A Long Fatal Love Chase by Louisa May Alcott. I really liked this book. Lately I've been reading a lot of novels by female authors. It helps me understand women. :) Take this passage for example:

"Surprise and emotion left Rosamond no power to answer for a moment. The delicate generosity and respect of the offer touched her to the heart. Putting aside all he could give, rank, wealth protection, honor, and with no hint of her poverty, friendliness or shadow on his life, he had offered the one gift made both equal, his love, and sued for hers as humbly as if she were a princess of the land. Such things win women..."

This book is especially interesting to me because it was never published in the author's life time. It was rejected, apparently because it was too sensational and outrageous at the time (1866). It lay buried for more than 100 years, but was then discovered and published in 1995 and became a New York Times Bestseller. Note: you can buy this book from Amazon by clicking this link:
A Long Fatal Love Chase.

TIP: when you get to the Amazon website, you can search for a phrase like say "Such things win women." and then you read a new pages of the book to check it out.

NOTE: Louisa May also wrote the famous and hugely successful Little Women two years after writing A Long Fatal Love Chase.
