An Old-fashioned Girl

by Louisa May Alcott

This book is very well written and the characters well-developed and consistent in their actions. The story is constructed so that my mind is transported into the scenes.

I always consider LM Alcott as a sort of anthropological freeze-frame on middle-class life in the period around the Civil War. It is a pleasant way to while away a few hours.

Author of the Day

Michael Maxwell
When Micheal Maxwell isn't travelling the world with his wife, you are most likely to find him somewhere between Central Valley and the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. If you do, and you have a chat with this interesting man, take care - you might just end up in a scene of one of his books! Maxwell loves writing character-driven mysteries about everyday people, books with heart that readers can relate to. In this interview, Maxwell reveals how Diamonds and Cole was inspired by a song, how he created Cole Sage and talks about his writing habits.
