March (Thistle No. 481) - Geraldine Brooks (Braille)
How many of us have read, often reread 'Little Women' and wondered about the father? Amy, Beth and Jo are very much a part of our literary lives, but Pere March is missing.
Now, thanks to the imaginative pen of Geraldine Brooks we meet and come to know the man. Captain March has gone to serve the Union forces, bolstered by his faith and high ideals. He's ill prepared to find himself amidst carnage and cruelty. He is assigned to teach on a plantation where he meets once again a beautiful slave whom he had known before his marriage.
