What a marvelous job Susan Cheever does of unearthing all the interesting facts and juxtaposing them, so they tell the fascinating story of the American literary stars of mid 19th century Concord and how they intermingled and affected each other. Louisa May Alcott, Hawthorne, Emerson, Thoreau and Margaret Fuller were part of that explosion of ideas and an intellectual community which occurs every so often in history and bequeaths us such a rich literary heritage. I am itching to read again all those works, taking in the context of the real writers Cheever so masterfully describes. ~ Reviewed by Karen Frank
