An exhilarating look inside what it really could have been like growing up Alcott!

Following up her previous historical novels, Always Emily and Nobody's Secret, Michaela MacColl weaves a narrative by turns suspenseful, romantic, tender, and thrilling.

Based on historical research (and including notes on the basis for the story), prepare yourself to enter a world of transcendentalists, slaves, and a host of familiar names that will thrill lovers of classic American literature.

"From the corner of her eye, Louisa caught a glimpse of movement in the shrubs by the front windows. She retreated to her door and reached for the stout walking stick she kept there.

“Who’s there?” she called, forcing a quaver down.

A cracking noise of a foot on a twig, then a deliberate silence."
