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!
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.

Not Alcott's best work but still enjoyable. It's nice to read it in the kindle format. Can't beat the 0.00 price!Published 13 months ago by N Alvarez
Loved this book. Yes they are old fashioned but I love them.Published 15 months ago by Amazon Customer
Amusing if you like a period piece. Interesting that Archie may not marry an orphan from the poorhouse but Annabelle can marry a 'heathen Chinee' without anyone minding a bit. Read morePublished 18 months ago by CTB

I really enjoyed this book although I enjoyed the first book, Old Fashioned Girl, more. Would recommend both to others.Published on 21 April 2013 by Hilary Hassett
