Rose in Bloom is the follow on to Eight Cousins. After a four year gap, Rose returns home following a long voyage travelling around the world with her Uncle Alec and Phoebe. Now a young woman, she is back amongst her cousins and Aunts ready to start the next phase of her life. She has now come into her fortune and does not want to go down the traditional route for women, but instead wants to do something useful with her life and doesn't want to just get married and have nothing else. This is the story of how she decides to live her life in the future and her loves, both romantic and for her extended family of cousins, Aunts, Uncles and Phoebe.

There are some very sad dramatic moments in the book but at the same time it is a very uplifting,charming "wholesome" tale which lovers of Little Women will like. Unfortunately, at some times it can seem to be moralising a little too much and can get a bit irritating. It is almost as if the novel were written to be given to girls as a text on "how to live a good life". That having been said, the story is charming enough to put up with the moral tone, although I would not recommend this book to a newcomer to Louisa May Alcott to read as, particularly for a younger reader, the Little Women stories do not seem anywhere near as "preachy" as this one, which could perhaps deter someone from investigating them.

This Kindle edition, sadly, has many punctuation errors in it - lack of commas, full stops etc which make it very hard to read - I would advise perhaps checking another edition of the book out, because it can be annoying as it happens on virtually every page so you really have to keep your wits about you to read it!

I read this book about 12 years ago, when I was a teenager and loved it, so was looking forward to relive it.

The book is only what I can describe as wholesome, but sometimes far too preachy with morality - particularly whenever Uncle Alec makes his saintly appearance. However on the whole I did still enjoy the book if not as much as I did when I was younger. Rose is a good heroine although her desire to be so perfectly we'll rounded gets on your nerves a bit, although Mac is a very good sound character.

I nice enjoyable book to read just don't take it all so seriously.

Still a little too much emphasis on striving to help others and lead a blameless life, but less than in the prequel. This includes lots of very sweet romance, and offers a real insight into the social norms and mindset of the late nineteenth century. Recommended for fans of classic romance aged about 14 to 17, who don't mind a little preaching or inadvertent sexism.

I enjoyed reading this but am glad I am not part of the culture it came from. The characters are interesting and not always black and white. It made me smile a lot with the old fashioned, almost puritanical viewpoint of Rose's uncle and latterly Rose but I would recommend it to anyone who read Little Women and their follow-up books.

A fantastic book.Through this book,a tale of young children developing and 'blooming' is formed.I think this book is perfect for children who are in the stage of 'coming to grasps'with adult hood,for it deals with love,human temptations and death to name a few.

I love Louise May Alcott for writing such a book. It's is so splendid. It is like a real life and I wish that I were as good as the main character Rose. It made me cry and laugh and it is one of the best books I have written.

The story is great and deserves five stars. The four stars are because the narrator just isn't right. This is a story that should be told gently and the narrators voice is too sharp for me and spoils it. Just read the book.
