The Darker Side of Lousia May Alcott!!!

If you read the novel, Little Women and you think you know Lousia May Alcott, think again! This book is not about a family of girls making homespun quilts! This is a suspense/thriller. With many tragic moments and unsettling events. A restless girl at the age of 18 desires to lead a romantic and adventureous life. The only problem is she is trapped with her grandfather in home with no visitors or diversions! Until one day a mysterious man comes to call. Our heroine finally escapes her grandfather's clutches and leaves with this mysterious man that she know very little about. She soon discovers she does not want this much adventure so she tries to escape. Will this man let her go? Does he love her? What does he want from her? It is so exciting and it was surprising that Louisa May Alcott could write such a book! If you enjoy a good gothic novel, that you can get wrapped up in, give this book a try. I highly recommend this book, you won't be able to have peace of mind until you finish it!

Breathtakingly romantic.

Romance, thrilling adventure, and true, gut-wrenching emotion-- this novel by Louisa May Alcott pushes the envelope. Tempest: a man ruled by passion, cruelty and deceit. Rosamond: a young woman, innocent, beautiful, and strong-willed. Tempest seduces fair Rosamond (and the reader) with his devastating charm, mystery, and dangerous good looks. When Rosamond learns of Tempest's treacherous secrets, she vows to escape from his lies. Unfortunately, Tempest is intrigued and further impassioned by the chase as he promises to win her back, at all costs. Determined to break her wild spirit, Tempest succeeds in alienating Rosamond from others. Despite some slow moments, this book is overflowing with action and excitement. The chase is an interesting one and the ending is thoroughly satisfying

"Riveting, Heart Pounding Reading"

This book is filled with heart pounding action that keeps you turning page after page. A story that may have been written a 100 years ago, but could have come from today's headlines. Louisa May Alcott was definately a woman before her time, and her style of writing in this book portrays this tremendously. She uses very detailed descriptions that upon reading brings images to mind. A definate must read for any Alcott fan, or for anyone that loves to have their imagination stimulated!
