  1. Hi Susan! I’m so glad you have a couple of Alcott picks for the month. I hope to learn more about these two as you read them. I haven’t even touched any of Bronson’s writings yet… but one day, ONE DAY, I’ll branch out in that direction.

    1. I started with Eden’s Outcasts–that book did a lot to change my mind about Bronson (not that I don’t believe he had several fatal flaws for he did). I admit I would not have gone further were it not for my research for the Lizzie book. She and Bronson were very much alike and since she doesn’t say how she thinks, I have to find out how he thinks (just wish he hadn’t put EVERYTHING done on paper! :-)) He is by far one of the most fascinating people I’ve ever come across.

      Eager to hear your take on An Old-Fashioned Girl (especially the end!) 🙂

  2. Great! Right now I’m enjoying ” May Alcott: A Memoir”, and “Marmee and Louisa”! Wonderful reading (“Little Women”—what REALLY happened! More fun than a tabloid!

  3. Ohhh I started Eden’s Outcasts earlier in the year when I reread the 4 Little Women books. I’ve been needing an excuse to finish it – thanks 🙂
