In Stores Now and GIVEAWAY of The Lost Summer of Louisa May by Kelly O’Connor McNees

"Fall in love all over again with the author of Little Women! I wanted to bring to your attention THE LOST SUMMER OF LOUISA MAY ALCOTT by Kelly O’Connor McNees which is new in paperback as of today"!

"In the bestselling tradition of Loving Frank and March comes a novel for anyone who loves Little Women.
Millions of readers have fallen in love with Little Women. But how could Louisa May Alcott-who never had a romance-write so convincingly of love and heart-break without experiencing it herself?

Deftly mixing fact and fiction, Kelly O'Connor McNees imagines a love affair that would threaten Louisa's writing career-and inspire the story of Jo and Laurie in Little Women. Stuck in small-town New Hampshire in 1855, Louisa finds herself torn between a love that takes her by surprise and her dream of independence as a writer in Boston. The choice she must make comes with a steep price that she will pay for the rest of her life"

"In THE LOST SUMMER OF LOUISA MAY ALCOTT, McNees seamlessly weaves fact with fiction as she imagines the love and loss that Louisa May Alcott might have experienced in the summer of 1855, a summer marked by a secret lover affair that would come to be the inspiration for Jo and Laurie in Little Women. This vivid historical novel opens as twenty-two year old Louisa has just moved to a small town in New Hampshire. Determined to pursue her passion for writing, Louisa finds herself in a compromised position when she meets Joseph Singer whom she quickly falls in love with".

Rooted in historical fact and celebrating Alcott’s great legacy, the hardcover edition of THE LOST SUMMER OF LOUISA MAY ALCOTT (Putnam 4/10) received fabulous reviews from Library Journal, Bookpage as well as the Washington Post. Library Journal states that “McNees deftly combines historic figures and documented aspects of Louisa’s life with speculations about what might have been. Fans of Little Women may be first in line to read the novel, but the book will also appeal to others who enjoy historical romance.”
