ALCOTT, L.M.: Good Wives (Abridged)

The March sisters are among the most beloved characters in children’s literature, and Good Wives—the second volume of Little Women—picks up where its predecessor left off. As Meg marries John, Jo is faced with a romantic dilemma of her own, Amy travels to Europe, and Beth becomes increasingly ill. In this sensitive and lively novel, Alcott—‘the Thackeray, the Trollope, of the nursery and the schoolroom’, as Henry James called her—is on sparkling form.
