Summary
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize--a powerful love story set against the backdrop of the Civil War, from the author of The Secret Chord.

From Louisa May Alcott's beloved classic Little Women, Geraldine Brooks has animated the character of the absent father, March, and crafted a story 'filled with the ache of love and marriage and with the power of war upon the mind and heart of one unforgettable man' (Sue Monk Kidd). With 'pitch-perfect writing' (USA Today), Brooks follows March as he leaves behind his family to aid the Union cause in the Civil War. His experiences will utterly change his marriage and challenge his most ardently held beliefs. A lushly written, wholly original tale steeped in the details of another time, March secures Geraldine Brooks's place as a renowned author of historical fiction.

I am so glad for listening to this book. What I learned in history class about the civil war (in a yankee class) was that the north was good and driven by morality whereas the south bad and driven by financial concerns , stupidity and cruelty. Obviously this is a skewed picture driven by a prejudice special to the north , a kind of haughty scrupulousness. But I digress. Forget whether or not you like or don't like or haven't read little women as the determining factor for whether u will like this book. Because it emerges from scholarship, poetics, spiritual inspiration and insight into the state of literature, philosophy and politics of the time. This is rich and complex slice of one man' s experience of war. If you want insight into shattering impact war can have on a person read this and in this respect the book is also modern.
