It tells the story of Jo Bhaer and the children at Plumfield Estate School. It was inspired by the death of Alcott's brother-in-law, which reveals itself in one of the last chapters, when a beloved character from Little Women passes away.
I think I enjoyed this book as much as grandmother of eight (six of them boys) as I did when I was ten . I have been rereading all of the Alcott books.
The editors and proof readers have marred this lovely pice of Americana by leaving out words, putting words in wrong spots, and writing words with only half the proper letters. The book itself is still the lovely story I have read for past fifty-eight years!
Wow!!! This book is a sequel to Little Women. I dearly enjoyed this story; part 2 very much. I loved how the people in the previous story were portrayed so well in this second story. I love the new characters as well that were added in this book, too. I do recommend this story to anyone who really enjoyed reading the first book; Little Women. I really loved this second story so much. Great book.
