Little Woman in Blue by Jeannie Atkins. Published by She Writes Press

I spent hours reading Little Women as a child and loved all the characters except spoiled Amy. In this story readers hear from the real Amy, or May. In real life, May was horrified to read her sister’s depiction of her as the vain and selfish Amy. The only similarity was May’s love of art. During the Civil War, May worked making shirts for Union soldiers, dreaming of a life filled with true love and her aspirations to became a great artist. After the book is published, May plans to leave her home in Massachusetts and move far away to accomplish her goals and prove her famous sister wrong. A fascinating peek at one of literature’s most maligned characters
