"Brilliant...Geraldine Brooks' new novel, March, is a very great book....Brooks has magnificently wielded the novelist's license."--Beth Kephart, Chicago Tribune "A beautifully wrought story....Gripping....A taut plot, vivid characters and provocative issues."--Heller McAlpin, Los Angeles Times Book Review "Honorable, elegant and true."--John Freeman, The Wall Street Journal "Harrowing and moving...In her previous book, Year of Wonders, Geraldine Brooks proved herself to be a wonderful novelist. March has all the same virtues...casting a spell that lasts much longer than the reading of it."--Karen Joy Fowler, The Washington Post World "Wholly original...deeply engaging."--Ron Charles, The Christian Science Monitor "Inspired... A disturbing, supple, and deeply satisfying story, put together with craft and care and imagery worthy of a poet."--The Cleveland Plain Dealer "Louisa May Alcott would be well pleased."--The Economist
