A Long Fatal Love Chase: "Racy" fiction from Louisa May Alcott!

A Long Fatal Love ChaseA Long Fatal Love Chase by Louisa May Alcott

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

At the time I read this (way before I read The Glory Cloak),I had no idea that Alcott wrote this type of novel; apparently it was deemed too racy to publish during her life. Spunky heroine ends up with an abusive, sadistic older man, and she runs away from him. He's determined not to let her get away. Tragedy in the end, as many of these types of books are.
