAR: Blackman's research into the characters of the time--from the Washington political elite to rural Maryland slaves to Rose herself--is formidable, and she provides new perspectives on familiar stories.

WASHINGTON, DC: Wild Rose showcases the young capital city, with landmarks still known today.

AUTHOR: An accomplished journalist and author of an acclaimed biography of Madeleine Albright, Ann Blackman writes with confidence and finesse.
