About the Author

Louisa May Alcott was both an abolitionist and a feminist. She is best known for Little Women (1868), a semiautobiographical account of her childhood years with her sisters in Concord, Massachusetts. Alcott, unlike Jo, never married: '. . . because I have fallen in love with so many pretty girls and never once the least bit with any man. ' She was an advocate of women's suffrage and was the first woman to register to vote in Concord, Massachusetts.

More About the Author

Louisa May Alcott was born in 1832 in Germantown, Pennsylvania, but grew up in Concord, Massachusetts. Educated by her father, the Transcendentalist thinker Bronson Alcott, she was influenced by the prominent men of his circle. Emerson, Hawthorne, Parker and Thoreau. The family was usually short of money, and she worked at various tasks from sewing to writing to help to support it. The Civil War broke out in 1861, and in 1862 she began to work as a volunteer army nurse in a Union Hospital. Out of this came her first book, Hospital Sketches (1863); she went on to write several Gothic romances and thrillers. With the publication of Little Women, her first full-length novel for girls, Alcott leapt from being an obscure, struggling New England writer to becoming the best-selling American author of the century. However, she suffered from ill health aggravated by early deprivation and overwork. Alcott died in Boston in 1888.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another wonderful short story from this author 12 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Two short stories for children. In `Marjorie's Three Gifts' a young girl's birthday wishes come true in an unexpected way. In `Roses and Forget-me-nots' a rich girl learns to think of others.

Although written for children, I have read and enjoyed them as an adult. Reminiscent of Little Women etc, by the same author. Two very short stories, which could teach us all about how to live our lives less selfishly.

Lovely story for young or old with a gentle hint of a moral. Wish I'd found it when my girls were young. Grannies, try it out on your youngsters.

I read it, as i always do to get to the end of a book in case in my view it got better, sorry to say not. In this case, I found this very heavy weather and boring so not to my taste.Sorry.
