  by Kelly O'Connor McNees was sent to me by a publisher.  This historical fiction is a must read for fans of Louisa May Alcott, author of Little Women.   

When I first started reading the book, I was lost because I needed to refresh on Alcott's famous work Little Women because there are references made in the The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott.  So, what did I do?  Why re-read Little Women, then read McNees' book.  This made sense to me because I was able to see parallels in both books.

McNees does a nice job in imagining an unknown part of Alcott's life having relationships.  She bases her writing off of research she has done in trying to understand Alcott's relationships. McNees does bring an interesting point she mentions that Alcott burned letters once she finished reading them.  It does make a reader wonder if there was more to Alcott that we may never discover.

A highly recommend read.
