The first time I read this book was many years ago. After getting into a conversation with a friend online, I decided to reread, one of the reasons was there were more books in the series than I remembered. At first I was going to borrow them from the library, but when I saw I could get all four books in a one volume set for a pittance, I bought them for my Kobo.
“Little Women” was just as charming as I remembered it. The book introduces us to the Marches, a formerly prosperous family that has fallen on hard times and is now poor. The four girls are teenagers when the story begins and cover a little over a year if I remember correctly.
Their father is away at war, the two oldest girls are working to help the family make ends meet. We learn their hopes, dreams, and personality. The book ends with Meg’s engagement to John Brooke.
