Author Discovered

I've discovered a new author (for me) of historical fiction: Geraldine Brooks. I read "People of the Book" first which was an intriguing account of how an ancient Jewish illuminated manuscript came into existence and was saved from destruction through out history. Now I'm reading "March" an account of Louisa May Alcott's father's experience during the Civil War with flash backs to other times in his life. Fascinating!

I just finished reading March! I'd love to know what you think about it. I'm planning to read People of the Book soon, too. Are you on Goodreads?
