Chase by Louisa May Alcott

Book Description

'I often feel as if I'd gladly sell my soul to Satan for a year of freedom'. Rosamond Vivian has been brought up as a recluse on a remote island off the English coast. When Phillip Tempest - charming, devastatingly handsome and almost twice Rosamond's age - mysteriously appears one stormy night he finds a peach ripe for the plucking. 'I am willing to pay for my pleasure if necessary', Rosamond asserts boldly, but nothing can prepare her for the life that Phillip Tempest will lure her into sharing with him. Instead of the freedom she craves, Rosamond finds herself caught up in the strange past of her new husband. Terrified of him and all he represents, she flees, and so the chase begins - from Parisian garret to a mental asylum, from convent to chateau. But Phillip Tempest has never allowed anything to escape him, and Rosamond has become his obsession. A compulsive tale of love, desire and deceit, "The Chase" was considered too sensational to be published during Louisa may Alcott's lifetime. Its discovery after more than a century marks a new page in literary history.

Book Review: Chase by Louisa May Alcott - Reviewed by (19 Mar 2013)

The Chase, also titled A Long Fatal Love Chase, is one of a number of early books by American author Louisa May Alcott, and was written in 1866 under the nom de plume A.M. Barnard, as a serialised novel for a magazine. It was rejected as “too long and too sensational” and was not actually published until 1995. Living on an island with her unloving grandfather, Rosamond Vivian is ripe for the plucking when rich Phillip Tempest comes along in his luxury yacht. After a month of courting, they are “married” and set sail for an idyllic life together. After a year of wedded bliss, Rosamond discovers that her husband and their marriage are not what she believed. She escapes, and the chase begins; it is a chase that takes Rosamond and Phillip from Nice to Paris, a convent in Amiens, Wiesbaden, Cologne and eventually back to England and her grandfather’s island. This novel is quite unlike Alcott’s better-known works: there are daring rescues, narrow...
