** spoiler alert ** I really enjoyed a Long Fatal Love Chase. You can tell it is the same author of Little Women. At the beginning on one chapter, the description of the carriage going down the street at Nice is exactly idential of the description of when Laurie first appears at Nice spotting Amy in her carriage in Little Women. The main character Rose, has the description of Amy but the free will and determination of Joe.
It also somewhat reminds me of Jane Eyre with the determined, mysterious, powerful, older gentleman that makes it his priority to succeed young free willed women into loving him when in all actuality he is hiding a secret. (In both cases, the secret is a previous still intact marriage to other woman which they no longer love). Both stories the man breaks the young womans heart, both women flee to other men and harder lives (even has religious references the same), but the difference holds in the ending of the two stories.
