|Description:||Novel for March: March by Geraldine Brooks
Synopsis from Goodreads: Acclaimed author Geraldine Brooks gives us the story of the absent father from Little Women - and conjures a world of brutality, stubborn courage, and transcendent love.
An idealistic abolitionist, March has gone as chaplain to serve the Union cause. But the war tests his faith not only in the Union - which is also capable of barbarism and racism - but in himself. As he recovers from a near-fatal illness, March must reas-semble and reconnect with his family, who have no idea of what he has endured.
A love story set in a time of catastrophe, March explores the passions between a man and a woman, the tenderness of parent and child, and the life-changing power of an ardently held belief.
