> La Solitude du docteur March, de Geraldine Brooks
Dans ce roman-fleuve, qui est aussi un jeu de piste littéraire, Geraldine Brooks a eu la bonne idée de faire vivre de nouvelles aventures au héros des Quatre Filles du docteur March.
Dans ce roman-fleuve, qui est aussi un jeu de piste littéraire, Geraldine Brooks a eu la bonne idée de faire vivre de nouvelles aventures au héros des Quatre Filles du docteur March, le livre cultissime de Louisa May Alcott. Elle imagine la jeunesse de March au mitan du XIXe siècle, ses déambulations de colporteur, son séjour dans une plantation dirigée par un champion de l'esclavagisme, puis son retour dans le Massachusetts où il épousera Marmee et veillera sur ses quatre filles légendaires, avant de plonger dans l'enfer de la guerre de Sécession, aux côtés des abolitionnistes. Souffle épique, scénario à rebondissements, ce roman possède le panache des grandes sagas à l'américaine, ce qui lui a valu le prix Pulitzer en 2006. --L'Express

Really I give it 3.5 stars. Most of the book is in Mr. March (the absent father in Little Women--based on Bronson Alcott)voice; a small section at the end is told from Marmee's point of view.

The story follows March's experience in the Civil War (as imagined by Brooks), and his trying to come to terms with his involvement with John Brown, and what is responsibility is in terms of fighting slavery.

I liked reading about his and Marmee's life, as that is seen in Little Women purely through the eyes of Jo--it's interesting to imagine them as adults. In Little Women, it was often mentioned that Marmee had to work very hard to control her temper--but that was always hard for me to believe. In 'March' you get a picture of a young woman driven by her involvement in the abolition movement. And here, it was a little hard for me to believe that she was as temperamental as she's portrayed.

From Louisa May Alcott's beloved classic Little Women, Geraldine Brooks has animated the character of the absent father, March, and crafted a story "filled with the ache of love and marriage and with the power of war upon the mind and heart of one unforgettable man"

[This is a review I wrote in 2008]

**Couldn't put it down!**

What a great story! 'March' is really well-written and researched and fills a neat gap in US Civil War literature.

'March' is the story of the girls' father in Louisa May Alcott's 'Little Women'. In 'Little Women' the girls' father is absent throughout the novel as he is away at war, and Geraldine Brooks has picked up on this thread and woven a wonderfully inspirational novel around the story of Mr. March. Through it she tests out the theme of the morality of war which works ok with the causes of the US Civil War, and re-integration into a normal existence after war - another sensitive subject.

March is an abolitionist and goes to serve for the Union cause as an army chaplain. He joins up in a moment of town fervour, only to find that he cannot join with his fellow townspeople and is left to find his way amongst strangers from another regiment. The writing - predominantly from March's point of view - varies between letters home to Marmee and recollections of earlier times, and stories he wouldn't consider writing about to Marmee and the girls.

It's very sympathetically written and you can't help but be affected by March's journey through the landscape of war. The book doesn't impinge on 'Little Women' until right at the very end when March returns home, so there's no overlap with the all-time classic by Louisa May Alcott, and it complements 'Little Women' really well. Can't recommend it enough! ( )

I had this book on my bookshelf, most probably from 2008- 2009 (wow, ten years ago). The truth I started it, but for some reason, put it down. I have trouble with small books. They take me a long time to read them. Well, for some reason, it got out of its place on the bookshelf and on to my hands, and I absolutely loved it.
Maybe because Little Women by Louisa May Alcott was the book that I read at the age of 8 and loved it from cover to cover, Geraldine Brooks, takes his missing father, Mr. March, from Alcott's story builds his story before the civil war & during the civil war. It is a very thought-provoking book that talks about slavery, about the war, about the dilemma of going to war and killing people for liberating slaves legitimate. What will happen to those slaves that are free? Will they have the same rights and status as the liberators.
During the Little Women, the March family gets a telegraph that Mr. March is gravely sick, and Marmee March goes to Washington to see him. This part of the book is also part of this book, and the point of you on this part is Mrs. March.
This book is a book for all ages, people who loved Little Women, who love thought-provoking books. I absolutely loved the book and the writing. I don't understand why it took so long to finish this book, but I am glad that it is my first 5-star book for 2018.
I have another book of Geraldine Broos' book on my bookshelf bought at the same time as March, and I am for sure to read it this year. I think I found a new favorite author for me. ( )

Brooks is capable of strong writing about the natural world and nicely researched effects about the human one (on the eve of a battle, March sees ''the surgeon flinging down sawdust to receive the blood that was yet to flow''), but the book she has produced makes a distressing contribution to recent trends in historical fiction, which, after a decade or so of increased literary and intellectual weight, seems to be returning to its old sentimental contrivances and costumes.
 
Fascinating insight, don’t read if you’re a Little Women purist.

Jo said sadly, "We haven't got father, and shall not have him for a long time." She didn't say "perhaps never," but each silently added it, thinking of father far away, where the fighting was. ======= Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

I am no longer eager, bold & strong.
All that is past;
I am ready not to do
At last, at last,
My half day's work is done,
And this is all my part.
I give a patient God
My patient heart.

(attributed to Cephas White- composed by an unnamed patient of Louisa May Alcott - transcribed in a letter to her aunt that is held among the rare manuscripts in the Library of Congress).
