    SUMMARY × The Other Alcott The Other AlcottLouisa had confessed to basing her main characters the March sisters upon her own family but added that she ironed out some of the irregularities in their lives Anna's gracious temperament lent itself to becoming the kind and nurturing Meg; Louisa smoothed herself into the fiesty rebel Jo; Lizzie's saintliness increased; and May turned into little precocious and selfish Amy In her debut novel Elise Hooper explores the tumultuous relationship between 19th century American author Louisa May

    SUMMARY × The Other Alcott The Other AlcottI was fortunate enough to win a Kindle ebook copy of this book in a goodreads giveaway Many thanks to the author and goodreads friend Elise Hooper I wish you great success with your debut tale based on the life of Abigail May Alcott Nieriker 1840 1879Elise has obviously done a great deal of research into not only May's life but also the historical background for the story most especially the art scene in Europe during the fascinating period when 'a group of artists were 'experimenting with composition style and techniue' and struggling to be accepted by the traditional art world and critics in the press who dubbed them 'Impressionists'Abigail May Alcott known as May was Louisa May Alcott's youngest sister and

    SUMMARY × The Other Alcott The Other AlcottLittle Women was only one of those books that enraged me I felt hoodwinked at the end each time I read it and soundly placed the blame on the author She who leads readers on and then perversely switches the end she's been hinting at any author who does that without warning well they are bound to be a challenge in real lifeAfter reading The Other Alcott I feel my opinion is confirmed Louisa is competitive and imperious While I never had considered actual Alcott siblings sit

    SUMMARY × The Other Alcott The Other AlcottReading Elise Hooper’s debut reminded me of one of the first books I fell in love with as a young girl I devoured The Other Alcott in the same fashion as Little Women Transported to another time lost in the pages of this vivid world that sweeps from Concord to Paris and London and Rome this story will make you fall in love with May Alcott and when you reach that last page and the journey is over you’ll want to go back to beginning and start all over again—it’s that good

    SUMMARY × The Other Alcott The Other AlcottThough I love Little Women and knew it was somewhat autobiographical I did not know a whole lot about the lives of the Alcotts I very much enjoyed this sensitive and well researched imagining of the life of the youngest Alcott immortalized in Little Women as cute willful pretentious Amy The reality of May's life was far complicated as was her relationship with her famous sister Louisa I was engrossed by this story and whipsawed by the ending Beware you will cry

    SUMMARY × The Other Alcott The Other AlcottFANS OF LITTLE WOMEN DON'T MISS THIS ONEAn absolutely fascinating debut by Elise Hooper Along with millions of other people I've long loved Louisa May Alcott's Little Women However I knew little about the author's life and even less about her sister May I loved learning about the Alcott's unconventional family I thought concentrating on May in this historical fiction was a genius idea how must it have been at that point in history to have a hugely successful sister while you have professional ambitions of your own The novel examines this uestion in a thoughtful and honest manner Hooper is a beautiful writer and the tone of THE OTHE
