The Lost Summer Of Louisa May Alcott

Filed under: Book Recomendations,Historical Fiction,Literary Tidbits — susanbright @ 2:01 pm

I just finished reading The Lost Summer Of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly O’Connor McNees. After finishing a heavy duty book like The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, this book was just what I needed. The Lost Summer is a fictional story based on the life of Louisa May Alcott, best known as the author of Little Women.  It is the summer of 1855 and Louisa, 21 years old is living at home with her family in Walpole, New Hampshire. Unlike her sisters and the other young women in town, Louisa has no interest in getting married and being stuck home raising a family and doing housework. She has dreams of one day moving to Boston, living on her own and writing and nothing is going to get in her way! When Louisa eventually finds love she has some difficult decisions to make. There were times when I wanted someone to shake some sense into her, but if they had, Little Women may never have been written! If you are looking for a light, quick read, this is it!
