The Other Alcott
by Elise Hooper
Praise For This Book:
"Hooper is especially good at depicting the complicated blend of devotion and jealousy so common among siblings... a lively, entertaining read." - Kirkus

"A fascinating concept, and just the way to kick off your celebration of the 150th anniversary of the publication of Little Women." - Historical Novel Society

"[...] this title is not to be missed by the classic's many fans who will want to get an insider's look at the real people who inspired the March family." - Library Journal

"More than ever, we need books like this - in celebration of a woman overlooked by history, one whose story helps shed light on our own contemporary search for love, identity and meaning." - Tara Conklin, New York Times bestselling author of The House Girl

"To read this book is to understand why the women behind Little Women continue to cast a long shadow our imaginations and dreams. Hooper is a writer to watch!" - Elisabeth Egan, author of A Window Opens

"In The Other Alcott, Elise Hooper has crafted a sweeping and deeply personal tale [...] You will never look at Little Women or the Alcott family the same way again." - Laurie Lico Albanese , author of Stolen Beauty

"An atmospheric and engaging read, The Other Alcott widens the Alcott family spotlight to position the charismatic, artistic May as a rightful equal to famed Louisa. Hooper skillfully draws the reader into the complicated, competitive dynamic between two sisters determined to master their work and love each other." - Joy Callaway, author of The Fifth Avenue Artists Society and Secret Sisters
