Louisa May Alcott’s Boston

I am pleased to present this guest post from Lorraine Tosiello, author of The Bee & The Fly and Only Gossip Prospers.

I took a stroll in Louisa May Alcott’s Boston recently and will take you along!

20 Pinckney Street on Beacon Hill, where the family lived in the basement in lean years. I was happy to meet a Dad and his daughter who live in the building and were going to have a romp in Boston Common. Louisa would approve.
