The Real “Jo March”

This was a hard choice, in the last few weeks I had been really thinking about what my next book choice was going to be, I am trying or was try-

ing to work my way from my older books to my newer books, but I couldn’t resist with this book choice.

I have chosen “Louisa May Alcott: A Personal Biography” by Susan Cheever. Simply because it is my heart, Louisa May Alcott has been one of my favorite authors since I was a little girl reading “Little Women”. For years I’ve wanted to visit Orchard House in Concord, Mass., and finally did last summer. And I truly was in my element. (Pictures will come later)

“Louisa May Alcott: A Personal Biography” tells the story of the author of “Little Women” who passed away at the age of 55 in 1888, according to Ms. Cheever’s Web site. Ms. Alcott wrote other books such as “Jo’s Boys”, “Little Men” and much more.

When I saw this book at the book store not too long ago, I had to have it. And while I have a ton of other books in my closet right now that I have had for years that still haven’t been read, I just couldn’t resist.

Also, I promised myself after “Middlesex” that I would read a really short book, well it is shorter, just not as short as I had hoped.

Anyway, I hope you all follow me in reading “Louisa May Alcott: A Personal Biography.”
