The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott – now in paperback & giveaway!

If you’ve been reading my blog, you probably know that I loved The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly O’Connor McNees. In fact, I loved it so much that it was my pick of the month last April. Since she’s local, Kelly also wrote me a guest post about Haunted Chicago History during my Chicago Author Month last October.

Since Kelly is now my own personal Louisa May Alcott expert, Nicole and I also had her on to talk with us about Louisa and Little Women for our most recent episode of What’s Old is New.

I know not everyone is able to get to books in hardcover, but now The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott is in paperback!

    Yay! I read this one around Christmastime and really enjoyed it. Good luck, everyone!

  • I really loved this book, too! McNees did a great job blending fact and fiction – hope the paperback release and giveaway brings plenty of new people to enjoy it as well!

  • I was surprised how much I liked this book. And how much I didn’t like Bronson Alcott (I wonder how much of his character was based on fact). Good luck to everyone in the giveaway.

    • Pretty much his entire character, from what I can tell. I specifically asked Kelly to give us some detail about Bronson on the podcast, if you’re interested in knowing more.

  • I THINK it was this book that was narrated by a preferred narrator of mine (can’t exactly remember who…maybe the girl that narrated Revolution?) so I need to see if I can get my hands on that.

    • P.S. Yes, it was the same woman who narrated Revolution (Emily Janice Card). Incredible. I just ordered this on audio.

    I loved this book. I love the cover of the paperback.

    I read this last winter and loved finding another glimpse into Louisa’s development and story. Thanks!

  • Ooh, I hadn’t heard about this book. I know I would love it. I went Orchard House in Concord, MA last Sept. I wanted to just sit at her desk where she wrote ‘Little Women’, and imagine her life ALL DAY.

  • I’ve been wanting to read this one but haven’t gotten around to it yet. Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

  • I’ve been dying to read this one!

  • I wish I would have known about your What’s Old is New podcast about Little Women. It is one of my top fav books of all time! I am definitely going to try to go back and listen to it.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Loved what I’ve seen of this book so far and the author’s clear affection for Louisa — as I’m a slavish LM Alcott fan myself (of both her and her books), I can’t wait to read this one. Thanks for the giveaway!
