Louisa May Alcott was one of the most successful and bestselling authors of her day, earning more than any of her male contemporaries. Her classic Little Women has been a mainstay of American literature since its release nearly 150 years ago, as Jo March and her calm, beloved “Marmee” have shaped and inspired generations of young women. Biographers have consistently attributed Louisa’s uncommon success to her father, Bronson Alcott, assuming that this outspoken idealist was the source of his daughter’s progressive thinking and remarkable independence.
But in this riveting dual biography, award-winning biographer Eve LaPlante explodes these myths, drawing from a trove of surprising new documents to show that it was Louisa’s actual “Marmee,” Abigail May Alcott, who formed the intellectual and emotional center of her world. Abigail, whose difficult life both inspired and served as a warning to her devoted daughters, pushed Louisa to excel at writing and to chase her unconventional dreams in a male-dominated world.
In this groundbreaking work, LaPlante paints an exquisitely moving and utterly convincing portrait of a woman decades ahead of her time, and the fiercely independent daughter whose life was deeply entwined with her mother’s dreams of freedom. This gorgeously written story of two extraordinary women is guaranteed to transform our view of one of America’s most beloved authors.
Eve LaPlante is the author of Seized, American Jezebel, and Salem Witch Judge, the winner of the 2008 Massachusetts Book Award for Nonfiction. She is also the editor of a collection of Abigail May Alcott's private papers. She lives with her family in New England.

According literal human history -- it was only by happen stance, which causes Homo sapiens sapiens to be on earth. Until this day every sign that one can see relating to human purpose, is on point with what history tells us. Why the Gods created intelligent hybrid primitive workers, and that they should be fruitful and multiply. What sense does it make to believe in a 1700 year old spurious criminal bible, that in total lies about authentic origin of intelligent people. It must be that the compilers of the genesis creation story, wanted to reduce the intelligence of the rising world population of humans-- and to make few people have control and rule over them. It is impossible for such unintelligent written anthology, which they call the holy bible, to be viable for human comsumption. It cannot and should not, be accepted as truth, not when history itself, has proven that it is a book which palpably replace fact with fantasy. History said that the god Enki summoned and asked the goddess, the midwife of the gods, the wise birthgiver, to create Primitive Workes, through fertilization in vitro--in glass tubes.
poems, words to inspire and the enthusiasm of new doula Cat LaPlante. We frame a quick dialogue with resources from the Annie E. Casey Foundation on children's poverty and the deep hope of peace from Jean Shinola Bolen.
