Riassunto: A New York Times Bestseller
During the dark first year of the Civil War, one man leaves behind his family to aid the Union cause. His experiences will utterly change his marriage and challenge his most arduously held beliefs. From Louisa May Alcott's beloved classic Little Women, Geraldine Brooks has taken the character of the absent father, Mr. March, and - to evoke his voice - the letters and journals of Bronson Alcott, Louisa May's father.
Dal retro di copertina:
"A very great book... It breathes new life into the historical fiction genre [and] honors the best of the imagination."
— Chicago Tribune
"A beautifully wrought story about how war dashes ideals, unhinges moral certainties and drives a wedge of bitter experience and unspeakable memories between husband and wife."
— Los Angeles Times Book Review
"Inspired... A disturbing, supple, and deeply satisfying story, put together with craft and care and imagery worthy of a poet."
— The Cleveland Plain Dealer
"Louisa May Alcott would be well pleased."
— The Economist
