Katie's Cup Book Club

Stylish, outgoing, creative, May Alcott grows up longing
to experience the wide world beyond Concord. While
her sister Louisa crafts stories, May is a talented and
dedicated artist, one who takes lessons in Boston, turns
down a marriage proposal from a well-off suitor, and
faces scorn for entering what is very much a man’s

When Louisa’s Little Women is published, its success
eases the family’s financial burdens they have been
facing for so many years. Everyone agrees the novel is
charming, but May is struck to the core by the portrayal
of the selfish, spoiled “Amy March.” Is this what her
beloved sister really thinks of her?
So May embarks on a quest to discover her true identity,
as an artist and a woman. From Boston to Rome,
London, and Paris, this brave and determined soul forges
an amazing life of her own, making her so much more
than merely “The Other Alcott.”
