The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott

A richly imagined, remarkably written tale of the lady who created Little girls- and the way love replaced her in methods she by no means anticipated. Deftly blending truth and fiction, Kelly O'Connor McNees returns to the summer time of 1855, whilst vivacious Louisa may perhaps Alcott is twenty-two and bursting to loose herself from relations and societal constraints and do what she loves such a lot.
