About the Author

American novelist Louisa May Alcott is best known for her classic coming-of-age novel Little Women, and its sequels Little Men and Jo s Boys. The daughter of noted transcendentalist and educator Amos Bronson Alcott and Abigail May Alcott, Alcott was an active abolitionist and feminist, and the first woman registered to vote in Concord, Massachusetts. Schooled mainly by her father, Alcott and her three sisters also received lessons from such notables as Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Margaret Fuller. Alcott penned her first book, Flower Fables, for Emerson s daughter, Ellen. Before gaining critical success for her children s fiction, Alcott wrote several passionate adult novels using the pen name A. M. Barnard, including A Long Fatal Love Chase and Punishment. Alcott s literary career spanned more than 40 years, and she wrote more than 30 books before her death in 1888. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Format: Kindle Edition
This was a surprising read for me; like the first reviewer, I was unaware that Alcott ever wrote this type of story. I found it fascinating that the story premise was timeless....human nature being what it is. Early on, you know what the central character is up to, but you are lured along to see both how it's done and will the various deceptions work.....will Jean ever get tripped up in the cruel mess of that tangled web she keeps weaving? Her deception is not without aim, but just where is it aimed? You believe you know, but then it takes another direction.
It was a pleasant satisfying read and a happy find that I recommend to other chic lit/women's classics readers. If there were half stars, I would probably give it 3 & 1/2 stars, but 3 is too low.
