Summary

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize--a powerful love story set against the backdrop of the Civil War, from the author of The Secret Chord. From Louisa May Alcott's beloved classic Little Women, Geraldine Brooks has animated the character of the absent father, March, and crafted a story 'filled with the ache of love and marriage and with the power of war upon the mind and heart of one unforgettable man' (Sue Monk Kidd). With 'pitch-perfect writing' (USA Today), Brooks follows March as he leaves behind his family to aid the Union cause in the Civil War. His experiences will utterly change his marriage and challenge his most ardently held beliefs. A lushly written, wholly original tale steeped in the details of another time, March secures Geraldine Brooks's place as a renowned author of historical fiction. From the Trade Paperback edition.

  • I am so glad for listening to this book. What I learned in history class about the civil war (in a yankee class) was that the north was good and driven by morality whereas the south bad and driven by financial concerns , stupidity and cruelty. Obviously this is a skewed picture driven by a prejudice special to the north , a kind of haughty scrupulousness. But I digress. Forget whether or not you like or don't like or haven't read little women as the determining factor for whether u will like this book. Because it emerges from scholarship, poetics, spiritual inspiration and insight into the state of literature, philosophy and politics of the time. This is rich and complex slice of one man' s experience of war. If you want insight into shattering impact war can have on a person read this and in this respect the book is also modern.
  • "March" is a very well wriiten book. The author has a gift for utilizing rich language and this skill and the quality of this book will insure that this work will be enjoyed for years to come.
  • Both harrowing and sometimes heartbreaking, March proves to be a action-packed, dutifully descriptive account of Louisa May Alcott's Mr. March during the Civil War. I was impressed by the well-researched attention to detail of a time when southern ex-slaves were under Union occupation. The narrator, Richard Easton, has the perfect voice - rich and dramatic - to tell the tale. A satisfying listen.
