teaser tuesdayTeaser Tuesdays (Hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading) is here again. I'm still reading Angelology and used the title last week. I loving it! So, I will grap some some lines from one of the books I received yesterday.

The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott"It was a brisk autumn day and the platform was blustery. Louisa felt the skirts of her slim black dress swirl around the ankle boots, the pair she'd had for years, the pair she'd worn in Rome in the cathedrals, in Nice, in the parlor of the Paris inn where she'd shared wine with a Polish revolutionary as he described the deaths of all his friends.'' -- The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly O'Connor McNees, April 2010

Deftly mixing fact and fiction, Kelly O'Connor McNees imagines a love affair that would threaten Louisa's writing career-and inspire the story of Jo and Laurie in Little Women. Stuck in small-town New Hampshire in 1855, Louisa finds herself torn between a love that takes her by surprise and her dream of independence as a writer in Boston. The choice she must make comes with a steep price that she will pay for the rest of her life. -- publisher description
