Behind A Mask; or, A Woman's Power (1866) by L. M. Alcott, written under her pseudonym, A. M. Barnard, is the story of a woman, struggling to survive in a world dominated by men. Jean Muir, the central character of the story, performs various roles, as a governess, an actress, and an engaged woman, and is ready to lose some, or even all her integrity and identity, in order to achieve her goals. A tale of romance and betrayal, it also brings out the women's issues in the patriarchal and deceptive society.
