    Six years before she wrote Little Women, and in financial straits, Louisa May Alcott entered "Pauline's Passion and Punishment, " a novelette, in a newspaper contest. Not only did it win the $100 prize, but, published anonymously, it marked the first of the series of "blood & thunder tales" that would provide her livelihood for years. For as she said, "They are easy to 'compoze' & are better paid than moral...works." The gruesome, passionate stories reveal a darker side of Alcott. Published anonymously or under the ... Show more

Review on "Rose in Bloom"

by PaulaV on Jan 17, 2008

This is a delightful book! A merry & warm-hearted heroine, Rose is easy to love. If you don't mind a bit of old-fashioned moralising you'll come to the end feeling inspired to make your life count, as Rose does. If you admired Charlie in "Eight Cousins" the book may be a tear-jerker. If you liked Mac you'll be cheering. Although Alcott did a fantastic job, there are just a few things I would've liked to have seen different. 1) Charlie's fate seemed so severe. He was so gorgeous & gallant in his own way, I don't know how LMA had the heart to write as she did. I would've preferred Rose to begin falling for Mac while Charlie was still around. It would've been poetic justice to see the conceited "Prince" get egg on his face as his nerdy cousin won her heart right under his nose. 2) I would've liked to have read a sample of Mac's poetry myself, but perhaps after building him up as so brilliant, Alcott felt she couldn't deliver the goods. Anyway, I loved this book and as I was an admirer of his in "Eight Cousins" I was pleased to see the right man win her heart in the end.
