Acclaimed author Geraldine Brooks gives us the story of the absent father from Louisa May Alcott′s Little Women - and conjures a world of brutality, stubborn courage and transcendent love.

An idealistic abolitionist, March has gone as chaplain to serve the Union cause. But the war tests his faith not only in the Union - which is also capable of barbarism and racism - but in himself. As he recovers from a near-fatal illness, March must reassemble and reconnect with his family, who have no idea of what he has endured.

A love story set in a time of catastrophe, March explores the passions between a man and a woman, the tenderness of parent and child, and the life-changing power of an ardently held belief.

        Another stunning chronicle from Geraldine Brooks. She transports the reader through time and space to live with the characters. I need to go back and read my childhood favourite, Little Women, with a broader insight! Loved this book - read it.
