Maureen Corrigan's top ten books of 2012

For National Public Radio, Maureen Corrigan named her top ten books of 2012.

One title on the list:
Marmee & Louisa: The Untold Story of Louisa May Alcott and Her Mother by Eve LaPlante

Louisa May Alcott's siblings didn't share her literary gifts, but her supportive mother, Abigail, was an evocative writer, as well as a campaigner for abolition and women's rights. Marmee & Louisa is the title of Eve LaPlante's marvelous new dual biography of the hard-working mother-daughter pair.
