Please refrain from throwing pencils at me but I despise Little Women I think it is silly saccharine drivel Because of this I was reluctant to pick up LITTLE WOMAN IN BLUE but I’m so glad I did Atkins delivers a marvelous reimagining of the very human story behind one of America’s most beloved novelsArtists are often jealous by nature They wish heartily for one another’s success when they’re struggling and then covet it when another achieves a certain level of status Eual parts self doubt and ego artists experience an incessant war within the psyche Atkins fully animates these competitions and struggles giving an unflinching glimpse into the tensions of a being a woman in the nineteenth century in a working class family in a nation at war LITTLE WOMAN IN BLUE portrays these conflicts of sister and world with just the right touch–never burdening the reader with too much hopelessness while creating intrigue and bringing the well known writers and thinkers of Concord Massachusetts to vivid lifeThroughout the reading of the novel I was often tempted to look online for May’s full life story but I’m happy that I waited until I finished LITTLE WOMAN IN BLUE is the Little Women I have always wanted and for those who enjoy literature of this time period and complicated female protagonists I highly recommend it

Dear Readers I loved LITTLE WOMEN as a girl and I still do But as the years passed and I learned about Louisa May Alcott’s real family I read her novel with different eyes I learned that the real youngest sister May Alcott worked diligently at her art as well as enjoying flirtations I saw some of May’s paintings displayed in Orchard House the historic home in Massachusetts devoted to the family’s history As I recognized May’s talent I wondered why Louisa downplayed her dedication in the portrait of a young artist in her novel I hope you’ll read LITTLE WOMAN IN BLUE and cheer for the sister who never stopped believing she deserved to have both romance and creative work May you find joy in love and work too Jeannine Atkins

Little Woman in BlueShe succeed And if she does what price will she have to pay Based on May Alcott’s letters and diaries as well as memoirs written by her neighbors Little Woman in Blue puts May at the center of the story she might have told about sisterhood and rivalry in an extraordinary family. AAGH I have not yet read this book but I really want to so I had meant to mark it as to read on Goodreads but I was using my iPad instead of my laptopand I just realized today that it had somehow been marked as read and with a rating of 2 stars I have NO idea how that happened but I am horribly embarrassed about it Going to go hide in a corner of shame now
