Alcott's enchanting debut novel Written in 1849, when Louisa May Alcott was just seventeen years old, The Inheritanceis the captivating tale of Edith Adelon, an impoverished Italian orphan who innocently wields the charms of virtue, beauty, and loyalty to win her true birthright. A long lost letter reveals her secret inheritance, nothing less than the English estate on which she is a paid companion. But Edith is loath to claim it - for more important to her by far are the respect and affection of her wealthy patrons, and the love of a newfound friend, the kind and noble Lord Percy. Her first novel shows a young Alcott writing under the influence of the gothic romances and sentimental novels of her day. In their introduction, Professors Myerson and Shealy, who recovered Alcott's unpublished manuscript, explore how her unconventional upbringing and early literary influences shaped The Inheritance, and consider it in the light of her mature style, particularly that of her classic, Little Women. Edited with an Introduction and Notes by JOEL MYERSON and DANIEL SHEALY… (mere)

Written when LMA was 17 as if she had the worldly experience of a 13 year old with no sense of humor. She tells and tells and shows and tells and tells and shows some more and the whole thing is so loaded with pure, virtuous, self sacrifice it would sink in a pool of mercury. Oh and the heroine does get the guy, so much for LMA persusing a different sort of ending. ( )

the writing was too florid for my taste... tender glances, noble hearts... but you can see the potential of a great writer in this first unpublished work. ( )

It's a fun thought that this book only was 'discovered' and published in my lifetime, despite the fact that it was Louisa May Alcott's very first novel, written while she was a teenager. Actually, comparing this novel to the romances and romantic thrillers I've been reading lately, Alcott's teenage novel writing is a bit stronger than that of many adult, professional, successfully published authors. The story is pretty basic, but then again a lot of books from this era about women follow a similar formulaic plot- boy meets poor but beautiful girl, boy falls for poor but beautiful girl, girl falls for boy but can't admit it for reasons, reasons evaporate, boy gets girl. It's maybe not great literature, but a lot of what is mistaken for great literature is not. Readers who enjoy other books by Louisa May Alcott, Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters, should probably plan to read this book and add it to their bookshelves. ( )

Being an avid reader, a lot of people assume that I have read a lot of books, and that is a wonderful assumption and it is pretty much true but what they are thinking is that I have read a lot of the classic books. Anything by Jane Austin, Dickins, Orwell, Bronte... just to name a few. The true is, I have never gotten into those books, they were forced on students when I was in school and I hate reading because I have to. So I don't have a lot of knowledge when it comes to the "classics". I am fine with that. Where is this going.... well that means I have never read anything by Louisa May Alcott - nope, no Little Women... sorry.

So as part of my library summer challenge we were told to read a LMA book and I chose a nice small one to start out with. The Inheritance is a very short, almost novella style book about a family and their many friends, about class and wealth, and about humility and virtue. It was very good. It was a realistic yet romanticized portrayal of the world the characters were living in. The writing itself is always what throws me when it comes to classics - they are very verbose. I like books that throw you into a plot and run with it, not just talk about it.

Overall, I enjoyed this book and I am very much happy that I have finally read something by this author but I think I will be happy returning to my modern YA and MG books for now.

It's sappy, sweet, and entirely unrealistic... but still, don't we all need something like this every once in a while. ( )

In a green park, where troops of bright-eyed deer lay sleeping under drooping trees and a clear lake mirrored in its bosom the flowers that grew upon its edge, there stood Lord Hamilton's stately home, half castle and half mansion.
