"...As the North reels under a series of unexpected defeats during the dark first year of the American Civil War, one man leaves behind his family to aid the Union cause. His experiences will utterly change his marriage and challenge his most ardently held beliefs. Riveting and elegant, 'March' is an extraordinary novel woven out of the lore of American history. From Louisa May Alcott's beloved classic, 'Little Women,' Geraldine Brooks has taken the character of the absent father, March, who has gone off to war, leaving his wife and daughters to make do in hard times. To evoke him, Brooks turned to the journals and letters of Bronson Alcott, Louisa May's father -- a friend and confidant of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. In her telling, March emerges as an idealistic chaplain in the little known backwater of a war that will test his faith in himself and in the Union cause. As he recovers from a near mortal illness, he must reassemble his shattered mind and body, and find a way to reconnect with a wife and daughters who have no idea of the ordeals he has been through."
