A Book Recommendation:

March by Geraldine Brooks

This is a wonderfully written fascinating story of a marriage coming of age as well as a man. She takes the minor character of the father in Louisa May Alcott's Little Women and tells his story. It has made it's way onto my "best books shelf" I don't own it yet, but will. His story is one of a idealism that is shattered by war and takes us to the brink of the steps to move beyond it. Poignant. If you get a chance read it! I'd love to know what you think.
