This is March not to be confused with THE March by Doctorow. I listened to Geraldine Brooks' Pulitzer prize-winning novel on cd. Who knew something more could be done with Alcott's classic Little Women? Brooks takes the perspective of Mr. March and suggests what his experiences might have been like while he was away from his little women. As with many characters of Civil War novels, March starts out quite naive with idealistic expectations and ends up wiser as well as a great deal sadder.
