9780143036661: March

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.

From the Back Cover:

"A very great book... It breathes new life into the historical fiction genre [and] honors the best of the imagination."
Chicago Tribune

"A beautifully wrought story about how war dashes ideals, unhinges moral certainties and drives a wedge of bitter experience and unspeakable memories between husband and wife."
Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Inspired... A disturbing, supple, and deeply satisfying story, put together with craft and care and imagery worthy of a poet."
The Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Louisa May Alcott would be well pleased."
The Economist

Book Description Penguin. 1 Paperback(s), 2006. soft. Book Condition: New. (Winner of the 2006 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction) As the North reels under a series of defeats during the dark first year of the Civil War, a man leaves behind his family to aid the Union cause; his experiences will utterly transform his marriage and challenge his most ardent beliefs. From Louisa May Alcott's Little Women, Geraldine Brooks has taken their absent father John March and animated him with the recorded thoughts of Alcott's real-life father Bronson, who was a close friend of Emerson and Thoreau. March emerges here as an idealistic chaplain in a war that will test his faith in himself and in the Union cause. As he recovers from a near-mortal illness, he must reassemble his mind and body while finding a way to reconnect with a wife and daughters who have no idea of the ordeals he has endured."Reviewers were almost universally won over by, and emotionally invested in, this memoir-like tale. Brooks doesn't hesitate to plumb the morally gray complications of war; in fact, many critics call the darker undertones a significant and mature strength, especially when compared with Little Women. Minor characters are exquisitely rendered and include several real-life figures, and Brooks's prose is lush and evocative [and] demonstrates the author's painstaking research."óBookmarks 280.
