Book of the Week #20

Under the Lilacs by Louisa May Alcott (Little, Brown Young Readers, 1996; first published 1878)

New Hampshire lilacs, which have been beautiful this spring, are said to have been the inspiration for this book. Alcott lived in Walpole, New Hampshire between 1855 and 1857.

Thanks to David Lazar of the NH Troubadour for telling me about the Granite State connection of one of my favorite authors!
