March by Geraldine Brooks

I really enjoyed another of Geraldine Brooks' books (People of the Book), and I liked the premise of March, so I had high expectations for this book and wasn't disappointed. This book is about Mr. March, the absent father from Louisa May Alcott's Little Women, who enlisted in the Union army, where his idealism runs into the reality of war. The book was engaging and well-written.
