My Heart is Boundless.
Edited by Eve LaPlante. The real Marmee left a collection of letters and diaries that were discovered by her biographer and great-niece Eva LaPlante. She found that Alcott's mother was not the meek housewife history may portray. Reading her words, we find a strong, wise woman who encouraged her daughters to learn to support themselves. She dreamed of female independence. Free Press, 2012. Paper. NEW. $10.00
