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.

The life of all humans has been attributed to the story of Adam our father and Eve our mother. We ask the question. Are those people or are they principle characters representing our mental makeup and how we are shaped in our thinking processes? Sigmund Freud and his associates or students were very apt about the brain of the humnan being and how thoughts transferred into actions. Keep an open mind as we travel this avenue in Getting to know the real YOU!

On the September 24, 2014 edition of "Nature Of Reality Radio" I welcome Eve Lorgen who is an author, hypnotherapist, and 20 year researcher in alien abductions, near death experiences, shamanic initiations, military abductions (milabs), mind control, spiritual warfare, psychic attacks, cult involvement and narcissistic abuse. Early on in her career counseling alien abductees, she discovered a plethora of unusual experiences that often accompanied those who reported alien encounters and milabs. The issue of mind control is central, and it is her belief that aliens (and incorporeal entities) are the master mind controllers behind secret government human agencies and black projects. The most prominent aspect of Eve’s consulting and support is with those who are experiencing some form of paranormal orchestrated love relationship issues, or what she calls “the love bite”.

Eve is a clairvoyant spiritual counselor who has been reading people and pets for over 30 years. Naturally intuitive she uses tarot cards, astrology and numerology to help pinpoint timelines and specifics in readings. Dream interpretation and working with crystals in healing are part of her background as well.
Relationships, love, family and career are all areas that she can help you with. Maybe you need a pick me up or just a peek at what is coming up, Eve can give you that glimpse into your future.
