March's Serendipity Book Club | A Long Fatal Love Chase ~ Day 49


We know her best for Little Women, but this month the Serendipity Book Club delves into another of Louisa May Alcott's books, "The Chase" or "A Long Fatal Love Chase" that was considered too sensational to publish in her time;

"I'd gladly sell my soul to Satan for a year of freedom, " cries impetuous Rosamond Vivian to her callous grandfather. Then, one stormy night, a brooding stranger appears in her remote island home, ready to take Rosamond at her word.

Spellbound by the mysterious Philip Tempest, Rosamond is seduced with promises of love and freedom, then spirited away on Tempest's sumptuous yacht. But she soon finds herself trapped in a web of intrigue, cruelty, and deceit.

Desperate to escape, she flees to Italy, France, and Germany, from Parisian garret to mental asylum, from convent to chateau, as Tempest stalks every step of the fiery beauty who has become his obsession.

If you too have your interest piqued, we welcome all to attend the Serendipity Book Club (RSVPs essential to 0403 597 479 or email

Details are below and we will be following this book with Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights in April but would like to include members book choices throughout the year and we'd love to hear some of your favourites.
