Classic Literature. Fiction. Literature. Historical Fiction. HTML: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 ficti… (más)

I liked the way the story combined the lives we know from "Little Women" with the letters written by March followed by his harsh experiences during the Civil War. Marmee is written up as more of a spitfire than one would guess from Alcott's story. It did take me some while to recognize March as a separate person from Bronson Alcott, whom he was modeled after. This was quite an interesting book, but at some point it started to seem fantastical--all the ways Grace shows up in March's life are more coincidental than would occur in real life. ( )

[March] has been on my TBR shelf for far too long, but I wasn't looking forward to reading it as I have mixed feelings about other novels Brooks has written. This is the back story about Papa March from [Little Women], absent for that novel working as a chaplain and whatever is needed down in the war zone. He sees and participates (as a passive observer) in horrible things and most of his efforts to help seem wasted, eventually he falls ill, Marmee comes to nurse him, he won't go home with her, then Beth gets sick, you all know the story if you've read [Little Women] (Which I am going to assume you have if you read this novel.) So this is all about what happens to March while he is away, a window into the war. On the whole a worthy novel but . . . not compelling is what comes to mind? So carefully and thoroughly and conscientiously researched and written that light and life never fully enter in and overall I felt a little bludgeoned and truly never warmed up at all to March who, it seemed to me was suspiciously good at justifying his infatuation as being something other than what it was and came across also as being immature in his insistence of his failures. What I think is that Brooks felt that in order for the story to work, Papa March had to be a stubborn git -- but I think there would have been other better and more convincing ways to develop his character. I think she wanted to create a flawed man, and she did do that, I guess, too flawed? I don't know. I'd like to give it a *** but I am adding a 1/2 for all the work Brooks put into research. ***1/2

Geraldine Brooks has created a novel "packed with the anguish of love and marriage and with the power of war upon the mind and heart of one unique man" using the character of the absent father, March, from Louisa May Alcott's cherished classic Little Women (Sue Monk Kidd). Brooks follows March as he departs from his family to support the Union cause in the Civil War with "pitch-perfect writing" (USA Today). His experiences will fundamentally alter his marriage and put his most fervent convictions to the test. March solidifies Geraldine Brooks' status as a distinguished writer of historical fiction with its sumptuous writing and completely unique story steeped in period specifics. 2006 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction winner.

Great novel about Mr. March, the father in Little Women by Alcott and his experiences before and during the Civil War. Good insights on evils of slavery and miscommunication in marriage. ( )

Brooks is capable of strong writing about the natural world and nicely researched effects about the human one (on the eve of a battle, March sees ''the surgeon flinging down sawdust to receive the blood that was yet to flow''), but the book she has produced makes a distressing contribution to recent trends in historical fiction, which, after a decade or so of increased literary and intellectual weight, seems to be returning to its old sentimental contrivances and costumes.
 
Fascinating insight, don’t read if you’re a Little Women purist.

Jo said sadly, "We haven't got father, and shall not have him for a long time." She didn't say "perhaps never," but each silently added it, thinking of father far away, where the fighting was. ======= Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

I am no longer eager, bold & strong.
All that is past;
I am ready not to do
At last, at last,
My half day's work is done,
And this is all my part.
I give a patient God
My patient heart.

(attributed to Cephas White- composed by an unnamed patient of Louisa May Alcott - transcribed in a letter to her aunt that is held among the rare manuscripts in the Library of Congress).
