This book was lovely. If you enjoyed Eight Cousins there is a good chance you will enjoy this too.

I haven't read Eight Cousins, but I would love to. Normally, I don't go for books with mush in it, but this is a classic and written by one of my favourite authors, so I figured it would be OK. It was sad when one of the cousins - it's been a while since I've read this book - dies. I was shocked when I found out it was damaged in the flood, too. But, Rose still lives on.

A lesser sequel to the lively _8 Cousins_. Alcott can't resist using the Campbells to voice her own religious and moral views: Rose spends 2 years in Paris without succumbing to the temptations of a fashionable dress, uplifting the undeserving poor is a necessary but fatiguing occupation, and bigoted great-aunts must be appeased for the sake of "family harmony" at the expense of personal happiness. Nor do we escape that Alcott staple: a tragic early death provides timely lessons about the True Meaning of Life. Still despite the glurge factor, there is plenty of humor and romance, and fans of Rose and Phebe will be happy with the denouement.
