Summary
She taught us how to love. But who taught her? / Kelly O'Connor McNees mixes fact and fiction, deftly, as she imagines a summer lost to history, carefully purged from Louisa's letters and journals, a summer that would change the course of Louisa's writing career --- and inspire the story of love and heartbreak between Jo and Laurie in Little Women, the classic novel by Alcott. In the summer of 1855, Walt Whitman's controversial Leaves of Grass has just been released, and the notion of making a living as a writer is still a far-off dream for Louisa. She is twenty-two years old, vivacious, and bursting with a desire to be free of her family and societal constraints so she can do what she loves most --- write. The Alcott family, destitute as usual, moves to a generous uncle's empty house in Walpole, New Hampshire, for the summer. Here, Louisa, striking but pensive, meets Joseph Singer. Louisa is initially unimpressed by Joseph's charms. But just as Louisa begins to open her heart, she discovers that Joseph may not be free to give his away. Their newfound love carries a steep price, and Louisa fears she may pay with the independence she has fought so hard to protect. While the historical facts throughout McNees's debut will be a delicacy to Alcott fans, The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott is first and foremost a universal story of love and how it changes us in ways we could never imagine. -- Container
