The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott
by Kelly O'Connor McNees




Overview -
A richly imagined, remarkably written story of the woman who created Little Women--and how love changed her in ways she never expected.

Countless readers have fallen in love with Little Women. But how could the author--who never had a romance--write so convincingly of love and heartbreak without experiencing it herself?

Deftly mixing fact and fiction, Kelly O'Connor McNees returns to the summer of 1855, when vivacious Louisa is twenty-two and bursting with a desire to free herself from family and societal constraints so she can do what she loves most. Stuck in small-town New Hampshire, she meets Joseph Singer, and as she opens her heart, Louisa finds herself torn between a love that takes her by surprise and her dream of independence as a writer in Boston. The choice she must make comes with a steep price that she will pay for the rest of her life.
