L.M. Alcott

Hello Dear Followers,

Well, I finished “Louisa May Alcott: A Personal Biography” by Susan Cheever. Overall I thought this book was a great read, it really gave me good insight to who Louisa was as a person, her relationships with others in her life, especially her family.

I found myself saddened by the mention of  her death in the end, because through out my reading the book, I found I had somewhat relate to who she was as a person, but I’m sure many of us can.  I thought Ms. Cheever did a great job at describing the various locations in which Louisa lived and traveled.

It made me realize that I need to travel back to Concord at some point soon and really spend a good deal of time there, because I think there is so much to learn about who this woman was.  I thought it was sad when Ms. Cheever said that Louisa had burned some of her journals, could you all imagine how many more books could have come out of that? But I guess some things were to remain private.

Reading through Louisa’s life made me realize how short life can be and how quickly time passes. She carried a great burden of taking care of those she loved for most of her life. She to me, was not only meant to be an excellent writer remembered for generations, but a caretaker remembered by those who loved and knew her best.

I really look forward to reading more about her in the future and hope to do so! I hope you all enjoyed my posts on this book! Later this evening, I will formally announce my new book choice.

Until Then…
