This is the sort of novel Professor Bhaer warned Jo March NOT to write. That said, I found it a delightfully melodramatic romance in the traditional sense of the word, filled with real suspense. A true page-turner.

What an intriguing title!
This if one of the greatest suspense/love stories ever. Amazing and the language of the time - the way the author wrote, her style so romantic and engaging. Could hardly put the book down. I've listened to the the audio cassette of this book a dozen times. It is a fantastic story. It has a heartbreaking end as foretold by the title - but what drama, suspense, and emotions. Ignatius - if only I could meet you in real life! Even the villain of the story could have been played by Clark Gable! And Rosamund, fair Rose - could a woman like this really exist - beautiful in spirit, soul, and body. I look forward to reading more of Lousia May Alcott's books. This one was far ahead of her time.
