Review: MARCH by Geraldine Brooks

Scrappy Cat read and reviewed March by Geraldine Brooks for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011.  Here’s an excerpt:

This is the story of Mr. March, the father in Little Women, who was a chaplain for the North during the Civil War.  He was a very idealistic man, and went to war to support his anti-slavery convictions.  Once he got to war, he became disillusioned, not about the cause, but about how blurred the lines were between right and wrong, good and evil.  I enjoyed this book much more than Little Women, in large part because the characters felt more real to me (ie, not perfect but flawed, with real feelings and emotions).
