Geraldine Brooks – March – TBR

March

March

The Back of the Book: A good man caught between love and guilt, courage and fear …

1861, the first year of the American Civil War.  March leaves his beloved wife and daughters to fight for the Northern forces.  Alone in a country ripped apart by violence and hatred, he sees things that shake is very soul.  He also encounters the woman who had changed his life nearly twenty years earlier – Grace.  She is beautiful, educated, and a slave.

From Louisa May Alcott’s beloved classic, Little Women, Geraldine Brooks takes March, he absent father gone to war, and conjures the story of a passionate man struggling not just to return to the heart of his family, but also to keep his faith – in himself, in his fellow man and in love itself.
