Description - March by Geraldine Brooks

Winner of the 2006 Pulitzer Prize For Fiction. From the author of the acclaimed YEAR OF WONDERS, an historical novel and love story set during a time of catastrophe, on the front lines of the American Civil War.

Acclaimed author Geraldine Brooks gives us the story of the absent father from Louisa May Alcott's LITTLE WOMEN - and conjures a world of brutality, stubborn courage and transcendent love. An idealistic abolitionist, March has gone as chaplain to serve the Union cause. But the war tests his faith not only in the Union - which is also capable of barbarism and racism - but in himself. As he recovers from a near-fatal illness, March must reassemble and reconnect with his family, who have no idea of what he has endured. A love story set in a time of catastrophe, March explores the passions between a man and a woman, the tenderness of parent and child, and the life-changing power of an ardently held belief.

'A moving and inspirational tour de force' - Los Angeles Times Book Review

Book Review: March by Geraldine Brooks - Reviewed by (10 Jun 2011)

This is the untold story of the March Girls' (of Little Women)father.

Although I have not read Little Women, I was still able to cope. The characters are very likable and the story works very well as a well researched historical fiction. Actually it made me feel I should probably should read little women at some stage!

American civil war and the coverage of the American South / anti slavery movement etc make an extremely interesting read.

Geraldine Brooks writes with a flexible and entirely readable style and is so well researched, you feel that the story could be true.
