Free sample chapters from the new release novel The courtship of Jo March: a variation of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women.
Set in the 1870s, this re-imagining of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women is for all who have ever wondered how things might have worked out differently for the beloved March sisters - the life Beth might have led, the books Jo might have written, the friends they might have made, and the courtship that might have been...
Authoress Jo March has lost her elder sister Meg to matrimony. When the aristocratic Vaughns – elegant Kate, boisterous Fred, thoughtful Frank, and feisty Grace – re-enter their lives, it seems her younger sisters Beth and Amy, and even her closest friend Laurie, might soon follow suit.
Yet despite the efforts of her great-aunt March, Jo is determined not to give up her liberty for any mortal man. What else is a writer to do but secure music lessons for her dearest sister, and befriend aspirant journalist Tommy Chamberlain?
The Marches' neighbor Theodore “Laurie” Laurence was born with looks, talent, and wealth – and Jo is convinced he has a promising future in which she has no part. He is as stubborn as Jo, and has loved her for as long as anyone can remember. But what will win a woman who won’t marry for love or money?
