Elise Hooper’s debut novel conjures the fascinating, untold story of May Alcott—Louisa’s youngest sister and an artist in her own right.
Eclipsed by her sister’s literary triumph in 1868, May Alcott, the youngest of the Alcott sisters, sets out to pursue her own career as a painter. May’s quest for her own identity and success takes her from Boston to Rome, London, and Paris and eventually puts her on a collision course with her famous older sister, Louisa.
