Book Bundles

A Reader's Respite is always smitten with books that, while not necessarily a series, tend to enhance each other....

Louisa May Alcott's classic novel was first published in two volumes, the first in 1868 and the second, originally titled Good Wives, the following year.  It wasn't until 1880 that both volumes were combined under the title Little Women.

Geraldine Brooks won the 2006 Pulitzer Prize with her parallel novel to Little Women, called March.  The novel follows the absent Mr. March as he struggles to return home from the Civil War to his family.

In April of this year, Kelly O'Connor McNees made her literary debut with The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott, a well-received historical fiction novel that imagines Alcott's mysterious love life.

We think this trio is rather cozy, don't you?

  1. This is a great trio, quite a happy little book bundle.

    Have you read MARCH? It's on my shelf, but I haven't gotten to it yet; a shame, since I am a collector/admirer of all things LMA-related. Thanks for the gentle reminder that the book is waiting for me ...


Fire away!
