Louisa May Alcott's first novel, written when she was 17 but not published until long after her death in 1988.
Influenced by the melodrama of the contemporary theater and the popular gothic novels of the time, Louisa May Alcott weaves a tale far removed from the reality of her everyday life in Boston. With a charm reminiscent of Jane Austen's novels, The Inheritance sets love and courtesy against depravity and dishonor--and with the help of a secret inheritance, allows virtue to prevail.
