"Written in 1866, this heretofore undiscovered gem by the author of Little Women tells the story of Rosamund Vivian, an intelligent, strong-willed, 18-year-old young woman who longs for adventure. But when she marries a wealthy, jaded young man, and is swept off to Europe, Rosamund too soon learns that her new husband is not as he had presented himself. First serial to Ladies' Home Journal. / Louisa May Alcott was born in 1832 in Pennsylvania and grew up in Concord, Massachusetts. She is best known for her books for children. The daughter of philosopher and reformer Amons Bronson Alcott, she was also a supporter of women's rights and an abolitionist. Family debts led her to write the autobiographical novel Little Women (1868). The book was a huge success, followed by Little Men, An Old-Fashioned Girl, and several other novels."-Publisher.
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.
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.
