I enjoyed this book a great deal. Ms. Atkins took the liberty of fleshing out certain characters who before either had no life or were pretty two-dimensional. One of those characters was the tragic son (William) of Charles Lane, the money and one of the minds behind Fruitlands (along with Bronson Alcott). William deserved a life and Atkins gave him one. She also made saintly Anna, Louisa May Alcott's older sister, seem more like a regular young girl, competitive with her sister, even catty at times. Much more fleshed out.

The whole idea of Fruitlands is exceedingly complex and Atkins did a very good job of explaining it in simple and concise terms that anyone could understand.

One episode in the book felt too "current" and frankly, a little too grown-up for children's reading, thus the reason for only 4 stars.

Otherwise, very entertaining and informative book!
