Fat Cat swallows everything in sight, including the washlady and her washtub, a troop of soldiers and their swords, even a king and his elephant! But when Cat swallows Mouse and her sewing basket, that's the last straw. Tiny Mouse cuts to the heart of ....
Certain of the great roads going north out of London continue far into the country a sort of attenuated and interrupted spectre of a street, with great gaps in the building, but preserving the line. Here will be a group of shops, followed by a fenced field or paddock, and then a famous public-house, and then perhaps a market garden or a nursery garden, and then one large private house, and then another field and another inn, and so on.

A story of dark love and passionate obsession that was considered "too sensational" to be published in the author's lifetime, "A Long Fatal Love Chase" was written for magazine serialization in 1866, two years before the publication of "Little Women." Buried among Louisa May Alcott's papers for more than a century, its publication is a literary landmark--a novel that is bold, timeless, and mesmerizing."
Louisa May Alcott was born in 1832 in Pennsylvania and grew up in Concord, Massachusetts. She is best known for her books for children. The daughter of philosopher and reformer Amons Bronson Alcott, she was also a supporter of women's rights and an abolitionist. Family debts led her to write the autobiographical novel "Little Women" (1868). The book was a huge success, followed by "Little Men, An Old-Fashioned Girl, " and several other novels .""

"Sensational in every sense of the word: filled with exotic locations, lusty appetites and page-turning treachery."
"A tale of obsessive love, stalking and murder that seems ripped right off today's tabloids."
"Intriguing...Alcott's tale of obsession and sexual politics deepens our appreciation for her championing of women's rights and for her extraordinary storytelling skills."
"At its core, "Love Chase" showcases an alluring, inspiring, made-for-movies heroine."
"There's something utterly refreshing about getting a glimpse of Alcott letting her hair down... "Love Chase" gives us a glimpse of the wild, free creature Alcott the writer must have longed to be...the book is lively, so exuberant, and so naughty, reading it is like biting into a juicy peach."

My father was our fortress. Come hail, come storm, we felt secure and shielded against all odds in his comforting presence. He was positivity personified, and it would not be wrong to say that this force within him was aided by my mother's optimism, who always looked at the bright side of life. When life-partners are soul-mates, their home is nothing short of heaven. Who is talking about worldly gains! There are things that not all the wealth in the world can buy. I take pride in saying we had just that. Of course materialistic people may differ with my views because the present day cry is-money, money, and more money, and for good reasons too. I would not censure their outlook. However, I uphold the values handed down to us by my father and my mother too. My book comes in response to a promise i had made to myself in the year 2000 after father died. I had promised myself I would write a book about my father. I has been fourteen years since then!
