I also loved this one.

She is a great writer. I would like to get her new book, Secret Chord, about the life of King David.
Ooh, I hadn't heard about that one.

Maybe it's not out yet. I requested it on NetGalley but was declined.

Great review, and a new book for my TBR.

Thanks! I enjoyed her Year of Wonders even more, and will definitely read more of her work.

A long time ago I read and greatly enjoyed 2 early books by Brooks, Foreign Correspondent and Nine Parts of Desire. Both are nonfiction, so I couldn't quite picture what her fiction would be like. But in spite of admiring Louisa May Alcott as a person I share your feelings about Little Women so this sounds very intriguing.

I tried to read March but found it disappointing after Year of Wonders and Nine Parts of desire. Had no problem with Little Women, but I'd just seen the Winona Ryder/ Susan Sarandon adaptation, so...

I was listening on audio. Wonder if that made a difference?

Maybe. I dont' like audio because it seems like you are stuck with the readers' layer of interpretation that you may not want.

I have this in audiobook so I must push it further up the TBR pile, but I think I want to reread Little Women before I do so.

It is difficult for me to recommend Little Women, but it adds an important layer to this story to have read it.
