I could handle the old fashioned-ness in Little Women, because it is such a classic, but reading the sequel was too much preachiness for me.

Review by

To be perfectly honest, I didn't know LMA had written this book. After reading it I realized that the "Little Women" movies I have seen combine this book with "Little Women".This book picks up with Meg's wedding, which happens 3 years after "Little Women" ends. It goes on in much the same way as "Little Women", telling girls lives, Meg as a young wife and mother, Amy the artist going abroad with family, Jo the favorite Aunty and struggling writer, and beloved sweet Beth, even though I pretty sure most of the free world knows what happens, I'm not going to say it here, just in case.When this book ends the girls are married women with babies. The ending sets up the next book in the series "Little Men".
