Publisher Description

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize--a powerful love story set against the backdrop of the Civil War, from the author of The Secret Chord.

From Louisa May Alcott's beloved classic Little Women, Geraldine Brooks has animated the character of the absent father, March, and crafted a story "filled with the ache of love and marriage and with the power of war upon the mind and heart of one unforgettable man" (Sue Monk Kidd). With "pitch-perfect writing" (USA Today), Brooks follows March as he leaves behind his family to aid the Union cause in the Civil War. His experiences will utterly change his marriage and challenge his most ardently held beliefs. A lushly written, wholly original tale steeped in the details of another time, March secures Geraldine Brooks's place as a renowned author of historical fiction.

Excellent historical fiction

A personalized account of March’s experiences and life- guiding philosophy, elegantly written. At times the story I’d a bit thin and overly sentimental, overwrought might be the 19th c word. Interesting few chapters when we switch to his wife’s viewpoint as narrator. Strong character in ex-slave, Grace. Overall a good read! Probably Ly will be a banned book in the near future in America where we can’t tell children true history….

Enjoyable read

The author takes liberties with the characters of Louisa May Alcott in a believable and thought provoking way. The reader now has an even better grasp of what life for the March family would ave been like in its time of war -- a war that, except for Chaplain March's leaving to minister to the troops, really never affects the girls and their mother, living as they did far north in Concord, Massachusetts.

This is a "5" without a doubt!

I couldn't put the book down! The story of the Little Women
continues effortlessly. The beginning was a bit slow to action but stick with it......it gets better! No doubt this will be a classic
