More About Louisa May Alcott

Louisa May Alcott Louisa May Alcott was born on November 29, 1832, in Germantown, Pennsylvania. Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson were family friends. Alcott wrote under various pseudonyms and only started using her own name when she was ready to commit to writing. Her novel "Little Women" gave Louisa May Alcott financial independence and a lifetime writing career. She died in 1888.

Early Life

Famed novelist Louisa May Alcott was born on November 29, 1832, in Germantown, Pennsylvania. Alcott was a best-selling novelist of the late 1800s, and many of her works, most notably Little Women, remain popular today.

Alcott was taught by her father, Amos Bronson Alcott, until 1848, and studied informally with family friends such as Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Theodore Parker. Residing in Boston and Concord, Massachusetts, Alcott worked as a domestic servant and teacher, among other positions, to help support her family from 1850 to 1862. During the Civil War, she went to Washington, D.C. to work as a nurse.

Acclaimed Author

Unknown to most people, Louisa May Alcott had been publishing poems, short stories, thrillers, and juvenile tales since 1851, under the pen name Flora Fairfield. In 1862, she also adopted the pen name A.M. Barnard, and some of her melodramas were produced on Boston stages. But it was her account of her Civil War experiences, Hospital Sketches (1863), that confirmed Alcott's desire to be a serious writer. She began to publish stories under her real name in Atlantic Monthly and Lady's Companion, and took a brief trip to Europe in 1865 before becoming editor of a girls' magazine, Merry's Museum.

The great success of Little Women (1869–70) gave Alcott financial independence and created a demand for more books. Over the final years of her life, she turned out a steady stream of novels and short stories, mostly for young people and drawn directly from her family life. Her other books include Little Men (1871), Eight Cousins (1875) and Jo's Boys (1886). Alcott also tried her hand at adult novels, such as Work (1873) and A Modern Mephistopheles (1877), but these tales were not as popular as her other writings.

Louisa May Alcott lived in Germantown. Louisa May Alcott was born in 1832 and died in 1888.

Review of "Rose in Bloom"  Aug 28, 2008
I received the book in a timely manner. The book was in the
condition advertised.
"To other roses getting ready to bloom."  Jun 20, 2008
A friend of mine highly recommended this book, and since I had already read "Eight Cousins" (which I didn't particularly care for, at the time,) I decided to give "Rose in Bloom" a try. What a pleasant surprise! I adored it so much that after reading it, I went back and re-read "Eight Cousins." (I would warn readers that while the plot isn't that complicated, don't read this book until you've read "Eight Cousins." Knowing the characters from the first book makes the sequel so much more enjoyable.)

Returning to America after two years of absence, Rose soon discovers that a lot has changed while she was away. Not only is 19 year old Rose now old enough to inherit her parents' money, but she's also at a marriageable age. What's a young, rich and pretty girl to do? Of course her guardian, Uncle Alec, is there to give advice or lend a listening ear. And, of course, her boy cousins have turned into young men. The bookworm, Mac, still isn't "polite and sensible like Archie, nor gay and handsome like Prince Charlie, nor neat and obliging like Steve, nor amusing like the `Brats,' nor confiding and affectionate like little Jamie," but nevertheless, I like him the best. He is sensible and intelligent, unlike Cousin Charlie, who is as good looking and charming as he is reckless. Rose tries to improve Charlie's morals and Mac's manners; all while learning what it means to live a wise and honorable life.

This is a delightful book! It made me smile, laugh, cry and fall in love. More than that, it inspired me, as I think it should all young women, to live life to the best of my ability. As Louisa May Alcott states in her preface: "Rose is not designed for a model girl, and the sequel was simply written in fulfillment of a promise, hoping to afford some amusement, and perhaps here and there a helpful hint, to other roses getting ready to bloom."
Better than I expected!  Sep 8, 2007
The book arrived my home on time. Same as the estimated arrival date when I bought it. Also, the book was perfectly protected. Nothing was damaged during transportation. I am really glad with it. For sure, I will buy something through this site in the future!
First Cousins, a flawed romance  Aug 20, 2007
Eight Cousins This novel is a sequel to a very nice book for young people.This book is a well written 19th century romance by a classic author.Even with some tragedy , it is still artificially sweet by literary realism standards of today. The romance is marred by the modern genetics of recessive trait doubling in which, practically, first cousins shouldn't marry and have a family. The romance is nice in which the geek wins out by becoming a doctor and a poet.
It Only Gets Better  May 11, 2006
If Eight Couisins was great, Rose In Bloom is classic! I left the child-hood friends in great anticipation of meeting them again as adults. At the same time, however, I felt an ominous sense of foreboding. . . Would Charlie and Mac ruin their friendship in vieing for their sweet cousin's hand? I could not imagine Mac striving with anyone over anything. So . . . what then? Would the romantic and debonair Charlie simply sweep Rose off her feet, while Mac stands in the background and sighs with dissapiontment? No. That didn't seem to fit, either. As it turned out, the good and noble Mac did win Rose's heart over his hansome and undiciplined cousin. I - like Rose - first fell in love with "the Prince". And like her, I came to see, through tragic circumstances, what true love really means. . . finding someone you can look up to, instead of lift up.
